It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Janet McMullin died suddenly
during the weekend of September 19th 2015.
In spite of suffering increasingly from multiple sclerosis over the past ten years,
and in addition to a regular job in Oxford as assistant librarian at Christ Church,
she had been taking a full part in the running of the Festival,
both as secretary over the course of the year
and as a welcomer behind the front desk during the days of the Festival itself.
Indeed she took part in the annual general meeting on the Friday before her death,
when she showed the same humour and cheerfulness that she had displayed all along.
She is much missed, and our deepest sympathy is with her husband Peter
(one of our official accompanists) and her family.
The Abingdon Music Festival is affiliated to the British and
International Federation of Festivals for Music, Drama and
Abingdon Music Festival Association, Registered Charity no.
