Just a quick heads-up with more details to follow.

Following the success of the 2015 Joint Day with the Musical Museum, 399 Brentford High St., Brentford, TW8 0DU., we have arranged to hold a second event on Saturday 19 March 2016.

The format will be similar to this years event, with the Phonofair taking place in the Concert Hall of the museum with live recitals on their cinema organ throughout the day and heavily discounted guided tours of the museum for all CLPGS members. We are also in the early stages of negotiating dicounted admission to the Steam Museum, located in the old water pumping station a hundred yards or so down the High Street from the museum.

Further details will be available towards the end of the year.

Keep the date free in your diaries

A quick reminder that the second join CLPGS phonofair and open day with the Musical Museum is this Saturday 19th March. Doors open at 10:00.

As well as the phonofair with dealers from across the county, there will also be displays and demonstrations of Phonographs and Gramophones throughout the day as well as regular recitals on the museum's cinema organ.

Dont forget to bring your discount voucher(distributed with the Winter 2015 edition of "For the Record") if you wish to take a tour of the museum.

Hope to see many of you there.

The joint Musical Museum/CLPGS open day and phonofair on 19th March was a great success. There were more traders and more vistors than last year and we had our own dedicated display area in one of the Museum's ground floor exhibition areas where those on the guided tour of the Museum would file through and we could demonstrate our machines.

The display of machines, although small, was probably one of the finest quality seen in the UK for many years; perhaps even since the Centenary exhibition in the Science Museum back in 1977.

A few pictures to whet your appetite:
