Ilminster Arts Centre temporary closure

ILMINSTER Arts Centre at the Meeting House, which is marking its silver jubilee in 2020, has announced a temporary closure in response to the ongoing Coronavirus public health situation.

A spokesperson said the café was now closed and that concerts and workshops for the foreseeable future would be cancelled: “Ticket holders should contact the arts centre for a refund, but we are also asking, if they are in a position to do so, to consider rolling their ticket over to a future event, or to treat their ticket as a donation. As a small charity, with no external funding, this would be much appreciated.”

Ilminster Arts Centre, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, presents a unique programme of concerts, particularly high quality jazz, exhibitions, art and craft workshops throughout the year, and its cafe is a popular destination within Ilminster.

The spokesperson said: “With the support of the local community over the past quarter of a century, Ilminster Arts Centre has developed into a much loved community hub that celebrates and promotes enjoyment of the arts. We would like to thank all our supporters and look forward to welcoming them back in better times.’
