Cook’s Tours: Free event at 6.30pm

Christopher Cook, aptly described as ‘a walking encyclopaedia of the arts’, interviews the artists appearing in this year’s Festival. Today, Sir John Tomlinson will join him on stage at The Tabernacle to talk about his fascinating life in music.

Please note that Dame Felicity Lott, who was to have appeared at this event, is unfortunately indisposed and unable to be with us. We are grateful to Sir John for stepping in to lead this masterclass.
