About the Concert

“I felt it was for this I had come: to wake at dawn on a hillside and look out on a world for which I had no words, to start at the beginning, speechless and without plan, in a place that still had no memories for me.”

A captivating weave of words and music combine to tell the extraordinary story of Gloucestershire-born writer Laurie Lee. Using excerpts from his much loved trilogy Cider with Rosie (1959), As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning (1969), and A Moment of War (1991) this performance chronicles his childhood growing up in the idyllic village of Slad, the journey he made on foot through the towns and countryside of 1930s England and his pilgrimage to Andalusia where he took part in the Spanish Civil War. Beautifully underpinned with music by Vaughan Williams, Elgar, Britten, Albinez, De Falla and Turina this unique presentation exquisitely brings to life the story of one of Gloucestershire’s most famous sons.

This is an open-air concert. Gates open one hour prior to performance, so bring a picnic or take advantage of the superb food and drink offerings at the Pavilion.

Actor Charlie Hamblett (Killing Eve, Around the World in Eighty Days, The Secret Agent) joins the Orchestra in the role of the young Laurie Lee.


Anton Lesser is an English actor. He is well known for his roles as Qyburn in the HBO series Game of Thrones, as Thomas More in Wolf Hall, as Harold Macmillan in The Crown, and as Chief Superintendent Bright in Endeavour.
