Echoes of Mary – a Celebration


So many have said they’re hoping to attend Echoes of Mary that we’ve hired a hall for that quaintly named event the Funeral Tea.

No. not the Drill Hall where Mary and Karen Tovell ran those famous storytelling workshops; nor the London Welsh Centre scene of some notable performances by Mary and, of course, home of the London Welsh Chorale the source of so much happy singing for us both under the direction of Kenneth Bowen.

We’ve been fortunate in securing the Portico at 23a Knights Hill, Norwood, London SE27 0HS, just a few minutes walk from the Crematorium. It has a nice big main hall with a piano and pa system.

This means we’ll be able to continue with singing and stories and sharing memories of Mary . And there will be tea and cakes and there will certainly be something sparkling as well.

I’ll be posting the webcast details next week.

But, meanwhile  as a reminder, the first part of Echoes of Mary will be at the West Norwood Crematorium, Norwood Rd, Norwood, London SE27 9JU on Tuesday 12th July starting at 2.30 pm.

    I only ever had the privilege of meeting Mary on this blog, but she endeared herself to me and I enjoyed reading of her reflections and exploits, especially in Kenya and South Africa.
    May she rest in peace,

    My sadness to learn of her passing and my gratitude to Mary and Karen whose story making workshops at the Drill Hall in London stayed with me for many years after… I feel lucky to have known you , albeit briefly, Mary.
    Rest in peace,
