BRIDGWATER NEWS: Feast of fun at Quayside Festival
THE first-ever Quayside Festival held in Bridgwater on Saturday (July 29, 2017) has been given the big thumbs-up from visitors.
A whole host of events took place at various parts of the town – Blake Gardens, the Blake Statue and Fore Street, Angel Place, Bridgwater Library, Bridgwater Arts Centre, King Square, Eastover, West Quay, Engine Room and Unity House.
The outdoor summer festival played host to an array of live music, arts and entertainment and was able to celebrate Bridgwater’s and Sedgemoor’s diverse and creative culture and showcase both local talent and national artists.
The organisers, Fuse Performance, worked with the Bridgwater Cultural Partnership and local artists to create an exciting programme.
Bridgwater Press had photographers Jeff Searle and Brian Bateman out and about mingling with the crowds and judging by their photos everyone seemed to be having a great time.
There were a number of walkabout acts as well including the fabulous Pirate Statue while members of the Mary Stanley Midwifery Led Unit were dressed in TV’s Call the Midwife style to promote the unit which is based at the new Bridgwater Hospital.
