Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



On Saturday 5 February, guitarists from around Sedgemoor will gather at the CornHill in Bridgwater for a one-off performance of ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go’ as part of International Clash Day.

30 participants from around Sedgemoor have signed up to take part in the performance. Leading up to the event, participants have been hard at work learning the Clash classic, taking part in online workshops run by our director Scott O’Hara. Your Guitar Academy have also provided various instructional videos for the participants to use.

John, a Clashmob participant, says “I really could not turn down the chance of joining other guitarists, the great John D Revelator and his band in the Clashmob in the middle of Bridgwater on Saturday. In our rehearsal this week I was really chuffed to meet a fellow participant who was also at the iconic Rock against Racism event Clash played in 1978. I’m sure we will all have a blast on Saturday and I hope to be involved with others in future creative events and any Clashmob spinoffs.”

Everyone is welcome to attend the free performance at the CornHill alongside the Blake Statue on Saturday at 12.30pm. The event will feature a 30-minute set by one of our Front Garden Music Festival 2021 artists John D Revelator and his band. The Clashmob participants will join in halfway through with a flash mob style entrance for their performance of ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go’. The event is free to attend with no booking required.

Join us at the Cornhill for 12.30 this Saturday to watch the performance on YouTube shortly after. This project has been made possible by the support of Arts Council England, Bridgwater Town Council, Sedgemoor District Council, Your Guitar Academy and the Clash themselves.
