Arts-lovers flock by the hundreds to Tacchi-Morris Taunton's new season launch

Taunton Mayor Libby Lisgo was among the 600 people who sampled the curiosity shop of free workshops and classes, visual art, performances and live music - including an outdoor gig from Louis and the Iguanas.
Youngsters got the ultimate dress-up session when the costume cupboard was opened wide, transforming themselves into Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, a bride, a sailor, a pirate, a medieval lady, or even Charlie Chaplin.
A Taunton Rock Show Chorus singing class for 15-25 year-olds was part of the free get-involved offering, along with an intensive dance session by newly-appointed Blitz Youth Dance Company director, Clare Parker.
Tacchi-Morris' director, Louise Lappin-Cook said, “It was a really lovely opportunity to showcase what we offer here at Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre, and it was lovely to see so many new visitors come and explore.”
New Mini Feet class dance tutor, Hannah Lefeuvre, said: “I'm absolutely delighted to be working here. Not only is it a great venue, but it's been coming to life and becoming a real community centre, encouraging new audiences.”
