A PROG IN THE PARK 2.0 UPDATE
If you were at the inaugural Prog in the Park (PITP) in April 2019, you may recall that there was so many great raffle and auction prizes. So many people had contacted myself and Brian, asking us “so how can I win that prize?” Etc.
When answering this question, in writing and verbally, I felt like a ‘controlled politician’. You see myself and Brian both had agreed that the only way that you can win any prize was quite simple, you had to be at PITP and either buy a ticket(s) for the raffle or take part in the raffle.
Thanks to Marillion manager Lucy Jordache, we auctioned off a guitar that was signed by the band. This raised a fair amount of money and the winner(s) of the auction were delighted with the winning this amazing prize.
The Fish era tribute band StillMarillion were the headliners of PITP, so this prize was well sought after. Here’s hoping that this signed guitar raises even more money than what the first one did.
Getting decent prizes to sell and raise funds for the cancer charity’s has become as almost a challenge in its self. Our PITP ‘tech guy’ Andrew McDonald sourced the guitars and he has also suggested if Marillion were able to sign it, so I got it sorted out. Andrew also has suggested Steve Hackett to sign the guitar being auctioned at: PROG IN THE PARK 2.0
I really am grateful to Andrew for sourcing the guitars, also grateful to Marillion and Steve Hackett signing these.
A massive thank you goes out to Alan Reed for asking Steve to do this for us and for being a genuine decent guy. So please come along
