Marc Bolan School Of Music.
The school now has a brand new website at http://www.marcbolanschool.com/ with more details about the event I mentioned in our members section.
"The Marc Bolan Coffee House event is happening on Sunday February 8th 2015 at the Vera Fletcher Hall in Thames Ditton (Surrey) from 7pm until 10pm with live music from both singer/songwriter Jed Dmochowski and Tyrannosaurus Rex tribute artist, Tyrannosaurus Jed. There will also be a small auction and promotion for the bigger auction on behalf of the school, scheduled to take place during 2015."
Well its Christmas Eve already! Where did the last few weeks go? I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas. Thinking especially of those who are ill at the moment or who are spending the day alone.
