ACT was formed out of a passion for Taunton and its aim continues to be to raise the status of our County Town and to improve the local economy.

After we attended the Rod Stewart Concert at the County Cricket ground it became the catalyst for our campaign after seeing the amount of revenue it brought into the town in just one day.


After gaining a large following on social media we directed our focus onto promoting our campaign and supporting local talent to create a foundation on which to go forward.

We have ran several live events named ACT Fest which have raised funds for both our campaign and local musicians. We were also very proud to be part of Taunton Live 2015.


Our future is to provide Taunton with a foremost art form venue which spans music, art, film, theatre and comedy as well as learning activities – full of diversity.

We aim to achieve this by putting forward a business and development plan to Taunton Deane Borough Council and then using this to secure investment.
