The Octagon Theatre, owned and managed by South Somerset District Council, is South Somerset’s Premier Arts and Entertainment facility. Over the course of a year we welcome over 200,000 visitors to the venue.
We are proud to be at the heart of the community in South Somerset with many local groups and societies staging events or holding meetings with us throughout the year. Our most recent Christmas pantomime was seen by over 29,500 people and these record-breaking pantomimes provide us with a chance to raise money for charities through annual bucket collections. Through the years we have raised over £100,000 for good causes.
Our ongoing support of the local community is at the very heart of what we do and so we are proud to sponsor the Believe in Somerset Contribution to Tourism Award.
