The Tuesday lunchtime recital series will take place each week starting on May 5 with the visit of renowned trumpeter Simon Desbruslais, accompanied by organist Clive Harries.

Simon Desbruslais came to international prominence with the first ever recording of Hertel’s Third Trumpet Concerto on the natural trumpet. This was followed by new trumpet concertos from John McCabe, Robert Saxton and Deborah Pritchard, all recorded for Signum Classics.

Simon has given live broadcasts and recordings of contemporary British music for BBC1 and BBC Radio 4 to millions of listeners worldwide. For more information, visit www.simondesbruslais.com

The schedule also includes recitals from popular British classical guitarist Jonathan Richards and organists Peter Swift and Jack Thompson.

Recitals begin at 12.45pm each Tuesday. Admission is free, although voluntary donations are welcome, with a suggested minimum donation of £3.
