The May Festival at St Stephen’s Church in Bournemouth starts on Saturday 4 May with a focus on Percy Whitlock.
Whitlock’s biographer Malcolm Riley will be giving the festival lecture called Percy Whitlock at 110. This is followed by the always splendid tea and Exeter Cathedral choir singing evensong.
Percy Whitlock was first the church’s organist and then Municipal Organist who played in London churches and broadcast. His legacy includes the Song of Bournemouth and a familiar Mass setting.
The lecture (£7) starts at 2.45pm and will be a rare occasion.
