THE first concert to take place in the restored music room of Portsmouth’s oldest house had a historic theme.
Wymering Manor hosted an evening of music and poetry about the First World War.
Andrew Mason, a trustee of the manor, said he was thrilled to see the building being used for a concert, which he hoped would be the first of many.
He said: ‘It was wonderful to be able to use the music room for its intended purpose at last.’
Singers Ian and Georgie Lyon joined London pianist Tim Byram-Wigfield to perform works from composer Ralph Vaughan-Williams.
Portsmouth North MP Penny Mordaunt read poetry from the First World War.
Sue Wright spoke about a Lest We Forget remembrance project being run by Portsmouth City Council.
The concert was part of a programme of Lost Hour Pompey events held across the city to mark the transition to summer time.
