The festival is a community event curated by the community for it. There are lots of ways to get involved….

If you are interested in performing at next years event or know someone who might be we’ll be putting a call out for artists shortly. Subscribe to our e-bulletins at the bottom of the page to receive the call!

The festival is organised by Seed Sedgemoor with a Steering Group and volunteers from the Sedgemoor community. It’s rewarding to be part of so if you are interested in being involved please do get in touch.

Octogenarian Val Bannister who played her piano from her home to onlookers said:

“It’s satisfying to be able to do something to give people a bit of a laugh.” And added that the event has been “Jolly good fun.”

Phil Gibby, Area Director, Arts Council, South West, said:

“It is fantastic to learn of the impact of this wonderful work by Seed, one of the South West’s two Creative People and Places (CPP) projects for 2022-25. Increasing creative and cultural opportunities for communities that need it most, is at the heart of our 10-year vision we set out in Let’s Create, and Seed play a vital role in bringing that vision to life. As a result, more people can experience and be inspired by high quality and sustainable culture right on their doorsteps. We cannot wait to see their work develop and witness the impact of this investment across Sedgemoor over the next few years.”

Scott O’Hara, Director, Seed, said:

“Front Garden Music Festival started last year as a lockdown event. We received such a strong demand from the community to do it in again in an expanded format, and the feedback on this years event was even greater. We are looking at expanding to even more locations across two days in 2023.”
