Wells Cathedral School is located in the beautiful City of Wells surrounded by the Somerset countryside.

Wells Cathedral School is a versatile venue with many accessible spaces and can host a wide variety of events in beautiful surroundings. The school's concert and arts venue, Cedars Hall, for example, is a recent addition to their facilities. Cedars Hall provides the capacity for audiences of 350 in its main recital hall named Eavis Hall after Old Wellensian Michael Eavis, CBE, founder of the Glastonbury Festival. Eavis Hall is a flexible and modern performance space accommodating an orchestra of 60 performers and an audience of 250, with other configurations possible through adaptation of seating and platforms. Whilst the hall’s award-winning design was devised to give chamber musicians the very best acoustic experience, the flexibility of the technical specification means that this venue is accessible for performers of every discipline – for amplified music, dance, films, drama and lectures; the hall with its large foyer is also the perfect venue for formal dinners or receptions
