The Brewhouse to host LGBT History Month Events

This February The Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton will once again be playing host to a weekend of LGBT comedy, theatre, dance and music during the weekend of Friday 10th to Sunday 12th February

You will be able to enjoy professional theatre and dance shows celebrating and exploring LGBT themes; hear brilliant music and superb comedy or even try your hand at free dance and musical theatre workshops.

The Organisers are offering people chance to enjoy mingling and meeting new people as the theatre offers us a safe and buzzing place to relax, be entertained, even perform (why not sign up to read some of your own writing or sing song at the LGBT open mic!) and just be together enjoying the very best LGBT creativity!

The event is being marketed as “The Outset Festival” which began life in 2011. Driven by theatre maker and teacher Louise Barrett the festival found its home at the Brewhouse Theatre, Taunton when the forward thinking artisic director Robert Miles saw the potential and the importance of such a festival in the heart of the South West region.

Outset aims to create new opportunities for visibility and affirmation in relation to existing and emerging lesbian, gay and transgender artists and theatrical works. It now aspires to be an annual event produced by The Brewhouse and coordinated by Louise; so that Somerset can celebrate the contribution of LGBT people to theatre, past, present, locally, regionally and nationally.
