Music at Morley has a long and distinguished history stretching back over 100 years to when Gustav Holst was Director of Music (1907-1924) and taking in Michael Tippett’s years in the same role (1940-1951), when concerts at Morley played an important part in keeping London’s musical life going during the war years. Ralph Vaughan Williams, Benjamin Britten, Peter Pears and many other leading names have taught or performed at Morley. Cornelius Cardew’s Scratch Orchestra broke new ground in experimental music-making during the 1970s, while the Morley Jazz orchestra and Big Band have been notable ensembles within their fields for over 30 years.’

‘Founded 1979 ... It takes its name from the fact that there were originally sixteen members ... The repertoire is wide-ranging and may be accompanied or a capella ... We sing at least three concerts a year. Two of them feature music from the classical choral repertoire, while the third is our light-hearted summer supper concert with a theme such as “the wild west”, “heavenly bodies” or “a night on the ocean wave”. This concert is very popular with families, and the audience sits at candle-lit tables, with wine and soft drinks served, and a buffet meal during the interval ... Over the years, Opus XVI has given concerts in a number of local churches and church halls, in West Dulwich, Streatham, Norbury and Herne Hill.’

‘The Friends of Ruskin Park have, since 1996, worked to ensure our park is well cared for and maintained, and has a planned and healthy future, preserving it for future generations ... The delightful Bandstand in the centre of the park is a simple wooden structure, less elaborate than the more ornate metal examples found in many other parks. After falling into disrepair, it was restored in 2006 with the help of the Friends and using capital regeneration funding from Lambeth Council. This allowed the Friends to hold the first of their popular annual summer fetes around the bandstand, which is also used for Easter and Christmas events and summer concerts.’
