Hilaire Belloc and Lucy Broadwood in word and song
Come and hear a celebration in words and music of two of our county’s most outstanding local personalities: the folk song collector, Lucy Broadwood, and the writer and poet, Hilaire Belloc. A choir made up of local people who have been part of a Lottery-funded project, exploring the lives of these two notable residents, will be singing some of the songs written by Hilaire Belloc and some of the folk songs collected by Lucy Broadwood at the end of the Victorian era.
There will also be readings of Hilaire Belloc’s prose and poetry, coupled with extracts from Lucy Broadwood’s diaries.
More information about the project and the songs can be found online.
