What's On

Jeremy Secker’s modern English adaptation, Telling Canterbury Tales is based on four of Geoffrey Chaucer’s classic tales.

Taunton Thespians are telling tales this summer – not any old tales, but four of Chaucer’s best: the Wife of Bath’s Tale, the Miller’s Tale, the Reeve’s Tale and the Nun’s Priest’s Tale. Spicy, saucy and colourful, these tales stand the test of time and have been jauntily translated into modern rhyming couplets in such a way that they are instantly understood and enjoyed.

Taunton Thespians will be touring the region from 11 to 22 July. For full details of other venues please go to: Tickets are valid for any performance during the tour.

Please note this is an open-air production and we recommend you bring a chair or cushion to sit on and a warm coat! Doors open from 6.00 pm – bring a picnic and your own choice of drinks. The production is suitable for 12 year olds upwards.

Taking Flight - Drawing, painting and printing landscape and birds in flight

Acclaimed artist, Sara Dudman RWA, leads this inspiring Art course focusing on the explosive energy of birds in flight and the patterns and shapes these wonderful creatures create as they wheel and whirl in the sky.

Have you ever been given a set of new paints and, although you’re excited, you’re not quite sure how to use them properly or how to use the different types of brushes? This course is designed to teach you how to paint with acrylics, understand how colours and marks can be expressive as well as making an image. By the end of the course, you will have created your own canvas painting, a series of outdoor paint sketches and a group 3D collaborative print. You will be more confident to paint, understanding better how to mix, apply and layer paint and use different types of brushes and tools for different purposes.
