SEDGEMOOR Masquerade Week got under way on Sunday with a special Variety Show held at Bridgwater Town Hall.
The 3½ hour-long show, which runs until Thursday, features performances from the Bridgwater carnival clubs and a selection of other acts.
It is the first of a number of low key and symbolic activities organised by local carnivalities after the annual traditional illuminated carnival
processions and carnival concerts were cancelled for the second successive year due to the continuing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
To check to see if there are any tickets left contact the Carnival Centre in High Street, Bridgwater or call 01278 428220.
