Event details

The Wedding Present commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of their pivotal long-player, 'Seamonsters'.

Recorded in just twelve days during 1991, the record reached No.13 in the Official Album Chart, hailed by many as a true classic.

The Wedding Present have had eighteen UK Top 40 hit singles, not bad for a band that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry’s game.

Back in 1985 David Lewis Gedge boarded a National Express coach in London with 500 records packed into a pair of his mother’s suitcases. In this fashion, the debut single 'Go Out and Get 'Em Boy!' was collected from the pressing plant, delivered to the distribution company, and The Wedding Present was born.

That pioneering spirit has been at the core of the band’s philosophy ever since. From their 'George Best' album, branded "an unmitigated delight" by NME, the band has charted an appealing, if often eccentric, course of its very own.

“The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the rock ‘n’ roll era. You may dispute this, but I’m right and you’re wrong!” - John Peel.
