Huge thank you to Penn Elcom for coming on board as a sponsor to create a special opportunity for our Fat Tuesday Club members. By providing a mini bus, Penn Elcom will be helping a group of youngsters travel to and spend the day at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London next week, where they will take part in music production workshops and learn more about the degree courses on offer. We couldn’t do this without you – and all our other sponsors throughout the year. Plus a huge thank you to ICMP for the opportunity!
