Coronations, picnics, and walks in the country – just some of the things that the British do better than anyone else. And that goes for British composers too, as light-music maestro John Wilson sweeps us from Westminster Abbey to the Shropshire hills – with a quick detour to fairyland. Join us for rolling countryside, stirring pageantry and lashings of melody: it’s the musical equivalent of a cream tea!
