12:49pm Wednesday 4th June 2014

FIND out how the landscape of hill has inspired poets and musicians during an illustrated talk.

Donald Hunt welcomes Peter Avis to the Elgar Birthplace Museum, Lower Broadheath, near Worcester, to discuss the influence of Bredon Hill, near Evesham, during My Summertimes of Bredon on Tuesday, June 10.

Mr Avis has climbed the hill more than 150 times and his thoughts about its effect on the creative mind.

Chris Bennett, museum supervisor said: “Bredon Hill is a most beautiful area and Peter Avis is our ideal guide. Peter is a writer, broadcaster and singer, and knows just about every inch of the hill.

"His knowledge of the poets and composers who have been inspired by the area is second to none, and given his reputation as a raconteur this promises to be a most enlightening and entertaining presentation.”

The talk starts at 10.30am and tickets are £6, including interval refreshments.

Advance booking is advisable.
