Take Art is a unique, life-changing organisation that doesn’t live in an arts venue, dance studio or whacking great theatre but in the villages, towns and rural communities of Somerset.
We've been bringing joy, support, entertainment and inspiration to places where people need it the most for almost 35 years. From 1987 to date we've put on 3200 shows in 260 villages, paying 3250 artists over a million pounds in fees to entertain and enthral over 200 000 audience members.
But pictures speak louder than words, so we invite you to take a peek behind the scenes, and get to know us by watching our Take Art Feature Film below.
