The third festival will be on July 20 this year and will run from 11am until 5pm.

This year it is bigger than ever with ten venues and sites across the centre of Bridgwater-Blake Garden, West Quay, Fore Street/Blakes Statue, King Square, East Over/New Road, Bridgwater Arts Centre, Blake Museum, Bridgwater Library and the Engine Room.

There will be over a hundred artists- performers, musicians, dancers and aerialists, circus artists, tight rope walkers, comedians and walkabout and statue acts.

Enjoy the music stage in Blake Garden hosting bands as King Tuts Revenge and local favourites Jassical Swing plus Portuguese accordionists and a range of other musicians reflecting Bridgwater’s rich musical tastes.

There will soon be news about an enormous sea creature coming to town for the Festival day! Look out for the display of art work in Kings Square from artists from Homberg, Germany - one of Bridgwater’s European twin towns.

The festival will be working with local businesses and community groups, schools and colleges to create a vibrant day of arts and local culture across the centre of town with stalls of local food and drink and arts and crafts.

There will be lots to do and see and a good date to put in your diary.
