Carnival Concerts

The date of the Carnival Concerts are easier to work out, it was agreed a few years ago that the concert would always start on the Monday following Bridgwater Fair

For those of you who have not heard of Bridgwater Fair it is a four day event held at the St Matthews Field and always starts on the last Wednesday in September, finishing on the Saturday, the concert then starts the following Monday.

So for 2022 the last Wednesday in September is 28th September, so the Concert starts on the following Monday, 3rd October.

Future Dates

2022 – Monday 3rd October until Saturday 15th October

2023 – Monday 30th September until Saturday 11th October

Concert Auditions
