Orchestra from the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne Violin solos by TOM JENKINSORCHESTRA
At the pianoforte, Sydney Ffoulkes
On March 18 this year Tom Jenkins took over from Leslie Jeffries who recommended him so happily to the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne. Jenkins always seems to have had a flair for music. Every Christmas he was given a new toy fiddle until at the age of nine he began his music lessons. He remembers walking between two and three miles to -learn the violin-his people living in a small Yorkshire village where there was no teacher. At sixteen he got a job in a cinema at Thirsk at E2 10s. a week. After playing in various cinemas he joined the quartet at the Royal Baths, Harrogate ; the Hastings Municipal Orchestra, in which he worked his way up to being sub-leader ; the Celeste Octet ; the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne.
Such is his brilliant record, and he is only twenty-seven.

Sydney Grundy 's libretto to Sullivan's opera, Haddon Hall , is based on the legend that centres round that famous home, first of the Vernons and then of the Rutlands, in Derbyshire. The legend relates how Dorothy, second daughter of Sir George Vermin , was betrothed to Edward Stanley , one of the younger sons of the third Earl of Derby. Dorothy, however, was in love with John Manners , a younger son of the Earl of Rutland. On the eve of her wedding to Stanley, she slipped away from the ballroom, and eloped with her real lover. Grundy, however, has altered the legend, betrothing Dorothy to her cousin Rupert Vernon. A further touch of romance is given by introducing the rivalry between Royalists and Roundheads, for Rupert is a Round-head and Manners a Royalist.
