"My introduction to classical music began at the age of ten. As an evacuee during the Second World War I found myself visiting the local cinema in a small South Devon town together with several friends. The film we were eagerly anticipating was made by Walt Disney. It was called ‘Fantasia’.

I sat utterly spellbound by the extraordinary images, of Zeus throwing thunderbolts at the peasants below from his chariot in the sky accompanied by the stirring strains of Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony. On leaving the cinema my friends were disgusted at the evening’s event. “What was it all about? It’s rubbish” they declared, but Disney’s vision of music and pictures had entered my psyche.

Some years later I tried to play Bach Fugues on the family upright piano. These attempts failed miserably. Later still I tried to master cornet, trombone and E Flat horn all with no success.

To the young players who have mastered their instruments my admiration is immense. Over the last decade my paintings have been increasingly inspired by the performances of the Trinity Laban students who have given us so much pleasure in their concerts at St Alfeges and other venues".

Illustrated talk by Terry Scales; The Rise and Fall of the Pool of London, 3 - 4pm on Sunday 12th May.  Venue; Made in Greenwich Gallery 324 Creek Road, Greenwich, SE10 9SW. Free. Terry Scales will share his early experiences as a stevedore in the once mighty Surrey Docks, and of life on the river when London was the greatest port in the world. It was known then as the ‘larder of England’.

Terry will illustrate the function of the many wharves from Tower Bridge to Woolwich, and question the accepted view of why the Pool of London declined so rapidly to the astonishment of many, who for generations had earned their living handling the rich assortment of cargos, and also of the thousands of office workers, who would pause on London Bridge to watch the cranes dip and sway.

After the talk there will be an opportunity to purchase signed prints depicting the last working wharves before the developers moved in.
