MUSIC makers in Burnham and Highbridge can take part in a UK-wide community music festival this summer.

As in 2013, Our Big Gig will host hundreds of music events on July 11-13.

Organised by Taunton-based music and arts organisation SuperAct, Our Big Gig grew out of the Bandstand Marathon, where 9,000 people across Britain simultaneously performed Coldplay’s ‘Viva La Vida’ to close the London 2012 Olympics.

Funded by the Department for Communities & Local Government, over 200,000 people attended 326 free music events last year, and Taunton and Weston were included.
