John Barry honoured with Blue Plaque in Fulford
John Barry honoured with Blue Plaque in Fulford

On the 20th June The York Civic Trust honoured John with the award of a Blue Plaque, affixed to the wall of The Pavilion Hotel, Fulford. The hotel was formerly Fulford House, where John lived with his family from 1944 to 1958, at which point he departed for London and fame and fortune.

The plaque was unveiled by John's son, Jonpatrick, who had travelled from America with his mother, Laurie, for the ceremony. They were joined by several members of the Prendergast family, including John's niece and great-nieces, who still live locally.

David Fraser, chief executive of the trust, said: "John Barry lived in what became the Pavilion Hotel from his teens into his twenties.

John learned music from his mother Doris, who was a concert pianist, and from Francis Jackson, the organist at York Minster.

He went on to compose film music that made him world famous, and was globally important – and that all originated here in York."

Dr Fraser added that the Pavilion Hotel was delighted to have the plaque installed, which is easily visible to passers-by.
