We are a conservation charity, working to look after special places for everyone.


 I am very passionate about music and want to keep it alive across National Trust places in the South West, this is why I'm embarking on this challenging adventure.  At each place I will play one of my favourite pieces, Albinoni's Adagio for strings.

All donations will go towards the upkeep and conservation of musical instruments in National Trust properties across the south west.

Music has been part of my life since I was a child, I became a chorister at Christchurch Cathedral choir school, Oxford at the age of 8 and went on to become a lay clerk at Bath Abbey after studying music at university in Bath. Music is part of my life still and since my retirement, I regularly play pianos and organs at a number of National Trust places.

I have a particular attachment to Knightshayes as I played the piano there at the age of 11, 50 years ago. 

Throughout September I will be playing at:  Greenway (13th am), Coleton Fishacre (13th pm), Killerton (14th am), Knightshayes (14th pm), Arlington Court (16th am), Dunster (16th pm), Tyntesfield (17th all day),  Max Gate (18th am), Kingston Lacy (18th pm), Trelissick (19th all day), Cotehele (20th am), Buckland Abbey (20th pm), Castle Drogo (21st am), Saltram (21st pm), Stourhead (22nd all day), St Michael's Mount (26th).

I'll be playing from around 11am  each morning and afternoon playing will commence at about 2.30pm  and on some dates I'll be joined by an instrumentalist.

I'd love to see you there.
