Guests gathered to celebrate at a party in the Royal Pump Rooms in Leamington attended by representatives of many local music makers and promoters.

Sponsored by Warwick District Council Arts Development, the guests were welcomed by Jo Tucker from the steering group which produces the diary of musical events.

She explained how the Warwick District Music Promoters’ Forum had been started twenty years ago with support from Warwick District Council.

Malcolm Rowson then spoke about the anti-clash diary and how useful that could be to promoters.

Guests also heard from Mike King who talked about the distribution of Music To Your Ears and appealed to those present to spread the word about it and help widen its coverage.
