Local Champions

We are indebted to our Local Champions.  These are volunteers who are our eyes and ears, our hands and feet, our own heartbeat in the nooks and crannies of Somerset.  Local Champions help bring our shows to audiences within their own community.  But it's more than that.  It's a relationship built on a shared idea: to keep telling and sharing the Somerset story.

“I was hooked the moment I saw Rex the King in a pub garden. This is what theatre should be about - up close and personal. I couldn’t wait to share this with my village and we’ve hosted 3 productions since then, with another in the works."

"Wassail raises the bar for what can be achieved.  They tell the Somerset story.”

“Wassail makes highly accessible shows, which are expertly tailored to a wide range of venues.  The Somerset theme holds real meaning for an audience that feels a profound pleasure in being seen and respected."
