Patrick Gale & Julian Lloyd Webber

Take Nothing With You

In conjunction with Chipping Campden Literature Festival


Patrick’s marvellous new novel, ‘Take nothing with you’, contains a character based on the legendary cello teacher Jane Cowan, with whom he studied. Jane’s most notable pupil was probably Steven Isserlis, who appears twice during week two of the festival. In the first part of this evening’s event Patrick will discuss with Julian Lloyd Webber, internationally known Cellist and principal of the Royal Birmingham

Conservatoire of Music, the vital importance and lifelong effect of great teaching. Not just for those who go on to become professionals but on all young people. After the interval Patrick will read from and talk about the novel in detail, with time for questions from the floor. Copies of Patrick’s book will be available to buy on the night and he will sign them after the event.


“A compelling story of how a passion for music can be a gateway for selfdiscovery.” Jonathan Dove, Composer

“So lovely to finish reading a book and to feel that the principal character had become a cherished friend. And also to read a musical novel by a real musician.” Steven Isserlis
