Bridgwater Arts Centre, Somerset

  • Bridgwater Arts Centre 11-13 Castle Street Bridgwater, Somerset, TA6 3DD United Kingdom (map)

Part of the BACTalks programme; a series of FREE presentation events, focussing on three themes: inspiring people, inspiring stories and celebrating the local.

Join us to mark the 50th anniversary year of the closure of the Somerset & Dorset, one of Britain’s best loved railways.

The evening will combine an illustrated talk ‘The Legacy of the S&D’ by Mike Beale, and artist Kate McStraw sharing her curious travelling Memory Museum!

Kate has curated a collection of memories and oral histories from the glory days of the S&D, preserving them through associated objects. Find out about Dickie Bird’s Shillingstone Rose and the infamous Barber of Bath!
