Born 15th January 1893

name of Ivor Novello has become synonymous
with the golden era of the British stage
musical. In a remarkable career spanning
some forty years from his acclamation
as "the Welsh prodigy" when a school boy,
to his untimely death in 1951 he covered
virtually every aspect of the entertainment
business. He distinguished himself as an
actor-manager and the composer of some of
the most memorable musicals ever to grace
the British stage.
The Ivor Novello Appreciation Bureau was
founded to perpetuate the great man's memory
and to foster the appreciation of his prodigious
legacy of music, films and plays.
We stage concerts and shows throughout the
year, together with special days when Novello
devotees are able to meet.
We have an extensive archive of memorabilia;
used in exhibitions and displays, more information
