Somerset Web Services has given a brand new look to the Bridgwater Carnival website with a full redesign developed at no charge to continue our support and sponsorship of the largest illuminated carnival in Europe.

The new website was launched with a joint presentation by the Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival committee and Somerset Web Services at the Carnival Inn, Bridgwater on Monday 16th September 2013.


Somerset Web Services designed and developed the previous Bridgwater carnival website which was launched on 30th April 2007. Since then the web industry has undergone major change and support for new technologies such as smartphones and tablets have transformed the way websites look and feel.

The online shop has been extended with many new features selling a wide range of carnival merchandise, including the new 2013 wristbands, the very popular carnival DVDs and tickets for the Bridgwater Carnival concerts in October.

Continuing our sponsorship of the carnival we have developed many state-of-the-art features including:

  • A modern eye-catching design
  • Home page slider transitions
  • Easier to use navigation system with fast hover access to all pages
  • Optimum displays for smartphones and tablets
  • Easier to use CMS to keep the website updated
  • Flipbook display of carnival programmes
  • New eCommerce shop with advanced functionality

Nigel Finch, MD of Somerset Web Services, said,
“Bridgwater carnival is such an important asset for Bridgwater and Somerset. It gives fantastic entertainment to over 100,000 people on the night, it is a way of life all year round for the gangs and clubs and generates a huge amount of business for many businesses locally and surprisingly much further afield, for example the coach companies in Yorkshire, Essex and North Wales.

“We are delighted to be involved to help market the carnival to a much wider audience and raise funds for the benefit of many local charities”.
