Love Somerset? Love art? Love railways? You can enjoy all of these delights on Saturday 19th May when The ArtTrains transport you between stations on the West Somerset Railway.
Artists and performers from West Somerset, the Quantocks, the Brendon Hills and the 10 Parishes will be taking over the entire network and showing how their art can travel with you along the West Somerset Railway.
Your ticket will give you the chance to listen to poetry and music on trains throughout the day. At each station, you can get off and take part in a workshop, watch a demonstration, look at art, buy art, devour a cream tea! There will be artists demonstrating their skills and a chance for you to get involved – whatever age you are!
"This is part of the Making the Links in Western Somerset project funded by the European Union and Defra, which encourages creative industries and tourism businesses to work together to try out innovative ideas.”
