Senior Lecturer Chris Price has his research into the famous Canterbury Catch Club highlighted by BBC Arts. 

Chris Price, a Senior Lecturer in the School of Music and Performing Arts, is an expert on the famous  Canterbury Catch Club . He has curated a special exhibition that is to be held as part of Heritage Open Days at the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge on 12th September.

The Canterbury Catch Club lasted for almost a century, from 1779 to 1865. Every Wednesday evening from September to March, members enjoyed a thoroughly convivial evening of music to the accompaniment of mutton pies, ale and tobacco. And when the serious music was done, the evening would carry on for many hours more with the singing of catches – witty, often saucy songs popular with the English drinking classes for several centuries.

Chris's research into the Canterbury Catch Club has just been featured on the BBC Arts website.
