Veteran of stage and film to join afternoon concert
An actor whose roles have included Edward VII, Cardinal Wolsey, Mikhail Gorbachev, Martin Luther, Winston Churchill, Sir Thomas Beecham and Joseph Stalin will be playing a wholly imaginary figure when he appears on stage in Budleigh Salterton this week.
A veteran of television, theatre and film, Timothy West has joined forces with St Peter's Music for an afternoon of melodies and storytelling.
First appearing on stage in 1956, the actor's big break came in 1975 when he landed the role of Edward VII in a major BBC series.
The concert on October 20 is being held in conjunction with The English Piano Trio and titled The Danube: A Musical Journey.

Narrated by Timothy West, it tells the story of an imaginary journey down the great river by an imaginary person who has won the trip as a prize. The narrative will be interspersed with music by Haydn, Dvorak, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Bruch and Johann Strauss.
A Sunday afternoon concert is a new departure for St Peter's Music, and the organisers say they hope the new time may attract local, and not so local, music lovers not wishing to venture out in the darker evenings. Tickets, priced £12, include a cream tea. They are available via stpetersmusic.org.uk or on 01395-442275. Tickets on the door are £14, with students half price.
The Danube: A Musical Journey is at St Peter's Church in Budleigh Salterton on Sunday, October 20, at 3pm.
