Message from CEO, Mark Coote

Mark-CooteSurge of support for Cedars Hall

This summer, construction of Cedars Hall - the new state-of-the-art performance venue on Cedars Field - will be completed. This is the culmination of a Foundation campaign to deliver for the school and for the community a much sought-after, purpose-built venue for world class music and a space for sharing creativity in all its guises with new audiences in ground-breaking ways.

Featuring a 350-seat auditorium, teaching and observation rooms and digital recording suite, this is the biggest, most ambitious development for generations in this school's long 1,107 year history and a project we have been proud to champion since the Foundation was founded in 2007.

With support from charitable trusts, a government grant and donations from Wells' friends and family, to date we've raised £8.6m towards this £9.4m campaign. So whether you've 'Taken Your Seat', given at a fundraising concert or event, or donated to name part of the building – you can still sponsor a column (1 of 4 left!), a practice room, or even the bar! – thank you!

We're inviting donations to help us reach our target and raise the final £800,000 until 31 December 2016. If you can help and you'd like to make a donation, or for more information, please do This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
