Colorful Drummers

Cultural Programme

Culture and creativity will play a crucial role in making the high street a more attractive and vibrant place.

Culturally Chard

Chard’s High Street Heritage Action Zone will include a cultural programme. Led by a consortium made up of local cultural and community organisations, this group will work collectively and with others to deliver an exciting range of events and activities. The programme, called Culturally Chard, will invite you to celebrate Chard’s unique town centre heritage, alongside the existing cultural activity in the town. The consortium has applied to Historic England for funding to deliver the programme from 2021 to 2024.

Details of the programme will be shared when available.
