Herman Darewski was the musical director at Spa for nine summer seasons during the 1920s and 30s.  

He was a larger-than-life personality who in his day would have been well known to those with an interest in entertainment and light music.  

But as well as being a gregarious and creative frontman for the Spa, Darewski wrote songs for West End theatre and ran a music publishing business on London’s Charing Cross Road. 

Using the extensive collections of East Riding Service and material from Darewski enthusiast Mike Wilson, along with film footage and sound, this exhibition shines a light on Herman’s fascinating and fun world.
