The Wurzels are taking to the stage in support of Glastonbury Abbey's 'Rescue our Ruins' appeal

Comments (2)

Somerset legends The Wurzels are getting ready to rock the ruins at Glastonbury Abbey next June.

The Wurzels, famous for parody hits such as Combine Harvester, Cider Drinker and Morning Glory, will take to the stage on 14 June 2013, in a fundraising gig in aid of the Rescue Our Ruins Appeal.

Tickets have gone on sale today (December 7) and could be the perfect Christmas present for someone who's pure Somerset through and through.

Tommy Banner, Accordian Player for the Wurzels, said: "Glastonbury Abbey is part of our heritage and a Somerset landmark. It is a beautiful setting."

James Stone, Events co-ordinator for the Abbey, is chuffed that The Wurzels are backing their appeal.

He said: "We are delighted to have The Wurzels playing at the Abbey and for the band to be backing the appeal.

"All profits from the gig will be for the fund-raising which is for vital conservation work for the Abbot's Kitchen, Lady Chapel, Crypt and Galilee and the North Wall."

Janet Bell, acting director at the Abbey, said: "We are sure it will be a great night out and it is wonderful to have Somerset legends supporting Somerset's heritage in this way."

Tickets cost £12 from the Abbey Shop in advance or £15 on the gate. Full members of the newly launched Membership Scheme, Friends of Glastonbury Abbey, will receive a £2 discount.

    What? No mention of the supporting act, 'Minor Works Unit?!' They are a fantastic band of 5 very talented musicians who play to hilarious lyrics! Look them up on iTunes and then come along to this gig, you wont be disappointed!
