THE second event to celebrate Porlock High Street is taking place this Saturday (July 3).

A words and music themed pop-up will be in the town from 10am until 2pm, to help the High Street to recover from the impact of the pandemic.

The event is the second one in a series funded by Somerset West and Taunton Council (SWT) and organised by Porlock High Street support group.

The series includes six events with different themes, all on the first Saturday of the month, with the last one in December.

The first event - an eco-wild themed market - happened four weeks ago.

This second event will bring musicians and performers to the High Street.

“Porlock High Street will be alive with music,” said Sarah Shorten, lead of the events team at Porlock High Street support group.

“Musicians will play in the street and in shops, a jukebox will invite passers-by to select a tune.

"You’ll also be able to “pop-in for a poem” at the local estate agent’s office and browse charity book stalls.

"The popular freecycle stall will be there again, alongside a stall specifically dedicated to redistributing unwanted musical instruments to local children.

“Our events want to encourage locals and visitors to rediscover a High Street and traders that are vibrant and authentic.”

Any money raised during the event will go towards musical instruments for a local toddler group.

Duncan McCanlis, chair of the Porlock High Street Support Group, explained: “We are grateful to SWT for providing the finance.

"This allows us to not only organise these community events, but we are also able to provide traders with a new online platform, put out more flower planters and benches around the High Street, all in support of Porlock’s amazing range of High Street shops.”
