A NIGHT of festive cheer is coming to Bridgwater when the Wurzels return to Blake Hall for their annual Christmas party.

As ever, the West Country folk-stars will be promising another rollicking night of festive cheer, goodwill and tunes just-the-ticket for washing down a mulled-cider or two.

Signed to label heavyweights Columbia and EMI, The Wurzels continue to play over 100 sell-out shows every year.

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.

The band’s 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 song tells the true story of the steam roller being found in a rusty state after years of neglect and its finder’s vision to one day restore the engine and bodywork to her former glory. It talks of the proud day when his dream becomes a reality as she rolls up to the Greatest Steam Show on Earth in Dorset.

See The Wurzels at Blake Hall in Bridgwater on December 14 at 7:30pm. Tickets cost £15.
