The book is called: Quirks of Chorlton-cum-Hardy and the Launch was in the libary of Chorlton by the Mayor. It is available from http://www.pubbooks.co.uk https://chorltonhistory.blogspot.nl

  Andy Gibb celebration 2018
There's a team working on the Andy Gibb celebration for next year March. Amongst others: Deborah Cristina and Tesy Ward. We'll soon hope to give you the complete program but here's a short update message from Tesy published on facebook a short while ago.

Hello Everyone!
A little short update on the most recent "Team Andy" meetings.
In order to accommodate everyone, it would be helpful to know how many of our members would be able and available to travel to Miami, Florida to celebrate Andy's 60th Birthday on March 5th, 2018. I would like to structure a week long celebration of Andy's life, including his 60th Birthday on March 5th and the 30th Anniversary of his passing on March 10th. Please take time to carefully consider this request. Your responses will determine the venues and events. Give thought to your response, please do not say you will be there, if you know you cannot attend. My dream is to bring to fruition an "Andy Experience," worthy of the man and those who love him...
Yours in music, Tesy.

  The boy from Port Pirie, Robert Stigwood.
Stephen Dando Collins tells the story of Robert Stigwood. The Bee Gees part in the audio start at 20.00 minutes. The boy from Port Pirie who guided the Bee Gees to global fame About Robert Stigwood Robert Stigwood was born in Port Pirie, South Australia. In the 1950s he moved to London, with only five pounds in his pocket. Through a mixture of talent, charm, and bravado, and many a bottle of champagne, he became renowned for his ability to pick and promote talent. Within two decades Robert was the entertainment industry's most powerful tycoon, managing the careers of Cream and Eric Clapton and The Who. In 1967, the Beatles manager Brian Epstein passed him a demo tape, made by three young singers from Australia - the Bee Gees. Stigwood loved them, signed them, and made them superstars.

Finally we can announce and finally it's official!!!
A Bee Gees stage musical in the works from Universal!
A Bee Gees stage musical is on the way, with Universal Pictures' theater division, Universal Theatrical Group, pacting to develop a production based on the life story and hit tunes of the 1970s supergroup. Barry Gibb, the sole surviving member of the Bee Gees, will executive produce. UTG made the deal with Gibb, Yvonne Gibb (the wife of the late Maurice Gibb) and the estate of Robin Gibb for the rights to the band's life story and music for a show that will chronicle the success of the three Gibb brothers, who as the Bee Gees shot to fame with tunes including "Stayin' Alive," "Too Much Heaven" and "Nights on Broadway." The Bee Gees' publishing and recorded music catalogs are already repped by Universal Music Publishing Group, Capitol Records and Universal Music Enterprises.

It's another adventure for us and a chance to throw the spotlight on all my brothers and finally the real story of us will be told. It's an honor to be working alongside the people I most respect. I can't wait to get started!" No timeline or final destination - Broadway or otherwise - has yet been set for the Bee Gees musical.
