The Taunton Sinfonietta, Somerset

Taunton Worldclass Music Festival




Taunton Live have asked that the following information be circulated. I am sure we all hope the Festival will be a huge success so I do hope you wont object to me contacting you. There are certainly some very attractive events!

Next month Taunton Festival of the Arts (founded over 100 years ago in 1913) launches a week packed with live music.

This is our contribution to Taunton Live! 2015, a festival of visual arts, dance and music.
Taunton has not hosted such a feast of high quality arts for a very long time!

We need everyone to get behind the Festival to ensure its success ... and to put Taunton Deane on the map!

I have listed six attractive events below and it
would help us enormously if you will do whatever you can to spread the word about them.

To browse the full variety of events please go to the
Taunton Live! 2015
website.

Yours sincerely
