OUR FRIEND HENRY
Henry Charles Lutman
24th February 1948 – 16th June 2022
Just before the Summer Festival our dear friend Henry suddenly passed away –
a sad loss to Loraine, his family and the community.
Henry was a great character – friendly, helpful, kind, humane, humorous, energetic, creative, a problem solver, team player – a man with a unique range of talents – artist, designer, musician, organiser. Together, Henry and Loraine were an amazing partnership with their ‘can do’ attitude – examples abound – busking to raise money for good causes and of course their invaluable work for the Caerleon Festival.
To recall some of Henry’s contributions to the Festival is to remember a remarkable man.
Musician with the Dai Bach Band (with Loraine);
Artist/Designer – Designer of the Festival Programme & posters;
Organiser of The Caerleon Festival Christmas Farmers’ Market and event caterer (with Loraine);
