The Wurzels will be back in Bridgwater this winter for their annual Christmas Party 2019!

A fixture that’s fast becoming an unmissable pre-Xmas knees-up, the legendary four-piece will be performing at the Blake Hall on 14th December 2019.

As ever, the West Country folk-stars will be promising another rollicking night of festive cheer, goodwill and tunes just-the-ticket for washing down a mulled-cider or two.

Tickets are on sale now from See Tickets.

Signed to label heavyweights Columbia and EMI, The Wurzels continue to play over 100 sell-out shows every year, including the greatest festivals in the land! Their quintessentially West Country cover of Kaiser Chiefs’ ‘Ruby’ has been a massive show favourite of late, as well as their hilarious hip hop version of the ubiquitous hit ‘Combine Harvester’.

This bunch of haystack-headed, no-quite-so-young lads have long paved the way for Scrumpy n’ Western – a genre packed full of double entendre, mainstream parody and a comical folk style – the perfect accompaniment to cider drinking!

The band’s new single is the story of the infamous 1921 Aveling and Porter steam roller “Old Rosie” which was named after the Laurie Lee book “Cider with Rosie” and has been a permanent fixture at the Fair since it’s humble beginnings in 1969. The song tells the true story of the steam roller being found in a rusty state after years of neglect and its finder’s vision to one day restore the engine and bodywork to her former glory and of the proud day when his dream becomes a reality as she rolls up to the Greatest Steam Show on Earth in Dorset.

The band’s new video for ‘Old Rosie’ features the iconic engine based at the Westons Cider Mill in Much Marcle, Herefordshire. Old Rosie also gives its name to Westons leading authentic and traditional cloudy cider.  Watch here: YouTube

Celebrate Christmas a little early this year with a great night out in true mulled-cider quaffing style!

THE WURZELS WILL PLAY THE BLAKE HALL, BRIDGWATER – 14 DECEMBER 2019 with doors opening at 7.30pm
