WAVERING DOWN HOUSE
2009 Diary Dates
Regrettably, following the recent death of the Trust's President Dennis Heymer, Chris Byrne has decided not to hold any more open days and concerts at Wavering Down House, as a mark of respect.
"Thank you" to all the people who have visited the house, attended our events and supported our open days over the last six years, to all the wonderful performers, and to all the helpers and volunteers who have made these events flow without a hitch.
The Trust will, however, continue and has several exciting projects coming up.
Trust chairman Chris Byrne owns the copyright of the work of Frankie Howerd. He is happy to give TV, radio and press interviews about life at the Wavering Down House. For more details, please call
