The Brewhouse Theatre and Arts Centre, Taunton
For nearly 35 years the Brewhouse has been developing as a leading South West venue and, more than that, a hub for the arts in Somerset's county town. However, with the disappearance of local authority funding, it has also missed out on continuing funding from the Arts Council England. We went to Taunton whilst the "England, My England" festival was in full swing on St. George's day and spoke to CEO Robert Miles about the Brewhouse and the work that it does and also invited him to comment on the current funding situation and the implications for the future for Somerset's foremost arts venue. The band is the Bottle Top Boogie Band and Sweet Coppin are the clog dancers to whom thanks for permission to record their performances.
