MBSGB Day at St. Albans Organ Theatre
By Kevin McElhone

Musical Box Society Day at St. Albans Museum and Membership for 2018

I am writing as New Members Secretary for the Musical Box Society of
Great Britain (MBSGB) and inviting MMD readers to join us this year if
they have not done so before.  The first Journal / Magazine of 2018 is
due for publication in the next week and will be the first of four
issues sent to all members this year.

As a New Member you will also receive a computer disc of scans of the
first 40+ years of the Journal which must be worth the cost of the your
subscription alone which is £27 for those who live in the UK.  Prices
for all countries are on our website  http://www.mbsgb.org.uk/  and
payment may be made on-line.

The Annual General Meeting is held in the summer and includes a
members-only auction which is an eagerly anticipated highlight of the
day.

We hold two weekends away each year, in the spring and autumn, and have
four local-area groups in Hampshire, London and the Home Counties, the
Midlands and Worcestershire.  Some meetings take place in private homes
where the collection and accommodation is large, others meet in village
halls and also have private visits to nationally known musical museums.

The first such event this year is at St. Albans Organ Theatre in
Hertfordshire for the London and Home Counties Group on Saturday, 7th
April.  We will listen to instruments brought along by members for two
hours in the morning, will have lunch (included in the price) and then
listen to the comprehensive collection of instruments in the museum all
afternoon.  Ref. http://stalbansorgantheatre.org.uk/
