Martin Jarvis with Simon Butteriss

'Martin Jarvis's recording of Richmal Crompton's Just William stories are works of genius.'  Independent

The much-loved British actor reads two short stories with incidental music composed and performed by Richard Sisson at the piano. These recitals have been recent sell-out successes at London’s King’s Place. Especially for Luton the programme will also contain new settings by Ronald Corp of poetry by P G Wodehouse, performed by the toast of the D’Oyly Carte Simon Butteriss.
