News Release

Ware Town Council – 31st January 2022

Showcase for Rock in the Priory 2022

Local musicians to play for a place in concert line-up

We have news that will be music to your ears! After two difficult years, live music fans and local talent can look forward to summer as Rock in the Priory is back and at its usual location of the Priory island on Sunday, July 17th, 2022.

Therein lies the opportunity for musicians in the area! Each year we stage a Rock in the Priory Showcase for artists who are keen to perform at the much-loved event. The auditions will take place at Southern Maltings on Sunday, April 10th, 2022 and all acts and artists of different genres are invited. From all participants, the committee will then select the best possible line up for Rock in the Priory. The general public are also welcome to come along on the day between 1pm and 6pm to enjoy an eclectic mix of music, no need to book.

Both band and acoustic sets will be up for grabs, but competition is always fierce.  For your chance to bag a set at the Showcase please send in links to your music to: rosalyn@waretowncouncil.gov.uk by Friday, March 18th March 2022.

Rock in the Priory is part of the Ware Festival, a wide range of events held in Ware throughout July; from a lively Carnival Parade and town fair, through to an Over 60s Party, the Riverside Real Ale Festival, Raft Race, Pavement Artist Competition and much more.

The Rock in the Priory line-up will be announced soon after the Showcase and tickets for the hottest show in town will then go on sale.
