Bridgwater’s Quayside Festival will be on this year from 11am to 5pm Saturday July 8th in the centre of the town and will feature live music, dance, street bands, street theatre, stalls, food and drink, family activities and crafts. An eco-arts trail created by artists and children and young people from schools in Bridgwater and a dance created by young people inspired by the River Parrett will also be a feature of this years event. Bridgwater Town Council Portfolio Holder for Culture, Arts and Heritage , Cllr Irena Hubble (Fairfax West, Labour) says “From the Berserka eco giant at the Engine Room to the gentle live harp music at the Arts Centre…take a stroll round all the arts and heritage venues in Bridgwater as well as the outdoor activities in the town centre and Blake gardens. This is free festival to suit all tastes. Looking forward to seeing you there”.
Quayside festival has been a major initiative in Bridgwater for the best part of the past decade and once again the town will come alive with all the various art works. It truly is a celebration of Bridgwater.
