Another post about a true artist who has donated to the postcard sale, which, in case you have forgotten, is on 6 Dec in Passobello, 174 High Rd East Finchley N2 9AS.

Richard Lumsden is a man who can, it seems, do anything. An actor, perhaps best known for his role as Robert Ferrars in Sense and Sensibility, but also The Avengers, The First of the Summer of Wine, Chalk, Sugar Rush and a host of other films, TV and theatre productions. He is currently appearing in Our Town at the Almeida Theatre.

He is also a writer, with new scripts in production, a composer and a musician.

Added to this, he has very kindly drawn a postcard which is utterly charming and very special indeed. The person who finds his card will also receive a CD of a song composed and performed especially for us and completely unique.

I’m jealous. This card is definitely worth hunting down.

Many of Age UK Barnet’s clients are music lovers as well. Our music group meets monthly, driven to¬† and from our centres by our very kind and dedicated volunteers, to listen to live musicians or recorded music together and discuss their passion. About one third of the members of this group are blind and a fair number of them are skilled musicians in their own right, so they are a tough crowd to please.

Here are some pictures of the lovely cellist Dinah Beamish performing for her equally lovely audience. Dinah’s website is here
