Getting the Party Started 24th July at 11.00am

Wells City Band are delighted to be starting up the programme of music on the Cathedral Green at 11.00am as part of the Wake Up Wells Community Day: the Big Picnic.

Wells City Band has been locked down during the pandemic and have only recently been allowed to rehearse; – socially distanced of course, with covers over the end of our instruments and adhering to all Covid regulations. So it will be super special to play for you all on the Cathedral Green.

Come into Wells between 11am and 4pm on Saturday 24th July and enjoy a village fete, entertainment, music, food and a range of information stalls, have-a-go experiences.

As well as Wells City Band there will be performances on the Green from the Glastonbury Male Voice Choir, ZZ Birmingham Blues Band, THE PORTRAITS and Wells Jazz Collective. Inside the Cathedral there will be music from Somerset Chamber Choir, Wells Amateur Bellringing Society, Drum Together. Plus much more and something for everyone.

Why not bring a picnic and make an afternoon of it?

The band will also be manning an information stall so pop along and have a chat with us!

This whole event has been organised by Wells Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace, the Project Factory, Rotary Club of Wells and Fresh and Good to bring you a special day in celebration of the relaxation of lockdown regulations.
