A CONCERT to celebrate all things Somerset will be coming to Bridgwater later this year.

The Songs of Somerset concert will be held on Saturday, May 11, known to the most committed locals among us as Somerset Day.

'Gifted' singer-songwriter and local postman Timothy Dean will host a concert at Bridgwater Arts Centre to raise money for a local charity.

Tickets are priced at £12, with profits going to the Somerset Crisis Fund, which aims to support the county’s residents who are hit by the cost of living crisis.

A spokesperson for the concert said: "His repertoire will span kings, battles, pirates, highwaymen, the Devil, Jesus, sex scandal, murderers, ghosts, nursery rhymes, fairies, cavemen and even aliens.... and, of course, Cider!"

Timothy, the local postman for the village of Brent Knoll, spends his free time in researching Somerset’s rich history of fact and legend to write and perform unique folk songs.

“My day-job as a postie enables me to see how the cost of living crisis is hurting so many people in Somerset," Timothy said.

"Somerset Day is the obvious moment to celebrate our county’s rich history of wonderful stories AND raise funds to help our neighbours who are struggling with the challenges of heating and eating."
