Gustav Holst

Happy Birthday to Holst!  To celebrate Holst’s birthday (21st September 1874), our talented volunteer Angela Applegate has recorded a 40-minute, general interest biographical talk entitled “Music, Friendship and the Cotswold Hills: a life of Gustav Holst”, which includes a short ‘taster’ of the Museum and a brief introduction to the Gustav Holst Ramblers Way.

If you would like to view the talk, please send an email request to:

and we will email you a free link so that you can watch it on-demand.

But, because this is part of our Museum‘s fundraising efforts, we do hope that you will consider making a donation – no matter how small – to help us keep the Museum afloat during these difficult times.
