Wells, “A Great Music Place"

We all knew that Wells has a great reputation for music. This was again recognised in June when it was nominated as a “Great Music Place” by the national Make Music Day organisers. Make Music Day is an international celebration of music that happens on the 21st of June each year. A programme was put together involving Wells Cathedral, Wells Cathedral School, The Blue School, Strode College, Portway Music School and the Wells Rocks team. During the day, eight free events were held in the Cathedral, Quilter Hall and the Portway Annexe community hub. It was a fun day, with a performance by The Portraits being streamed by the national organisers prior to them heading off to Glastonbury for a series of gigs. A great start to Well’s involvement with this international festival, let’s build on it in 2023. Put MMD on the 21st of June in your calendar!
