About the event

A selection of Ivor Novello's best-loved songs and his doting mother to sing them – a simple enough idea …  except nothing can ever be simple when Madame Clara Novello Davies takes centre stage

NOVELLO & SON is a new play by Arnold Evans about Madame Clara Novello Davies (1861 -1943) and to those of her generation who never allowed such minor obstacles as class distinction, sex discrimination or the occasional world war to stand in their way.

The songs are by Clara’s son, Ivor Novello (1893-1951)

The show features Rosamund Shelley and her pianist Gavin Roberts
