LZ Memorabilia Exhibit at Knebworth House

Recommended Posts

Wow, I was at the Rhythm Festival too on Saturday B)

I thought the Pretty Things were good. Didn't stay to see the Saw Doctors who were last on though. Were they good?

Hi a belated reply.

Yes, the Saw Doctors were good, played their usual stuff and got the crowd joining in.

Enjoyed the Pretty Things too, how cool is Dick Taylor despite the fact that he looks 95 ? :D

We stayed all weekend but the weather was dire on Sunday evening.

Funnily enough my visit to the RF, 2 years ago, was to see Jimmy play with Roy Harper, but he hadn't recovered from knee surgery :(

Page Angel - I think your best wishes are the reason for our good run of form, who knows it may put Robert in a good enough mood to say yes. Wolves in the Premiership and LZ on tour, how good would that be ? OK, daydream over :rolleyes:

Hi everyone...an update for you on the conclusion of the exhibit. I'll repost a post I just made elsewhere:

Apologies for the long delay in reporting back about how much was

raised for The ABC with the 40th Anniversary Tribute at Knebworth.

There's a lot going on for me (daughter went to University and I'm

moving house!) and it took a while to return all the wonderful

memorabilia and wait for a few cheques to clear, but I have sent a

cheque to the ABC Trust for £1, 800 ($3,000), which represents all the

profits after paying the costs of the exhibit, and the bank account is

empty! Yay! I thank all of you who entered the contest, sent

donations, bought the items we had for sale, signed the guest books

and helped any way you could. There are some absolutely tremendous

Zep fans out there, and you can be rightly proud that you helped such

a worthy cause as the ABC in honour of Zep's 40th. :)

Although the event was small, it attracted a lot of attention, and I

have been flooded with offers to help for doing another one in a

larger venue. Some of the people who want to help are pretty amazing

folks, and their help will guarantee that more money can be raised for

the Trust the next time around. I am not sure about the timing or

exactly how it will be set up this time as yet, but as soon as I get

myself moved into the new place I have a meeting scheduled with some

of these new contacts and I will let everyone know what happens.

The contest prizes have been delivered to the VERY EXCITED fans who

won them, and I'm really happy to say that they aren't going to end up

on Ebay! I was able to deliver the painting personally and it was

just so great to see a fan so happy! Jimmy is so awesome...just his

signature alone brings so much joy!! The F80 entertainment system

also has an equally excited and happy owner, and the people at the

factory where the F80 was made were coming in just to get a look at it

and have them selves photographed with Jimmy's sig! I will have

pictures of the winners with their prizes up on my memoriesinmusic

website soon. It will be changed over for the new exhibit when I can

sit down and work on it. Towards that end, if anyone out there has

computer skills and would like to volunteer their time it would

certainly help the cause.

The last thing that needs doing is for the messages to be printed off

the web, placed in the band's guest books, and sent off to them. I'm

trying to find a good quality paper that matches the books. Then they

will be sent off to the band members along with a full accounting of

the event so it can be seen what was raised and how it was spent. So,

if you still haven't signed the books and want to, there is a little

bit of time. I am thinking the books will be sent off in November.

Once again, thank you to everyone that helped. Give yourselves a big

pat on the back and think of all the children you have helped in

Brazil!

Annie, biggest pat goes to you. Fan-tastic job and I knew you could pull it off. After meeting you in London and seeing the incredible energy you have and infect those around you with, I had no doubt this would become a reality. Glad to have helped you tell what time is was for awhile in style.

Till we meet again!

Awrabest!

Nice one Annie, well done on putting it all together and for raising the money you obviously put a massive amount of tome and effort into it all. I hope the next one is bigger even more successful and riase even more money.

I envy the winners of the competitions B)

It was great to meet you and to share memories and experiences.

Thanks. Hahaha...London...I was so happy that weekend I don't think my feet were touching the ground! I'm glad I didn't scare you away completely (or lose your camera!), and that you were gracious to help me channel my enthusiasm towards a project that really has made a difference in the world. I've got so many nice emails and letters from fans saying they were touched by this project and they are willing to help with the next one. I sure hope so because when you see the things your money can do for the children it really makes you feel great!

And your clock...it's awesome! Please tell me you are going to hang it on the wall somewhere? All that style can't be left in a box!

See ya at the next exhibit!

Thanks ledded1! It was great to meet you too, and I am certain we will meet again at the new exhibit. Get that pic framed! Then I can use it as memorabilia at the next exhibit! :D LOL!

Frank was so wonderful - he raised about £300 with for the ABC with his donated prints.
