Michael Weston King, Discovery Centre, Winchester, Friday July10th

Forwarded from out Friend Phil Oates, looks worth while to me!


I wonder if you could help publicise an event - it's a fundraiser for the
QE2 Activity Centre (a registered charity providing activity opportunities
for people with disabilities).  You might remember the Centre as the
setting for Jockstock, another fundraiser we organised a decade ago(!) with
John Roberts.  

This gig has echoes of Jockstock - Michael Weston King will be performing
songs by Jackie Leven and Townes van Zandt.  I would recommend it
wholeheartedly!  Tickets are 12 from the Discovery Centre box office -
here's a link

Money  raised is going towards a specific cause - we have been working with
the family of James Male to raise enough to buy a wheelchair accessible
motorboat.  James was one of the crew of the yacht Cheeki Rafiki, which was
lost in the Atlantic last summer.  The James Male memorial fund has already
bought us five new kayaks and we are very close to having enough for the
motorboat.  A successful evening on the 10th would get us over the line.

Discovery Centre, Winchester, Friday July 10th at 8pm (doors open at 7:30).
Guitarist Michael Weston King, accompanied by multi instrumentalist Mike
Cosgrave, will be performing an evening of songs by Jackie Leven and Townes
van Zandt, two of the finest songwriters of the last fifty years.  
The performance is being organised for the QE2 Activity Centre, which is
working with the family of Cheeki Rafiki sailor James Male to raise funds
to buy a wheelchair accessible motorboat, in memory of James.

Any help you can give in getting the word out would be very much appreciated

Phil Oates
