The busker who brought a Sunday afternoon service at Bath Abbey to a halt has given his side of the story to the Virtual Museum of Bath.

It was his music which sent 200 parishioners and visitors home after the Rector decided it was too loud an interference to allow the Evensong worship to continue.

The Abbey and Bath and North East Somerset Council now think something should be done to regulate the level of amplification around the Abbey.

 

An interview with the Rector is coming soon but here’s the start of Jack’s story. Just click on the arrow to start the video.

 

 

Shortly after recording this interview with the Virtual Museum, Jack called me over again and said he wanted to add some more information about the Sunday service incident. His opinions are his own and not those of this Museum.

I was also able to catch up with the Rector of Bath Abbey – so do stay with this interview as the Rector is on here also! Just click on the arrow to start the video.
