Fairport Convention has been entertaining music lovers for over half a century.
During that time the band that launched British folk-rock has seen many changes. But one thing has remained the same - Fairport’s passion for performance.
Their concert at Wells Cathedral during the Festival of the Moon presents a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new including their latest album Shuffle and Go, which was released in 2020.
Little Pickles Markets are coming to Wells for the first time.
A great chance to de-clutter and make some money and sell your pre-loved nearly new, baby and toddler items or come along as a buyer if your little pickle needs some new clothes, toys or accessories.
The market is being held at the Wells Blue School Sports Centre.
