Bridgwater people have always been proud of their town’s history whether it’s the first town to petition against the slave trade or the last battle on English soil. With our ‘Bridgwater History Day’ we hope we can dig a little deeper into that history. Throughout the day the Arts Centre will be home to a pick and mix selection of 7 topics from 700 years of Bridgwater History presented by 7 local historians using photos, film, music and short talks and in a format whereby you can join in and contribute your own thoughts on what has made our town special throughout the centuries.
The event will start at 10.30 and finish at 4.30 on Saturday 11th November. Food will be available and the bar will be open. People are welcome to stay for the whole day or drop in and out as they wish.
