A series of concerts will be held in and around Fittleworth and Stopham commemorating Sir Edward Elgar’s stay at Brinkwells on the Stopham Estate between 1917 and 1919. The Elgars spent two years enjoying the peace of West Sussex as Sir Edward found living in wartime London a trial both to his health and his creativity. It was during his stay in this idyllic location that he wrote some of his finest music, including the wonderful Cello Concerto.
