Full Description of Organisation

The Midsomer Norton Community Trust aims to build a vibrant community in the town.

 

Based in the Town Hall, the Community Trust oversees day to day management of three community buildings within the town – the Town Hall, Unit 14 and the Orchard Hall – with the aim of maximising their benefit to the community by running as many events, activities and support groups as possible. The Community Trust also runs the Midsomer Norton Men's Shed, a thriving group based at Farrington Farm.

 

The Trust runs a popular events programme which includes the Community Cinema, live music concerts and National Theatre Live – all at affordable ticket prices so that residents on very low incomes can take part and feel less isolated. During the week, the buildings’ core activity is to provide a home to Midsomer Norton’s Community Groups who in turn support the whole community, including many less advantaged people in our area. 

 

The Trust also organises major events across the town such as the Fayre, M-Fest, Christmastmas Lightsd Switch-Ons, the Jubilee Weekender and Midsomer Norton Pride. It also played a key role in bringing the Carnival back to the High Street.
