Art & Photography Exhibition is back

The Somerton Art & Photography exhibition returns to the town next May after an absence of two years.

The exhibition, which is part of the annual Somerton Music & Arts Festival, will open in the Parish Rooms on the 28th May and run until  the 4th June, opening daily from 10am to 4pm. (Closed Sunday 29th May).

Alongside the exhibition, the festival will be hosting talks and interactive workshops for all ages in the Pinney Room within the Parish Rooms throughout the week.

The exhibition  provides an opportunity for all amateur photographers, artists, sculptures and needle-workers to display their work and exhibit entries will be accepted until 13th May. However, space is limited so exhibitors are limited to four pieces in each category are advised to submit their entries as soon as possible.

The exhibition is free to the public and many of the exhibits will be for sale. Visitors will be able to vote for their favourite piece in each category and the artist/photographer in each category with the most votes at the end of the exhibition will receive a certificate of merit.

With 500 visitors and 100 artists exhibiting this is a popular event providing opportunity for artists and visitors.

Thank You

The festival organisers would like to thank everybody who supported this year’s Somerton Music and Arts Festival. We had a fantastic week of events throughout the town, culminating with Somerstock, our family-friendly music festival, at the Recreation Ground.

We still have a couple of events to come: Jive Night on 19th August and Oktoberfest on October 9th, both at Edgar Hall. Make sure you have your tickets

It was disappointing that we had to cancel a couple of our planned events because some of the Covid-19 restrictions still being in place, and run others in a slightly different way to ensure everybody stayed safe and had a great time. But we will be back next year, bigger and better than ever, and we already have our headline act in place for Somerstock. The Hoosiers will be headlining on Saturday 9th July.

We would also like to thank all our sponsors, without whom we would not be able to put on the festival.

We hope everybody had a safe and enjoyable time, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
