Kathleen Ferrier was one of the best-loved British singers of the 20th century.

A native of Lancashire, the warm humanity of her interpretations endeared her to a worldwide public, whether performing the great works of Bach or a simple folksong; her early death robbed the world of a major musical personality.

2012 marks the centenary of Ferrier’s birth. As a special tribute, this exhibition of photographs, programmes and memorabilia celebrates her life and glittering achievements.
