Ilminster Forum Updates

Ilminster Business Survey

The Ilminster Forum is working with South Somerset District Council to determine what can be done to help improve the viability of businesses in and around Ilminster. This survey, we hope, will identify what might be lacking and where assistance might be required. The Ilminster Forum and the businesses themselves will be able to use the data generated by the survey to apply for grant funding for projects that may have been highlighted in the survey. The only time we ask for personal information is in Questions 29 and 40, such personal information will not appear in any of our reports - ensuring data will be anonymous. This survey is aimed at all types of business and therefore some of the questions may not be relevant to your business. However, the more complete the forms are when they are returned to us, the easier it will be to persuade funders and other relevant organisations to support the actions needed to benefit Ilminster. We have tried to ensure that every business in Ilminster is aware of this survey, however if you know of a business that has not received this information please let us know. This survey is on Smart Survey and can be accessed using the following link:

Event: Two Gentlemen of Verona
Location: Dillington House, Ilminster

To celebrate the birth of the Taunton Thespians in 1928, and the ninety nifty years in which they have entertained Taunton, this high octane, high energy production of Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona will be set in the “Roaring” Twenties. What a great reason for a party - and what a party! Think flappers, think jazz, think decadence… Cue Valentine and Proteus, the two aforementioned gents, who step into this gloriously exciting, decadent, hopeful and hedonistic new era. (Well, it was if you were one of the lucky wealthy and aristocratic few). All absolutely ducky, until one tries to steal the other’s fiancée from under his nose. What happens next? Well, you’ll have to come along to one of our performances, set in stunning venues around the county on balmy July evenings. This engaging and heart-warming comedy tells a tale of deception, treachery, lies, banishment, flight, pursuit, disguise and All Manner of Dastardly Deeds. (Oh, and there’s a dog too. He’s called Crab.) One of Shakespeare’s most charming and least performed comedies, draped in gorgeous period costumes and set to lively Jazz Age music. Bring friends, chairs and a picnic, and prepare for Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before – absolutely the cat's meow, darling. (But don’t tell Crab…) Tickets are valid for any performance. For full list of dates and venues and further details visit: Remember it is an outdoor performance: please bring seats or rugs and warm clothes
