Raffle in aid of our charity

We raised £694 for the Alzeheimer's Society

We were delighted to have three of the local branch volunteers at the Concert, with a wide range of leaflets and information.

After the concert they wrote
"We would like to thank you very much for the fantastic donation of £694.06, raised at your Guitar Workshop concert at St Nicholas Church Centre, Bedhampton on 9 December. It was a very enjoyable evening and I was pleased to see it so well supported. Where possible, please pass on our gratitude to all who participated for their support and generosity."


And for the first time in our Concert accounts we have some "action" photos!

With no explanation about what's going on, enjoy "Old Bill Jones" (1 MB mp3)

Our Leader has worked out who played the spurious note at the end, and in the interests of your future enjoyment of Workshop sounclips, be assured that he'll be taken outside and garroted with a D'Addario EJ46C composite G string as a warning to others.
