Worcester Civic Society, with Worcester Cathedral, will unveil a blue plaque on College Green this Saturday, July 29 to commemorate Thomas Tomkins, organist and master of the choristers at Worcester Cathedral from 1596 until his death in 1656.

His house at 9 College Green has survived largely unchanged.
