Our dear friend, partner and colleague Norman Worrall passed away on
4 March 2014.
He was creative in many ways - and his ceaseless work in the arts was inspiring to us and energizing for him. His music, films and abundant spirit gave people great pleasure.
Friends and family established a memorial prize through Awards for Young Musicians, to enable a student to continue developing his music skills. More info
