Following an incredibly difficult year for the music industry in general, Worcester’s music scene has been hit hard. With key events such as Worcester Music Festival not being able to go ahead and venues, such as The Marrs Bar having to remain closed there has been little live music for people of the city to enjoy.
Music Café Bar, Paradiddles, ran a successful short run of events in the summer, with many open mic nights also continuing to operate, however there’s been a real hole of full production live music shows left behind.
Now, following a second national lockdown, Drummonds, a long standing live music venue in Worcester has stepped up to the mark. Hosting a series of five, socially distanced, limited capacity full production shows. Featuring an array of Worcester’s finest local talent, the series is a hopeful light at the end of the tunnel for the local music scene.
In a series titled, ‘Reunited’, the city will have the chance to fully reunite themselves with shows in a COVID-safe environment. Audiences will remain seated throughout the performances, on socially distanced tables of 2, 3, 4 and 6, of which whilst Worcester remains in tier 2, will have to be occupied by singular households/support bubbles.
Audience members will also be able to purchase alcohol without a meal, thanks to the latest change in legislation for live music events.
Samantha Daly, from Worcester promotions brand Uncover, says “It’s great to have some live music to look forward to, many of the local acts haven’t had chance to perform this year, so fantastic that they will get the opportunity to after such a tough year. It’s also great to be able to partner with Birmingham Promoters on this series, bringing such a well-established promotions company to Worcester is very exciting.”
Carlo Solazzo, of Birmingham Promoters, says “It’s been a tough year for everyone, so to be able to get these five events in before the end of the year is a fantastic way for everyone to come together (in a socially distanced way!) and end the year with some positivity and great music! Worcester has some amazing talent and we are thrilled to be able to support its growth and development”

The Purple Shades, Chevy Chase Stole My Wife, Hannah Law
