Momentum is growing for the Wells Contemporary Music Centre

Activity at Portway Annexe is gaining momentum, among the groups getting ready for its opening, the Wells Rocks team are preparing for the planned rehearsal facilities. It looks like it will be a busy but exciting run up to Easter.

In addition to establishing affordable rehearsal and teaching spaces, there is an ambition to support the creation of original, contemporary music in Wells. We are organising a conference for interested partie. Numerous ideas are being put forward and we want to see how these could be followed up to make the most of the new community-based music centre. The aim is to stimulate and create opportunities for musicians at all levels.

If you are in a band, or would like to be, let us know. Let’s start building the community. Tell us what you would like to do. We would like to help connect people with common interests. We can establish a virtual noticeboard on the website.

Ideas for the AV studio are also taking shape.  Video makers and choreographers are encouraged to get in touch so we can create an adaptable facility that has broad appeal.

If you are interested in any of the above, please contact us by emailing
