Come Together is a celebration to mark our ability to gather together again after 18 months of lockdowns and other social restrictions.
Residents and visitors alike are invited to join in afternoon of great songs and festival vibes. Follow the band on a short procession from the car park at Apex Park. Don’t forget to bring a picnic and your dancing shoes! Once in Apex Park, Tongues of Fire will perform many well-known classics including the popular Beatles tunes Come Together and Just a Little Help From my Friends, as well as Lean on Me, Lovely Day, Happy, Bring Me Sunshine and What a Wonderful World. Words will be provided so everyone can let their hair down and join in!

Director of Seed, Scott O’Hara says “We are very excited to be able to create an opportunity for Highbridge and Burnham to join together, listen to some great music, have a picnic, sing and even dance together once again.”
The joyful noise of street band Tongues of Fire is perfect for celebrating that sense of togetherness. They combine New Orleans street-band music, English folk, circus music, original material and popular songs, to create a rich, wild and unique sound, both very English and international.
Together with Create You, Seed have created free festival headband kits for you to get creative before the big day. These can be collected from Create You, Crafty Comforts, Material Needs, Julian’s or the Toy Cupboard from Saturday 11 September.
A competition for the best headbands will judged on the day by members of Tongues of Fire and members of Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council who will select their favourite headbands to win a voucher from Create You. Even those who cannot attend on the day are invited to submit photos of their own creations on social media by posting on Seed’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the tag @seedsedgemoor by 1pm on Sunday 26 September.
This event has been made possible with funding for Arts Council England, The National Lottery and Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council.
