Following on from the success of Taunton Live 2015, 2016 and 2017, Our fourth Creative and Performing Arts Festival is due to take place throughout the whole month of July. As well as offering an exciting and diverse range Arts and Cultural events we will also put on Taunton Live’s Big Saturday on July 21st in Goodlands Gardens.

The third ‘Taunton’s Got Talent’ offers both young and old the chance to shine with the winner receiving a fantastic £500 cash prize! This year hosted by Mecca Bingo, talented hopefuls will get the chance to perform in the same venue as stars like The Beatles, Sir Elton John, and The Rolling Stones! Previous winners Allana Chloe and Absolute Pitch have since enjoyed hugely successful careers.

We invite you to get involved in this wonderful multicultural, Community Art event in Taunton. Taunton Live is organised by GoCreate Taunton, a Community Interest Company based in Taunton Deane whose members are creative practitioners.
