THE Wurzels’ feelgood concert to raise funds for Somerset’s flood victims gets in full swing at Bridgwater’s Palace nightclub tonight (Thursday).

The West Country favourites, below, fixed the date at the height of the flooding devastation and are looking forward to giving those affected a good time.

Accordion-playing pianist Tommy Banner urged County Gazette readers: “We’d love everyone to come along and support a very good cause.

“We’re doing it for everybody involved – not only people in their houses, but farmers and businesses – especially having only just ‘got back’ after last year’s floods.”

Every penny raised by Tommy, Pete, John and Sedge’s show will go to the Somerset Flood Relief Fund and the Agricultural Benevolent Fund Institution.

Mad Dog Mcrea, the Devonshire gypsy-jazz crew who know how to rouse a crowd, are in support.

Both the bands, their teams, the Palace, Bridgwater Carnival, plus Apr Media and Midnight Mango, are giving their services for free on the night.

Tickets cost £12.50 at www.midnightmango.co.uk, SeeTickets, TicketWeb and Gigantic.

The Palace doors open at 8pm.
