Bridgwater Together

Bridgwater Together began life as a free one day event in October. Every year it celebrates the vibrant diversity in the town through music and food, stories, dance and film from many cultures but due to Covid-19 lockdown the organisers have decided to add a digital event in April.

On 18th April 2020 between 6pm and 8pm audiences will be able to log in online to enjoy presentations and performances from the representatives of minority communities living in Bridgwater using the video conferencing platform Zoom. Find out more here.

If you would like to get involved in future events then please contact us. Watch this space for our next event or join our mailing list to be updated.

Attend the Ignite Creative Network

The Creative Network is an event hosted by Ignite Somerset at The Engine Room in Bridgwater on the last Wednesday of each month. See our calendar for details about the next event. In light of the current Covid-19 situation the network events are being livestreamed on Facebook. We're currently exploring how we can bring these to multiple online platforms.

Each Creative Network showcases a local artist. The event also provides an opportunity for artists to talk about their current projects in a supportive and engage with others in a collaborative environment.

Previous Creative Networks have explored the works of Geometer Freddie Bird and Theatre Maker Selina Keedwell.

Each month an interview with the selected artist is live-steamed and can be accessed on the Ignite Somerset Facebook page at

Ignite Somerset is delivered by Somerset Film & supported by Arts Council England and is dedicated to enabling arts makers and audiences in Somerset to harness the new opportunities afforded through digital technology to create and experience greater artistic excellence and innovation.

To make this a reality, we need you, the community and local artists and artworkers to help us determine what Seed can grow to become. We would love everyone in Sedgemoor to tell us about the kind of events and activities they would like us to create in partnership with them.

Artists and artworkers interested in being involved are also invited to tell us about your skills by completing this survey.

seed Sedgemoor has been created by a consortium of five local organisations led by Homes in Sedgemoor.  With Arts Council’s commitment in place for the first four years, our ten-year vision is to ensure that everyone living and working in Sedgemoor has a chance to experience more creative arts and culture.

We know that within our communities there is a wealth of knowledge, skills and creativity, some of which remains hidden or undervalued. We want to tap into this rich resource and especially want to meet and work with people who might not otherwise have had the chance to explore their creative ideas and passions. As the programme grows, we want to encourage and enable more and different people to take a lead in commissioning creative activities for the future.
