This Page One puff misuses the word ‘centenary’. A centenary is a 100th anniversary. Using it in this way is a bit like saying ‘A birthday on from . . .’ It should say ‘A century after . . .’ or ‘A hundred years on from . . .’ If it is the actual centenary date, it could say ‘On the centenary of the great singer’s birth . . .’
