Your Theatre your Shows

Bringing live performance and shows to Axbridge, Cheddar and the Polden Villages

Would you like to see some live performance and shows in your local village or town?

Seed has partnered with Take Art to offer a menu of theatre, spoken word, dance and other live arts events suited to small towns, villages and rural communities.

The Rural Touring scheme has been running in Somerset since 1987 and offers subsidised performances to make shows more affordable to see. Now Seed is supporting Take Art to bring shows to Sedgemoor  – we are particularly keen to find venues in the Polden Hills, Cheddar and Axbridge where residents have asked us for more theatre!

If you would like theatre, music, dance or spoken word brought in your village hall, pub, town hall or public space do get in contact – we can see if there is an act that fits the bill.

We want to enable the community to experience high quality theatre, music, dance or spoken word performances in their local areas, chosen by you and offered at an affordable price.

Death Who’s Coming To Dinner

A favourite of Rural Touring Schemes across the country, Gonzo Moose are back with their side-splitting brand of comedy theatre.

Gonzo Moose is back with the comedy murder mystery, Death Who’s Coming To Dinner!

It was a very strange kind of dinner party to celebrate Lord Charles’s birthday. Every guest had a motive for his murder…. And when they realise that a killer is in their midst, they begin to look at each other, first with doubt, then with suspicion, and finally with terrifying fear.

Which one is the murderer? Who will be their next victim? Can you help them solve the mystery before the murderer strikes again?

All will be revealed in this wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy whodunnit inspired by the golden age of detective fiction and the novels of Dorothy L Sayers, GK Chesterton and off course, Agatha Christie.

Join three fearless actors, playing over 15 roles in 85 minutes of fast-paced fun, thrilling action and hilariously gruesome deaths.
