Rain-damaged Holst Museum to reopen after £30k raised

A museum which honours the birthplace of the composter Gustav Holst is set to reopen after being severely damaged in torrential rain.

The Holst Birthplace Museum in Cheltenham has been closed since June, when water poured through the roof and badly damaged three rooms.

Volunteers have pulled together to raise £30,000 to repair the damage.

An invited audience has enjoyed a rare chance to hear Holst's original piano played in public to mark their achievement.
