3.00pm Festival Cream Tea Concert
NOVELLO AND SON
Rosamund Shelley – singer/actor

This dramatic musical presentation brings back to life one of Wales’s most remarkable musical legends. Madame Clara Novello Davies created a ground-breaking Ladies’ Choir which went on to enjoy the Patronage of Queen Victoria. Clara’s handsome son Ivor was the brilliant accompanist to this much-travelled ensemble – until, that is, the Great War came to propel him into the spotlight as Ivor Novello. Clara was slowly eclipsed and came to embody the immortal line “And Mother Came Too!”. Come and meet Madame in her prime and enjoy a delicious Cream Tea into the bargain.
£15 with cream tea included.
