My pleasure Lol. I think that you have to write in but not sure what the situation is now as I'm talking about many years ago. We got in through my uncle, who once asked Sir Arthur Bliss (the President of the PRS) for his autograph, whilst standing next to him in a urinal. Sir Arthur replied 'Yes, certainly - as soon as I get my hands free old boy'.

Nice story to be able to tell ;D

Definitely! Glad you liked it Fergus. My uncle certainly enjoyed telling my brother and I about his experience with the Master of the Queen's Musick!
