THE DAVENTRY QUARTET and MIRANDA M. PALMER (Soprano) ; BERTHA HAGART (Pianoforte)
THIS is another talk designed especially for
those who have not yet made up their minds where to spend their summer holidays. Other people may listen too with enjoyment and interest—the good advice they will hear will serve them for next year. Scandinavia is today's suggestion and E. Gee Nash , who knows those happy lands well, will state the case.
Today will be 'Breaking-up Day' - for the Children's Hour at all events. The celebrations will include: Songs with Choruses - led by Joseph Farrington. 'Packing for the River' and 'The Bathe' - from 'Three Men in a Boat' (Jerome K. Jerome). 'A (Holiday) Trip on Britain's Tiniest Engine', a Railway Talk by Cecil J. Allen and certain others.
Somewhere about now comes the day when schools close their doors for the summer holidays. By way of celebrating the occasion a series of suitable songs has been arranged for today's Hour with rousing choruses, and in order that there may be no delay in getting away for the holidays - in imagination, at all events - Mr. C.J. Allen will attend in order to conduct us personally on a railway journey of a very unusual kind. Mr. Allen is an eminent railway engineer who, for over a year, has prepared monthly talks on this, his own pet subject.
