Further Information: In 1887, the young Ralph Vaughan Williams followed his brother Hervey in boarding at Charterhouse, located in Godalming among the Surrey Hills. How did this public school education mould a young man in the later years of the 19th century? What encouragement did Charterhouse offer to a pupil with musical aspirations? And how far did Charterhouse’s pastoral setting embed itself in Vaughan Williams’s mind? Ticket includes afternoon tea.
