Celebrating the Diversity of Culture in Somerset

After 4 incredible years (2015,2016,2017 and 2018) organising Taunton Live Arts Festival, GoCreate Taunton CIC are having a much quieter year in 2019 – but are busy applying for funding for an exciting Taunton Live Arts Fringe to take place throughout Taunton Deane for the whole month of July in 2020.

For 2019 GoCreate will be putting on some really exciting projects:

Taunton’s Got Talent. The fourth ‘Taunton’s Got Talent’ offers both young and old the chance to shine with the winners receiving fantastic cash prizes! For the second 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, Absolute Pitch and Leila Fay have since enjoyed hugely successful careers. This year there will be new Under 18’s and Over 18’s categories and two incredible cash prizes!

Auditions will be held at Mecca Bingo for Under 18’s on Sunday 7th Julyfrom 12-3pm, Over 18’s on Sunday 14th July 12-3pm and The Finals will be on Sunday 21st July 11-3pm. Please email Jenny@gocreate.org.uk for more information.
