Thank you to everyone who supported our production of Carmen in July 2015, either as performers, helpers or audience. We are deeply grateful to our loyal audiences who attended any of the events in the Theatre Tent and we've received such great feedback for the performances. As always, our thanks go to our President Mark Hamlin and our Benefactors, Friends and Patrons whose financial support has and continues to be vital to WO.

We received many positive comments and excellent feedback about Carmen, together with our special events with Claire Teal and Marcus Brigstocke staged in our huge circus-style tent. A newspaper reviewer summed up the whole project as ‘Bonkers but Brilliant’!

7th, 8th, 9th July 2016. Wedmore Opera presents "A Night at the Movies"
Picture the scene...the red carpet, our audience dressed to impress, paparazzi bulbs flashing as they arrive to drink Martinis, shaken not stirred. They are shown to their tables, think Ronnie Scott's, the lights go down, the show begins. A selection of movie operatic classics, some sung by our glamorous chorus, seething in sequins and Dinner jackets, some performed by soloists and smaller ensembles, draped across a grand piano. The songs will be linked with a narrative and a backdrop of movie stills. When the music stops, the food is served, the bar jumps into life. Hedonism is the name of the game! Featuring Richard Lennox at the grand piano.
Tickets at £25 per person (no concessions) are available from our Box Office on 01934 713271. There will be a priority booking period for Benefactors, Friends and Patrons. Or you can download a booking form here.
You can buy tickets online here after 31st May, when the Priority Booking Period ends:

Syrinx wind & piano ensemble Wedmore Village Hall on Friday, April 29th 2016
We had a wonderful fund-raising evening with wind & piano ensemble Syrinx who gave our guests a delightful range of music as well as demonstrating their supreme talent. Over 80 guests filled Wedmore Hall and were treated to a very filling 2 course meal.
We raised a considerable amount to help us fund our "Night at the Movies" event in July (see above). Thank you to all our patrons for supporting us!
