Taunton Theatre Association is the largest provider of arts and culture in Somerset West and Taunton; with a track-record of successfully delivering over 1,000 live performances, films, arts activities and exhibitions a year.  Like you, we know regional arts venues are important to the cultural, social and economic well-being of the people they serve.

Ambitious, yet realistic, plans to redevelop The Brewhouse into a 750-seat theatre, dedicated cinema, 180-seat studio theatre, art gallery and community studios has been put on hold by Somerset West and Taunton Council.  These plans, based on a decade of research and feasibility studies will deliver a sustainable, flexible, multipurpose venue that will reinvigorate Taunton and benefit the region and the people who live there.  The project, anticipated for The Brewhouse site, could be repurposed and provide a spectacular centre piece for Firepool.

The postponement of this development jeopardises the continuation of the high-quality, accessible and diverse arts events we deliver for you.  The Council asked us to request additional funding to sustain our cultural offer, aware that The Brewhouse’s current lack of seats and ageing facilities require increased investment.  A decision on funding is imminent, if you value what we do, please make your voice heard by signing our petition, My Theatre Matters.
