A new departure for Howarth of London’s Manufacturing Division – we set up stall at the Sussex County Show in Parham over the weekend of 16th – 17th June. The rain stayed away, and we had a  gorgeous warm sunny day on the Sunday especially. As ever people are fascinated to know about the mysteries of making a musical instrument. Mike Dadson, one of our top professional finishers, brought his bench and tools, and we set up a photo display with assorted components for people to handle.


As so often, many people quietly admit they wish they had never given up playing an instrument, so these occasions always provide good opportunity to demonstrate that it’s not that hard, even for a complete beginner to play an easy tune on a wind instrument with careful instruction. Laura King from our Worthing showrooms spent much of her time giving people the chance to try an instrument for themselves, and watching the astonished faces as they realised they could play an easy tune quite quickly! Others didn’t know we had the workshops and showroom in Worthing, so it’s good just to get our name out to the as yet uninitiated!

And one lucky person, P. Meed, was the winner of our Chiltern Sax Prize Draw….. Photographs of the winner receiving their prize to follow!

 Picking the winner!
