Foundation presents bust of James Mason

At the Lawrence Batley Theatre the Foundation presented a specially commissioned new bust of the legendary Hollywood star, James Mason. Huddersfield-born, Mason lived for 20 years in Corseaux, above Vevey.

The bust, by Swiss sculptor Denis Perret-Gentil, was unveiled by the Earl of Harewood and the celebrated Hollywood actor, Patrick Stewart, also Huddersfield-born.

The ceremony was followed by a reception, given by the Trustees of the Theatre, at which the new James Mason "Corseaux" vintage wine was served.
