Somerset County Gazette: Save Brewhouse Campaign

THE Somerset County Gazette has launched a campaign with a simple message and a simple aim: SAVE OUR BREWHOUSE..

Since the shock closure of Taunton’s much-loved town centre theatre on February 21, the outpouring of anger from the people of the town has been vast and sustained..

Hundreds of people attended a vigil to remember the 36-year history of the Brewhouse and already action groups have formed to get the centre re-opened..

More than 100 people have already offered to work for free as volunteers to reclaim the venue from the hands of the administrators. County Gazette editor Alex Cameron said: “The closure of the Brewhouse has prompted one of the biggest reader responses we have ever had. “Our postbag has been bulging and our phones have been ringing off the hook. People are in shock and they want to know how they can help.”.
