Feature

2018 sees The Blues Band Celebrate their 39th year together.

Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Tom McGuinness, Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher... Many of the Blues Band’s 21st century fans weren’t even born when these five virtuosos, already music industry veterans, decided to fly in the face of musical fashion in 1979 and form a band ‘just to play the blues’. No one could have predicted that, 36 years on, they’d still be dazzling audiences with their showmanship and virtuosity. About 20 albums and thousands of gigs later, they’ve earned a reputation around the world as one of the finest exponents of the blues tradition in all its forms. With this line-up, it’s hardly surprising.

Huntingdon Hall

Huntingdon Hall
Huntingdon Hall

Worcestershire's premier live music venue, staging an eclectic programme of live music, comedy & spoken word events.

The Countess of Huntingdon's Hall was built as a Calvinistic/Methodist chapel in 1773 by Selina, Countess of Huntingdon. The Chapel prospered until the second half of the twentieth century when congregations declined. The last service was held in 1976.

By this time the building was in a state of disrepair, and there was a move to demolish it. However, a determined group of Worcester people prevented this happening and, after ten years during which nearly £1 million was raised, the unique features of the chapel were repaired and restored.

Many of the original pews have been retained - with the addition of cushions, an indulgence which the Calvinistic/Methodist founders might not have approved of, but which does enhance the comfort of these beautiful examples of English church carpentry. A number of these cushions have fine needlework covers made by Worcestershire W.I. members.

By Road:
Follow signs to Worcester City Centre.
Huntington Hall is situated halfway along Deansway between the Cathedral and the River Severn Bridge, opposite Worcester College of Technology between Beatties and BHS in Crowngate Shopping Centre.
