Celebrating Sir Horace

Our current Special Exhibition:

On Bass, Sir Horace Gentleman
An exhibition dedicated to Coventry’s Horace Panter (A K A Sir Horace Gentleman)

A tribute to Horace’s massive contributions to 2-Tone Ska through The Specials, and his wider work as a Bluesman, a leading member of General Public, an artist, a writer, bassman, teacher… (but you’ll have to visit the exhibition to truly appreciate the man!)

Perhaps even get to experience the feel of a Gibson Thunderbird bass like the one Sir Horace played with The Specials, and see his “best” bass, handcrafted by Coventry luthier John Williams of Noise Works, Far Gosford Street.

As part of this exhibition, and continuing our series of Lottery-funded informal talks,  we thank Tony Wall (bass-player from Coventry band King) for his involving and revealing talk on Saturday, 2nd April.  His passion for the music he helped to create was abundant.

We look forward to seeing who will be our guest speaker at our next talk – watch this space.
