August 2015 - What's Occuring?

Another busy month in the Linham calendar has been this August 2015, featuring a wide variety of fun and exciting projects. From some fantastic private performances with the London City Big Band, Earthlights Boogie Band, Miguel Gorodi Big Band and the Ken Turner Band to creating Shrek the Musical in a week with 26 9-16yr olds, there has been little time to rest!

Here’s a fantastic picture of me as the Robin Hood MD of Shrek the Musical!

So what next?

The run up to Christmas (21 weeks I think now!) is starting and we’re back to school and there’s some new shows to MD, but there’s some exciting gigs afoot too, as listed below!

I’ve also had through the post a fantastic looking second album that has been two years in the making from the Mak Murtic Ensemble. I discovered it also makes a good hat.

The new Mimika album also doubles as a hat. @MakMurtic
