THE NATIONAL HUMPHREY LYTTELTON COLLECTION
A HISTORIC SPECTACLE
The Jazz Centre UK is proud to hold the complete collection of British jazz’s most eloquent and well-remembered spokesman Humphrey Lyttelton. Our collection includes his Victorian roll-top writing desk and chair, the original copy of his ‘This is Your Life’ book, his instruments, his original master recordings, scrapbooks, private correspondence, his lifetime of achievements and music awards. The collections were donated by his son, Stephen Lyttelton and Band Manager Susan Da Costa for preservation within our Heritage Centre. His music awards were donated by Eton College.
