Each year, in early January, the chairs are removed from the Nave of Wells Cathedral. This allows the congregation and visitors to appreciate the medieval Nave in its original state – without furniture.

During the annual Promenade Concerts, the audience can walk around and enjoy not just the space in the Nave, but also the Quire, Transepts and Side Chapels. Some choose to wander the building, whereas others will find a special and unique place to sit where they can enjoy the performance.
