Somerset Art Weeks is definitely an event worth celebrating and we are hoping that you can join us at this year's launch party on Friday 12th September.

Prepare for an evening of the unexpected as artists and guests gather to enjoy a unique evening at the Red Brick Building in Glastonbury. Naturally there will be artworks on display, also a film screening and live music from Hacker Farm. This Somerset based electronic collective harness found objects and salvaged materials, including DIY speakers, circuit-bent toys and self-built synthesisers to bring you their unique sound - their set also promises an interactive element...

The Guardian newspaper listed Hacker Farm in their alternative Mercury Prize Shortlist last year  and this is how they describe the sound of Hacker Farm

“...weirdly enveloping and captivating. Once you find a way into their world, you lose yourself in it, and it’s harder to find a way out than you might imagine. There’s certainly nothing else quite like it out there.”

The amazing 'Bocabar' will be open throughout the evening offering a fantastic menu, so if you wish to really make a night of it why not plan to have your supper with us. You may peruse the menu here. The bar offers a great selection of drinks, including coffee, and the cocktail menu looks amazing.

So come on what are you waiting for, get on down to The Red Brick Building and celebrate the launch of Somerset's largest Arts Festival. I know that some of you that are participating will be using every available hour, minute, second as you count down and prepare for your exhibitions but surely you deserve a night off and this is a great opportunity to meet with other participants and the visitors that will be coming to support your venue during the fortnight of open studios.
