ONE of our proudest events we stage annually is the annual Marianne Williams Music Scholarships at the Birley Centre, part of Eastbourne College.
Marianne was a leading light in our club until her death two years ago, and amongst the many things she did for AM was to set up and organise the annual bursaries, in association with the East Sussex Music Service.
Each May we host an evening where the very best young musicians locally take part in a competition to win bursaries, normally around £2000.
2015 is the fifth year this has happened and obviously we have to fundraise during the year to make sure that we can cover the total cost of around £2500.
We are very proud to stage this event – and thank Marianne’s family for their continued support in making this happen.
