Forget New Year, autumn means a fresh start for me, perhaps because it has still carries that association with the beginning of the school year. It feels like a good time to try something new, start a class or take up a hobby.
If you feel the same way Taunton Brewhouse has lots to offer. For those of an artistic bent there is painting, jewellery making, or writing. If you learnt a new instrument in lockdown why not bring it along and join our concert orchestra? If exercise is more your thing there are flamenco and ballet lessons for every ability. As well as picking up a new skill it is a great opportunity to meet people.
