Wells-next-the-Sea Local Meeting


Future Events

Sam Peel

A play about the life of Sam Peel will be performed at Alderman Peel High School
on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 March at 19.30.  
Tickets are £5 and will be available from Wells T.I.C. and online.
The play has been written by Robin McLoughlin, who won the open competition,
and is based on the book by Susan Wild, Sam's granddaughter.  
The book is entitled 'a man who did different'.

Sam Peel was influential in bring the little town of Wells into the twentieth century
and the book tells of his long, hard battle to reform the terrible living conditions and
lack of proper education in the town.

Wells Meeting had an event a few years ago when Norman Lamb unveiled a plaque
which is now on the outside wall of the Meeting House and which says:
"a man of faith whose campaigns for social justice transformed lives of many……" 
SAM PEEL 1879 – 1964.

The plaque was made by the potter, Gunhilde Espelage from Made in Cley.

The play is a community effort and rehearsals are taking place in the Meeting House
every Tuesday and Thursday."
