The work selected is The Dream of Gerontius being performed in his home city .I include the flier and a photograph of Brian which we have had his permission to print.

I would be very grateful if you could do this for me and advertise the facility of obtaining tickets as we are only breaking even instead of raising money for next year .I have tickets to sell if one does not get through to the Gloucester box office.

Best Wishes
