Makeover for Bridgwater Arts Centre
8:30pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
A “REAL revamp” is underway at Bridgwater Arts Centre ahead of its exciting autumn programme.
While the arts hub normally shuts up shop during August for spring cleaning, this year’s is more of a major job, says Louise Detheridge, centre administrator.
“The hall’s changing colour, we’ve just applied for new carpets, and all the paintwork in the gallery is done, so it’s looking nice and clean.
The scaffolding’s coming down in the back, it’s a real revamp”, she says. “It’s going to look really good when it’s finished.”
Among the run of acts and events kicking off next month is political activist, broadcaster and stand-up, Mark Thomas on September 28, as the first of three big-name comics comprising the art centre’s season of top comedy.
Gigging on September 6 is Mad Dog McRea, voted Best Act of the Year in the 2012 South West Music Awards, with his own-brand gypsy jazz blues.
While accomplished folk triumvirate Faustus – former nominees for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – will play October 2.
Bridgwater Arts Centre reopens on Wednesday September 4.
