The event includes presentations using recordings.

2024 marks the centenary of the birth of one of the most prominent figures in the world of British Light Music, Ernest Tomlinson.
In addition to his undoubted prowess as a composer, arranger and conductor, Ernest was for many years the 'engine' of the Light Music Society and was responsible for rescuing a huge amount of sheet music, much of it literally from BBC skips !
Thanks to his sterling efforts, The Library of Light Music is today a thriving adjunct to the LMS in the capable hands of ET's daughter, Hilary Ashton, who will deliver an illustrated talk on the life and work of Ernest at the meeting.

Admission fee: 15 includes refreshments during the first interval
