Sir William Milner’s Music Collection with Hugh Parry

September 27 @ 11:30 am - 3:00 pm



This year we are celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the birth of Sir William Milner. Enjoy the pick of Sir William’s 78s introduced and described by Hugh Parry, aka the Sheik of Shellac.  We will hear music from the 1920s to the 1940s played on a crank-handled gramophone, just as Sir William would have heard it. A fascinating glimpse of Sir William’s personal tastes, and a rare opportunity to listen to early to mid-20th century music as most listeners experienced it in its time.

Coffee & biscuits on arrival, Lunch, and Afternoon Tea before departure are included.

There are spaces available for this event.  Please contact the office to make your booking.
