Hampshire-based country music duo Ward Thomas have played for delegates heading to the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, nearly three months after they brought their awareness and busking tour to Cowes.

In August, the sisters played in Cowes High Street, as part of a series of impromptu busking gigs to raise money for eco charities and awareness in the run up to the summit.

This weekend, they have been playing for delegates leaving for Glasgow's COP26, which will see world leaders, politicians, negotiators, business chiefs and campaigners focus on negotiations aimed at driving action on climate change.

In August, Ward Thomas were Busking for the Planet in Cowes.

They have posted on Instagram to say: "Busking to the delegates leaving for COP 26 #buskingforourplanet."

During their trip to the Island in the summer Lizzy and Catherine Ward Thomas, who have previously played the Isle of Wight Festival, explained they wanted to do something positive to raise awareness about the challenges we face.

They have raised thousands of pounds, both through their Just Giving site (HERE) and from passers-by.

They also busked in Portsmouth, around Hampshire and beyond.


Tomorrow (Monday), Prime Minister Boris Johnson will host an opening ceremony at the summit, which involves nearly 120 heads of state.

Meanwhile, as previously reported by the County Press, The Queen will not be attending COP26 on the advice of her doctor.

Instead, the Prince of Wales will be in Glasgow.
