Somerfest 2018 is creatively produced by Fuseperformance  presenting a professional programme of extraordinary talent. We have an exciting programme of local, national, international acts.

Somerfest 2018  will be an exciting year of performance, arts, sport, circus, theatre, dance, creating interactive  playful environments, showcasing music and talented artists.

We would like to thank  Taunton Deane Borough Council for their continuing support for our youth and community  cultural projects and festival operational support and commission, our business sponsors,  Orchard Centre, our wonderful festival makers and  of course our audiences without all of you the festival would not be possible.

The festival is free to attend but not to make, we want to keep the festival free and accessible  and there are a number of ways you can help and support us

As festival organisers Fuseperformance  work with local, people across Taunton, Somerset and the south west region  and  nurture and support local artists, from beginners to emerging companies, and beyond as part of the annual creative training hubs. We also invite the best of outdoor arts, artist’s and companies to work with us to offer an inspirational array of arts from street theatre, aerial circus, puppetry, contemporary dance, street music and outdoor shows.
