Glasswerk reports that the Music Industry Trusts Award charity dinner, now in its 19th year, was held on 2nd November at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel in aid of Nordoff Robbins and The BRIT Performing Arts & Technology School. It was attended by over 1000 guests from the UK music and entertainment industry including Sir George Martin, Michael Ball, Helena Bonham Carter and Rob Brydon.
As a first for this year, Spotify sponsored the MITS first digital auction, which included items from the legend himself, an original 1970’s 18k yellow gold with 19 diamonds ring from Tom Jones own collection and a very rare John Lennon and Yoko Ono naked statue donated by Kate Bush. The Music Industry Trusts’ Award has raised £4 million to date for its two charities, Nordoff Robbins and the BRIT Trust (which includes the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology)
From HomeGround “Five Years Ago October – December 1981”:
Well done for spotting the link, Peter – your memory is amazing. Pity there’s no photo for the statue, it sounds amazing.
I have a photo in the files – I think it was in a Record Collector article – but would need scanning.
