Show of Hands will be live in Wells.


Audiences will be blown away by a music evening at one of Wells’ most stunning landmarks.

The Show Of Hands will travel to Wells Cathedral to fill its ancient building with the sound of music.

Joined by Miranda Sykes, the award-winning trio will bring together songwriting and music to create a captivating show.

Steve Knightley and Phil Beer have dominated the UK folk scene after selling out the Royal Albert Hall in London and now they have decided to take on a new challenge.

Steve said: “In 2010 we played a few landmark cathedrals and it just worked.

“There is something about the ambience, sanctity and rich history of a cathedral which lends itself perfectly to what we do.”

Show Of Hands will be at Wells Cathedral, in Cathedral Green, at 7.30pm on November 3.

Tickets, priced £17.50-£29.50, are available from the Cathedral website.
