For many years the Wells Cathedral Oratorio Society has given two concerts a year. From the Autumn of 2013 the Society gives THREE concerts each year which include an annual performance of Handel's MESSIAH in December. The other two concerts are usually in early November and late March.

Along with this change the Society discontinued the Patrons scheme and replaced it with a new FRIENDS scheme, having looked at how other societies around the country operate. Briefly, the features of the new FRIENDS scheme are:

  • Priority booking of up to 4 prime Nave tickets for each concert
  • Name/s of Friends printed in concert programmes
  • Annual Newsletter
  • Annual subscription of £24

All of us in the Society hope you will continue (or begin) your support as a FRIEND of Wells Cathedral Oratorio Society and look forward to seeing you at our concerts.

Twice a year you will receive a Priority Booking form for concert tickets. This will be in March for the November and December concerts and in September for the Spring concert.

With our thanks and best wishes
