2015 Fina Poster – Superact-BlakeGardens2015 FINAL
Blenheim Gardens Music Festival
Blenheim Gardens Music Festival was the first project Superact picked up back in 2006. It is the largest of the summer bandstand festivals and comprises of 16 concerts across three months. It is based in Blenheim Gardens, Minehead, on the rather futuristic looking bandstand! The Blenheim Gardens cafe is based just a few feet away from the bandstand and serves fantastic refreshments all season long. Deck chairs are available most days and there is a lot of space on the green in front of the bandstand for families, large groups and picnic blankets. The gardens are beautiful and a bit of music at the weekend really brings the place alive.
Blenheim Gardens Music Festival News
Sadly, due to lack of funding, there is no Blenheim Gardens Music Festival taking place in 2015. However, we hope to be back in 2016 so please keep an eye on our website for further updates.
West Exe Park Music Festival
From 2011 – 2013 Superact programmed a season of bandstand concerts on the beautiful West Exe Park. The programme was funded by the local Heathcoat Trust and provided performance opportunities for local brass bands and community music groups.
