New Enterprise, Community & Cultural Centre Brings More Creativity to Somerset
Residents and visitors of Somerset and Taunton now have greater event options at the creativity-inspired Victorian hall destination, Creative Innovation Centre CIC (CICCIC), Taunton. CICCIC has added a high quality cultural event and meeting space to Somerset’s and Taunton’s ‘things to do’ offer and is becoming one of the best places for Taunton events.
The year old Community Interest Company that focuses on enterprise, community and culture is available to individuals and groups and will contribute greatly to the much needed indoor meeting and event space in Somerset. A number of touring events and workshops are also available and highlight the need to support businesses and communities through events, workshops and other special cultural events including live music, exhibitions, performances, and conferences with a licensed bar and café space and food catering options.
“In our first year over 2000 community members have got involved, 3000 16-24 year olds found things to do and 900 businesses passed through our doors” says CICCIC director Andrew Knutt.
2014 looks like a packed a year for CICCIC with the launch of the monthly Jazz Club on Thursday’s plus a range of creative workshops, business events and conferences designed by CORE as well as art exhibitions, comedy nights, lectures and performances.
Richard Holt, co-director of CICCIC and CORE says “Quality Taunton events are hard to come by and many groups need a space and place to meet and get support. We are home for poetry and art groups, a youth café with charity SAV and many more groups.
As a Community Interest Company CICCIC’s profits go back to into the community we serve and “It’s great to see Taunton events that offer such high quality culture” continues Richard.
