AN eye for showbusiness is never far from the family which is about to celebrate the 25th anniversary of opening Wells Film Centre – especially when it comes to a wedding! Cinema founder Derek Cooper arranged for the Wells Carnival Queen coach to take daughter Becky to Wookey Hole Church where she married Aaron Collett. Becky, who was twice Wells carnival queen, is the manager of the cinema, now run by sister Sally. They then travelled by the coach to the Swan Hotel in Wells for the reception.

Reindeer on the road again in Wells

REINDEER will be returning to the streets of Wells in December for the 11th annual Christmas parade. Last year’s event raised more than £2,500 for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and the Rotary Club of Wells, which organises the celebration, hopes to make this year even more successful. The parade, on Sunday, December 3rd, will open at 10.50am and there will be music by bands and choirs along with seasonal stalls, rides and other amusements. The parade itself will begin at midday.

Palace holds Christmas market

FOLLOWING the phenomenal success of last year’s event, The Bishop’s Palace in Wells will again be helping you to get your Christmas shopping started in style with their inspirational Christmas Artisan Markets. Taking place from Friday November 10th to Sunday November 12th, there will be a range of over 30 stalls of local, hand-made crafts and products to browse. They will include original art works, decoupage, Christmas decorations, chocolates, toys and games, quilting, embroidery, jewellery, woodwork, ceramics, stained glass, home furnishings, candles and many more. Soak up the festive atmosphere around this glorious medieval site, with seasonal food and drink, and music in the chapel. Tickets are available at a reduced price (£6 adult, children five-18 £3, under-fives and palace members free) and are available from the palace shop, by telephone 01749 988 111 or online
