The Wurzels at Perkin Warbeck pub in Taunton


Legendary West Country folk band The Wurzels performed live at The Perkin Warbeck pub in Taunton before a crowd of 800 enthusiastic fans.

The performance took place following the 20/20 cricket match between Somerset and Gloucestershire, which took place close to the pub.

Tickets for the performance cost £5.00 each, £1.00 of which went to Wetherspoon's chosen charity CLIC Sargent.

In addition, 5p a bottle from sales of Thatchers Wurzel Me cider was also donated to a prostate cancer charity.

The band played for one hour and performed favourites, including I've got a Brand New Combine Harvester, I Am A Cider Drinker and Don't Look Back in Anger (see YouTube clip above).

The pub's manager, Gavin Coughlin (pictured above posing with the band), said: "It was a fantastic evening, and The Wurzels went down a storm, with many in the audience singing along to the well-known songs."
