One of the features of 2018 has been the number of venues we’ve played at for the first time. And we found ourselves at yet another one a couple of weekends ago when we arrived in Wells to play at the Bishop’s Palace (part of Wells Cathedral).
We tend to rely on Google maps these days to get us places, and it rarely lets us down; however, on this occasion it took us to the wrong side of the cathedral, which led to lots of driving around Wells (and getting stuck in its one way system) trying to find correct the way in!
Anyhoo, eventually we figured it out and were soon set up and soundchecking in another very echoey room! Thankfully, the guest helped absorb the sound once they piled in and onto the dance floor during the first dance (Angels, which amazingly we’ve never played live before).
Most guests stuck around for the first set, and after a quick sarnie and a pint we were back on and playing to a packed dance floor for a brilliant second set. We managed a few encores before letting the disco fill in until the strict 11.30 curfew. Thankfully it was a lot easier finding our way out of Wells that it was getting in…
