Details are just emerging of the National Celebrations to mark the 70th birthday of Cardinal Vincent Nichols.

A special commemorative edition of The Tablet will inaugurate the Year of Indulgence (a ‘Year of Indulgence’ was helpfully described by an Ecclestone Square spokesperson as ‘like a Year of Mercy only more so’).  The Year will end with a fancy-dress gay Mass at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Farm Street at which Sir Elton John will dedicate a special version of ‘Candle in the Wind’ to the Cardinal.

Copies of the festschrift volume ‘Pathways of Accompaniment and Human Flouriushing’ (ed. Tina Beattie, rrp £65) will be discounted on Amazon at a later date.
