Warwick Words are again running their festival with a history theme. Last year’s event featured some excellent talks and this year’s programme looks just as good including a talk on WW1 in Warwick by our old favourite Graham Sutherland and a talk by Gillian White on Robert Dudley, Queen Elizabeth and the Kenilworth Entertainment of 1575. Dr Gillian White will be coming to us to talk about the Great Fire of Warwick in September .
I’m afraid that the National Trust have let us down and the planned re-opening of the Elgar Birthplace Museum in “late Spring” has been delayed until the autumn. This means, unfortunately, that the trip to Madresfield Court on 22nd June will not now be able to include a visit the Elgar Museum as well. We will instead be able to spend a little longer in Malvern after visiting Madresfield and perhaps return to Lapworth a little earlier.
This is disappointing but I hope it does not spoil the day; Madresfield alone should be well worth the visit.
