Devizes to Seize the Day for Wiltshire Climate Alliance

And that day is Saturday 4th February. Celebrated frontline folk band, Seize the Day, who specialise in conservational protest songs, and have supported many environmental campaigns across the world, will arrive at our Corn Exchange for a one-off gig fundraising for Wiltshire Climate Alliance……

Founded in 1997 by singer-songwriters Theo Simon and Shannon Smy, Seize the Day are renowned for revelling and inspiring the country’s environmental movement. They annually play Glastonbury Festival along with a variety of folk and mainstream UK festivals, and as stalwarts to grass-roots campaigners, they also play many benefit gigs and protest meetings, often with a solar-powered PA.

Wiltshire Climate Alliance are an umbrella campaign group, bringing together the various eco-groups from across Wiltshire, including Sustainable Devizes. Formed in 2019, when Wiltshire Council acknowledged that there was a climate emergency and set themselves a target to make Wiltshire carbon neutral by 2030, Wiltshire Climate Alliance set to ensure that Wiltshire Council was taking this commitment seriously.

In February 2020 they held a rally outside County Hall in Trowbridge, and have since created several active topic groups including energy, transport, land use and business engagement, organizing speakers and workshops, responses to consultations and planning applications, site visits and more.

Continuing to grow, the group welcome new members, partners and people who can help with our organization and administration.

An eight-piece ensemble, Seize the Day, fresh from an XR Christmas party at The Cellar Bar in Bath, I’m sure will bring a welcomed and refreshing show to Devizes Corn Exchange. Tickets are £15.00 or £7.50 for those who are struggling to pay any more, people can choose which to buy. Food will be available to purchase.
