The Wurzels

THE WURZELS at The Fleece Sun 1 April 2018 from 07:30 pm

The Wurzels are back in Bristol for another guaranteed sell out show!  

Celebrate the springtime in true cider-quaffing style!

This original boy band 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’

A 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 bands 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 new video 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 

Plus the much loved in Bristol, Skimmity Hitchers who having risen from the cider soaked floors of Dorset's back street boozers, now roam the full girth of the West Country and beyond. Bringing their dry and fruity blend of Scrumpy & Western music to venues, festivals and fairs, these scrumpy swillin' reprobates appeal to young and old, and everyone from folkies to cider punks, beardy badgers to shifty blaggers. The 'Hitchers blend razor sharp parodies and original material with a raucous stage show, spontaneous audience interaction, cheeky banter and general cider shenanigans
Notes: All ages (under 16s must be with an adult)
Tickets: £22.00   Sorry, we're sold out


The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email for more details.
