North Somerset hosts a number of arts and cultural events across the year, and is home to many creative and artistic businesses and individual makers. Events range from one-offs like the 2015 sensation of Dismaland by Banksy in Weston-super-Mare, to annual events like the Weston Air Festival Somerset and the Illuminated Carnival that have gained a loyal following. There are theatres, cinemas and local productions hosted throughout the year and across the district. A wide variety of local arts and culture clubs, organisations and groups are also active in the area.
Coming up this spring and summer is new programme of theatre and live entertainment at the Tropicana.
