Front Garden Music Festival

Come and join us around Sedgemoor for our Front Garden Music Festival! 

On Sunday 6th June 2021, life will be a little more normal in the UK. We will be looking for opportunities to celebrate and enjoy the summer. For performing artists, however, they will still be locked out of many performing opportunities with restrictions in audience numbers expected to still be in place and many venues unlikely to reopen.

Across Sedgemoor, however, local artists will be coming out to play! As part of the Front Garden Music Festival they will literally step out their front doors, set up in their front gardens and perform for neighbours and passers-by. The event will also be live streamed with artists encouraged to live stream their own performance, and an official roaming live stream team of three travelling across Sedgemoor to capture the highlights..com
