Coronavirus – event postponed

At this very concerning time for all of us the health and wellbeing of visitors, staff and volunteers is of the utmost importance to the South West Heritage Trust.

For that reason the Trust has taken the decision to postpone or cancel all planned events up to the end of March and to review later events in due course.

If you have booked and paid in advance for an event, please contact us and we would be happy to provide a refund. You can email us at or phone 01823 255088

In light of the rapidly-changing national picture we’ll be updating our website regularly with the latest information about Trust sites and activity.

Refresh and revitalise body, mind and soul with yoga and art at the museum.

Join yoga teacher Bev Alderson for a one-hour Hatha Yoga session in the historic Great Hall of Taunton Castle. Downward dog, cat and cow stretch, and strike that mountain pose surrounded by 400 million years of history.

The class is suitable for yogis of mixed abilities, from beginners to seasoned practitioners. It will include warm ups, standing and seated poses, breath work and relaxation.

Having found your zen, take the chance to soak up some modernist art. Contemplate the surreal world of the painter Tristram Hilllier and see artworks on loan from Tate Britain and National Galleries Scotland in our exhibition ‘Landscapes of the Mind.’


Maximum ten yogis per session. Mats and blocks provided.

£10 per person
