Tuesday 15th May 2018 – Proposed London trip

John Bodiley is leading a trip to London to a Gala evening celebrating the Willis organ in the RAH. There is a pre-concert talk by Tom Dagggett of St Paul’s Cathedral and Michael Broadway, custodian of the organ, and then a varied evening recital given by David Briggs,  Olivier Latry and Wayne Marshall. There are more details on the RAH website.

John envisages a minibus picking up from Taunton/Bridgwater, and travelling in the morning to allow people a chance to do something in the afternoon, before meeting up at the hall in the evening.  Berry’s have been asked for a quotation, and as always the more who travel the less expensive it becomes to hire the minibus.
Could all those interested in this fine trip please contact John directly by Friday 9th of March on:-
 01278 424612 or  jbodiley@hotmail.co.uk
