Wells Contemporary Music Centre Opens

Wells has a new centre to build on its musical traditions. If you want to rehearse, there is now a room for you.  There are three spaces, with different uses (details on wellsrocks.org).  Bookings are managed by Alex for the City Council at the Portway Annexe. Costs are being kept low to make it accessible to all. 


Wells Contemporary Music Centre is already having an impact.  James Packer has launched his music school on Saturdays. Chrissie’s djembe drumming sessions are on Tuesday mornings and a 70s rock jam running on alternate Wednesday afternoons (next 8th June). Come and join in. We have a series of acoustic blues guitar workshops with Rick Payne to look forward to in the autumn.  Why not organise your own themed sessions or join one of musicologist Sacha Atkinson’s interesting and unusual workshops? 


Thank you to the City Council and the Wells Rocks volunteers who have made this possible. Let’s make the most of it!


The 21st of June will be Make Music Day. We are organising something special at the Portway Annexe and other locations around Wells during the day and the evening. Put it in your diary. This international celebration of music is relatively new to the UK, so you probably have not heard of it. Look out for more details on the wellsrocks.org website and social media nearer the date. It will be fun.
