Splinters are touring (Belgium) next year (2019) - FUNDRAISING TIME:

https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/paul-mcghee-4

The Splinters Street Band is a group of gifted and talented young musicians invited by Halton & Warrington Music Support Services.  They are led by Lucy Pankhurst and Paul McGhee (both professional brass players and composers).  They practice every Sunday morning for 3 hours and perform regularly around Cheshire and beyond.

One of the highlights of their performances was in 2016, when they were invited by the Brent Music Support Services to perform at Wembley Arena, which was a great success.

They also opened this year's Disability Awareness Day and also performed later on in the day.

Splinters plan to go on tour in Belgium in August 2019 which will require some serious fund-raising.  If you would like to get involved in fund-raising, please use the contact us option to let us know and we will get back to you with further details.


 

"Lord Alex's Musical Menagerie" has now been printed and login labels produced.  Published under ISBN 978-1-9996066-0-2 by Hoekstra Publishing, available through the eBay shop (lord_alex, what else...) @ £9.99 including p&p (mainland uk only).  There is also a quantity discount for the education sector ("Contact Us" for more info).

Alex also met Wouter, the illustrator, in Amsterdam on Saturday 2 June and they both signed a copy of the book in front of the Concertgebouw.  A copy has also been sent to the British Library for safekeeping.  Further copies have also been deposited in Oxford and Cambridge libraries and also one in Edinburgh and Dublin.

All books have now arrived safely from the printers (with thanks to Andrew Baker from Morthanveld and RiverDigital) - all we need to do now is stick all the login stickers in (thanks to Ted Waddington at Alan Northrop Ltd) and start selling...
