Ian will introduce a variety of birds and Elizabeth will match the birds with songs. There will be everything from Handel, As When the Dove from Acis and Galatea, to Vera Lynne and bluebirds over the cliffs of Dover.

Ian 'Bertie' Batty is a septuagenarian whose passion is bird watching. A member of RSPB for over 40 years he doesn't consider himself a twitcher. Ian prefers to sit and watch a bird, look at the habitat, study the bird call, take a photo and share his knowledge of birds with others. Ian's wife Val is a client of SRSB and both are active supporters of our charity.

Elizabeth Charlesworth, soprano, studied music at Newcastle and Sheffield universities. Early singing studies were with John Dethick, then Jean Allister. Elizabeth has performed in masterclasses with Paul Hamburger in Oxford and Vienna.

John Bashforth learned the organ with Philip Marshall at Lincoln Cathedral and Hubert Stafford at Sheffield Cathedral. He is musical director of the St John's Singers and organist at St John the Baptist Church at Cudworth.
