THIS year’s Bridgwater Carnival concerts have been cancelled because of the ‘pivotal’ role the town hall is playing during the coronavirus pandemic.
The concerts were set to start on Monday, October 4 and run until Saturday, October 26.
Dave Stokes, publicity director for Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival, said “safety and community health” took top priority.
He added: “The carnival concerts as we know them will now next take place between Monday, October 3 to Saturday, October 15 2022.
“However, we are in discussions with the clubs along with other stakeholders, and we are exploring other options for this year.
“Over the coming weeks, we will continue to work with our entrants, the Somerset County Guy Fawkes Carnivals Association and the local authorities about our other 2021 activities, including our planned carnival procession on Saturday, November 6.”
