Rod Welford MP, in his preface to the publication ends with this last sentence: “Our arts and culture are our best global ambassadors. They tell the world that we are a place that values the arts. Bravura is a salute to the people who are spreading this message and will continue to do so in the future with spirited skill and flair”.
