WOWFest celebrates return to live music

The second edition of WOWFest: Wells Orchestral Weekend took place over the weekend of 17-18 July 2021, with a return to live performance and participation ‘bringing elation and relief to hundreds of musicians from across the UK’, according to the organisers.

Youth and amateur choirs, bands and orchestras took part in expert workshops and performed outdoor, Covid-friendly ‘picnic’ concerts to a highly appreciative audience in the gardens of The Bishop’s Palace in the cathedral city of Wells. 

The Festival was supported by a grant from the UK Culture Recovery Fund.
