Watchet Music Festival is run by Watchet LIVE Community Interest Company (C.I.C) who organise events in and around the town of Watchet, West Somerset.
By staging such events the aim is to help make the town of Watchet a vibrant, diverse, and lively place to live and visit for both residents and visitors alike.

The great majority of those already working at the festival, prior to and during the weekend, are experienced volunteers. Experience what it is like to work behind the scenes and contribute to another successful event, by giving your time and energy in assisting the Watchet LIVE Crew.
