The Wells Contemporary Music centre

A community creating,
performing & recording

Wells Rocks is a not-for-profit, voluntary organisation bringing musicians and anyone interested in music together to support music making at Wells City Council’s Contemporary Music Centre in the Portway Annexe. For more information contact

Wells Rocks is part of Battle of the Construction Industry Bands Limited, which also runs Construction Rocks. It is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.

We have now established three music rooms in the Portway Annexe’s Wells Contemporary Music Centre, which provide a range of flexible rehearsal facilities, at very reasonable rates. These are owned and managed by Wells City Council, through which bookings may be made.
We have also collaborated with the White Hart Hotel where events will be hosted featuring local musicians on the first Friday evening of each month, starting on the first of March.
