Boathouse Bulletin – October

29 September 2014

The final month of the season for 2014 has come around so quickly and it really does not seem like 7 months since we gave you the line up back in April.

So we have another full line up of live acts to bring you to round off this year.

MATT SUMMER will be here on the first Saturday of the month, he’s always a popular vocalist.

MORPHEUS will make their 2nd visit to us this year after we had to postpone their August visit. They are a male/female vocal duo.

MAT ROBERTS will make his final visit of the season and bring his guitar and his voice and sing whatever the audience on the night want on Tuesday 21st.

We have a very busy final week of the month which is HALF TERM so make sure you see STATION ROAD and the brilliant MR. EERIUS over the final weekend and then on the last day of the season we will be throwing our doors open to the public for our HALLOWEEN PARTY NIGHT which features a massive 2 hours of kids dances and games and then female vocalist LINDSEY COLLARD will take to the stage.

During half term we will also have a programme of extra activities including the popular PUMPKIN WORKSHOP.

Well Worth a Visit…

22 September 2014

ls-wells2Just under an hour away from Lakeside is Wells, the smallest city in England, a vibrant city bustling with markets, pubs and shops. It is also home to some fabulous examples of medieval architecture including Wells Cathedral, the moated Bishops Palace and Vicar’s Close.

The focal point of Wells for many people is Wells Cathedral, which is arguably one of the most beautiful medieval cathedrals in England. Built between 1180 and 1306 and dedicated to St Andrew the Apostle, it is the seat of the Bishop of Bath & Wells.

Entrance to the Cathedral is free but you are asked to make a donation to the running costs, suggested donations are listed below.

Adults £6.00 each
Senior Citizens £4.00 each
Students and children £3.00 each

Opening Times
April – September: 7am to 7pm
October – March: 7am to 6pm

Lasting about an hour, regular scheduled tours of the Cathedral are highly recommended and are available free of charge with one of the volunteer guides. Simply gather by the “Tour” sign in the nave of the Cathedral before a scheduled tour is about to begin.

Alternatively if you just want to have a wander around it might be worth taking some binoculars to view the stunning original medieval stained glass windows with the oldest surviving from the late 13th century – please visit their website for dates and times of the stained glass window walk tours.

Other noteable features include the Scissor Arches, which were built in the 14th century to support the sinking foundations, the original medieval 24 hour clock with mechanical figures, Chapter House, the octagonal chamber where the Cathedral clergy congregate to discuss cathedral business and finally as pictured above the magnificent West front which still retains over 300 original medieval statues.

The Cathedral shop and box office sells an interesting variety of books, cards, CD’s, pictures, chocolates, tapestries and jewellery and is worth a visit.

The Cathedral Cafe (open 10-5pm Mon-Sat and 11-4.30pm Sun and bank holidays) serves morning coffee and afternoon tea complimented with a delicious array of scones, pastries and cakes. If you are after something more substantial choose from a selection of light and hearty bites, they also offer great meal deals for the children. Please note – the cafe and toilet areas will be closed w/c 20th October 2014 as a new lift is being installed.

The Cathedral has morning prayer and holy communion services every day along with special services, concerts, talks and lectures. Please visit their website for further details.

Boathouse Bulletin – September

The summer weeks are over and we head into the last two months of this year’s season. Fingers crossed that September brings the early autumn sunshine with it along with another month of live entertainment.

MUSIC BINGO and THE BIG QUIZ will return after their summer break so Sunday night is the night to test your knowledge. GIVE ME 10 will also return to it’s Wednesday night slot to give you a chance to be a cash winner in our popular team game show.

We also welcome back some brilliant performers from this year including DANIEL JAMES from the Strictly Come Dancing Tour, MAT ROBERTS the popular guitar vocalist who plays a totally different set each time he takes to the stage.
