Cedars Hall, Wells Cathedral School by Eric Parry Architects

[IMAGES + PLANS] Eric Parry Architects’ £4.5 million new music facility for Wells Cathedral School has been granted planning permission from Mendip District Council

Cedars Hall will provide flexible spaces for rehearsal, performing and recording. The building includes a recital hall that can accommodate an audience of over 340 people and offers professional quality facilities for the music school and the wider community.

The building will be set into the landscape of Cedars Field, the grounds to the Grade II*-listed Cedars House, and will be used for orchestral music, choir, amplified music, drama, dance and lectures.

Eric Parry said: ‘The progression of the scheme is a significant step towards adding to the school’s rich history. The new building will create fantastic, modern interior spaces whilst also making a confident architectural statement that is in tune with its surroundings.’

The practice has also designed a new sports pavilion on the site, offering Sport England standard accommodation for two teams and spectators adjacent to the county standard cricket pitch, as well as the restoration of the historic landscape of Cedars Field, which is also formed part of the application.
