Report: William Blake event

On Sunday 12 August, we had the honour of performing at the unveiling of a new tomb stone for the great poet, William Blake. The ceremony was organised by The Blake Society and took place at Bunhill Fields in London.

We performed a wonderful setting by Chris Williams called a golden string with text from Blake's epic poem, Jerusalem. The same words are inscribed on the new tombstone - a miraculous coincidence! 


We also had the pleasure of meeting Iron Maiden frontman, Bruce Dickson who has since described how we "managed to dull the maddening roar of London, and enchant the graveside audience of William Blake." 


Many thanks to photographer Elliott Franks for sharing his great pictures.
