For those of you who think Watchet is a sleepy little seaside town, think again! There is so much to do and most of its for free. Take a look at the program of events scheduled for this month on lovewatchet events calendar and get outside and enjoy!

Sea of Songs 2022


Watchet is getting ready for musicians, artists and poets to return for the second ‘Sea of Songs’ on 9th July 2022.

Fox Lane Studios with a help from Amy Yon have organised a day of music, art and media which all kicks off at 12.00 here in the Boat Museum. This non-profit music/arts festival aim is to encourage the audience to be part of the creative process and engage them in various activities.

David Milton will start the event at 12.00.  Tough Mama will be playing from 12.20pm and then Ellie Ford at 13.55pm here in the Boat Museum. There are other performances around town.

The programme for all the performances is here….. yeah!!!!

A different perspective!

I do like a different perspective!

Even if that’s just from the end of East Quay!!

Watchet takes on a totally different feel when viewed from the sea. The stack of properties piled up on the right hand side. The different levels, points, flat roofs, pitched roofs, the reds and whites and greys of the brick and stone. The higgledy piggledy arrangement which is Market Street, West Street and Lorna Doone. Then straight ahead, the flat open space of the Esplanade and its lollipop trees neatly lined between the Victorian shelters. Then finally the new East Quay building, sitting alongside the array of boats up high and dry. The new building reflecting the lines of the old, with the twists and turns of grey, white and red buildings, piled precariously on top of each other. A flash of blue from within, tying in with the boats nestled neatly in rows, bobbing in the Marina.

With all that’s going on in the world, there isn’t anywhere I’d rather be than sitting checking out a new perspective!
