Clan Museum Fund Raising Evening - Saturday 7th October 2017

Although not a Branch event, you may be interested in attending 'An Evening with Bill Martin MBE'. Bill Martin, MBE, born William Wyllie Macpherson, who was originally from Govan, Glasgow and now resides in Belgravia, London, has kindly agreed to entertain us on the evening of Saturday 7th October 2017 at 21, Coates Crescent, Edinburgh. Bill is a songwriter, music publisher and impresario of standing and is probably best known for writing the hits 'Congratulations' and 'Puppet on a String'. He is also a member of the England & Wales Branch of the Clan Association and features in our '21st Century Macphersons' exhibition in the Clan Museum. The trustees are most grateful to Gordon Macpherson for generously hosting the event at his home and making the arrangements with Bill to attend. It will be a fun evening! The proceeds of the event will go towards the major works that the trustees are planning to carry out to the roof and external walls of the museum extension.
