The director of the Royal Golf Club asked me to come for an interview. Turned out he wanted a series called Concerts on the Grass in the month of August every Saturday night.

On 26 July 2018 the Deia International Music Festival will host a special concert to honor Patrick. The concert includes trios by Coleridge-Taylor, Gilchrist, Torrandell and Patrick’s friend Carl Mansker, performed by Suzanne Bradbury (another of Patrick’s dear friends), Eilidh Martin and Tom Hankey.
The concert will begin at 9:00 PM and will be held at Son Marriog.
This is the 40th anniversary of the festival founded my father and Stephanie and will be a special night to remember.
Check out the Deia International Music Festival web site for details.
