Wessex Acoustic welcomes guests as well as members, but please note you all need to sign in as visitors to the Legion on the special Folk Club list which will be at the entrance to the function room.

Coming in 2021

19th February - Merry Hell & Gerry Colvin Band at Blandford Corn Exchange

We are delighted to have finally been able to rearrange our big double header concert with Merry Hell and Gerry Colvin Band.

These two acts have proved to be two of the most popular live acts of 2019, 2020, and probably 2021 too. They have had sell out concerts up and down the country.

Here is your chance to see them in Blandford.

Tickets may be purchased for £20 cash at the club concerts preceding the concert, or online at  .

Tickets may be available on the door on the night at £25 cash only.

Due to uncertainties concerning rearranging this concert, people who previously bought tickets via We Got Tickets should have had refunds, and will need to re-purchase.

Anyone who bought tickets at the club may exchange them for a new design ticket or we will honour old tickets. If you wish to have a refund, please let Kathy know (01202 732239 or text 07590 411515, or email using the link on the home page)
