Music and activities

The Frome Independent keeps the best of the summer festival atmosphere going all year long, with retro soundtracks at our ‘Village Green’; the best new and grass roots acoustic music on the Market Place stage; themed editions like Garden Day, (playing in the film above); as well as plenty of community and kids activities.

Our friends at Donna Somerset Vintage Mobile Disco have put together a playlist to transport you to a market day, while illustrator Matt Wellsted has provided ‘Colour Frome In’ versions of his posters for you to print at home – so click the link below to get the music playing, grab the felt tips and get the kids busy, put your feet up and take a virtual wander around Frome visiting our fabulous designers, makers, producers and shops.
