Slapped wrists from Facebook:)

Today Pete is celebrating his birthday, whilst Steve R returns home from Mexico, Mark is programming keyboards and Ian and h are busy with watching concert films that need to be approved!

We all start back on Thursday when we head deep into rehearsing for the Marillion Weekends. Three have sold out but there are still tickets available for Poland and Montreal so come join the party.

3rd January 2019 - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Folks!

First of all, MANY THANKS to all who donated to Sounds of Change enabling the campaign to reach beyond €5000 (€4000 was the total originally hoped for).

This money will be doubled to €10,000 to provide training for teachers in Bethlehem with music therapy techniques.

We never doubted you but we are nonetheless grateful. If you haven’t donated, there’s still time and any amount helps, no matter how small - please visit

www.onepercentclub.com/en/projects/muziek-in-bethlehem

for details.

Could we also bring your attention to another little thing going on into the new year?

It won’t cost you any money!

Would you please visit

awards.classicboat.co.uk/restored-powered-vessel-under-40ft-12-2m/

and vote for our friend Bill Smith’s Bluebird K7 for The Classic Boat Award 2019 (restored Powered Vessel under 40 ft).

As I’m sure you know this is the very machine Donald Campbell broke the world water speed record with before dying tragically on Coniston Water, Lake District in 1967.

Bill Smith, having heard Marillion’s song “Out of this World” spent some years searching for and successfully finding the Bluebird K7 and Donald’s remains at the bottom of the lake in 2001.

Bill spent more than a decade restoring Bluebird to fully-operational condition and successfully returned her to the water on the Isle of Bute in 2018 where she was run up to a speed of 157 mph.

Please vote for the Bluebird K7 as Classic Boat Magazine’s award for the outstanding restoration of a powered water vessel.

Let’s win an award for the Bluebird and for Bill Smith!

Is that actually a part of K7 in the photo ?

That's a very interesting piece of tin, was it returned to K7?

Anyone know why it took 34 years to look for the boat? It couldn't have been that deep in the lake, could it?

Done 👍 I‘ve read about it last year... fascinating story! But the boat was also a grave, because Campbell‘s body was never found...

Voted - for anyone who wants a snapshot of Donald Campbell and Bluebird record then I can recommend the film Across the Lake - with Anthony Hopkins playing Campbell.

Thinking of Out of this World.. Things Fly.. Goosebumps

I voted. I remember that song and the story behind it. My band actually opened for Marillion at The Chance in Poughkeepsie back in the late 90s. You guys were so nice to us. I loved meeting Steve Hogarth. I was starstruck, and he saw that I was, so he hugged me! Pete was very cool. He actually complimented my bass playing. I was on Cloud 9! Thank you guys!

Yes I'm voting bought them breakfast and had a lovely time chatting xx

I had never heard of Bluebird until recently but i was lucky enough to see it on the water in my hometown of Bute. We were very lucky to have it on our lovely island. The Marillion link made it even more special.

So many memories with my late husband Carl Spencer on the K7 recovery project! Our true, great friend, Bill & The Bluebird project team, so deserve this award! Especially making sure The Bluebird flew again this year! Proud to be British!

I have just voted. I also watched Bluebird: The Afterlife on Sky News still available to watch On Demand

That sweet myrrh was a nice boat but since i didn't hear any music when seeing her, the bluebird got my vote. Amazing story, amazing people, amazing song. Well done!

Lucky enough to get close to her and watch her run, while listening to Out Of This World on my headphones. Away to vote

Happy New Year and voted 👍

Beste wishes all at Marillion. Done my vote.

Done. Bill certainly deserves it

Done. So proud of my fellow Geordie. Best of luck Bill

All done.... Looking ahead to April now 😊 xx

Dave Hurd.. how bizarre?? Only talking about this last night 👍🏻

Bluebird is such stuff as dream are made of:who dares call it a boat?

Happy New Year guys. You're awesome. I?ve sent my vote for Bluebird K7. 👍

Happy New Year dear s... ! Voting done! X

Done! And happy new year to everyone.

Voted . Fab visit to the museum for the Bluebird when we visited 2 yrs ago . amazing project... Jane Godfrey .

Happy New Year Marillion.
