Thanks to the generosity of Craig Robson we have been able to arrange an optional post convention trip to visit his museum in Sydney, one of the the largest and most comprehensive collections of mechanical music in the southern hemisphere. The collection includes magnificent examples of Dance, Fairground, Band and Street organs plus orchestrions etc... as well as the one and only fabulous TAJ MAHAL.
We are limited by one venue to approx 150 people and to help us with our planning we will be seeking early registrations for the convention. Unfortunately at this stage costs are not yet finalised, but we are aiming to achieve lower costs than the London Convention (even though it will be six years later). Included on the Links Page is a handy Currency Converter to enable you to calculate the convertion of your local currency into Australian Dollars.
For further information please contact your chapter secretary for a loan of the early bird information pack which we will be providing each chapter, or you can contact us direct at any of the contact points below, but please remember the time difference if calling by phone.
