We have had some amazing items given to us for the previous Trinity auctions, which in turn have raised over £15k, including a signed copy of Carl Palmer’s Tarkus, a signed guitar scratch plate from The Darkness, several items from the ever-generous Marillion including a signed drum head, drumsticks and guitar picks, and a copy of their limited edition Ultimate box set of F.E.A.R., a signed copy of Magnum’s Princess Alice and The Broken Arrow, and framed and hand-written lyrics to Kayla from Flying Colours…
There were also amazing items from Steven Wilson including a framed print for his sold-out show at Hammersmith Apollo, limited edition litho prints of the band and the cover image for In Absentia, the fantasy artist Rodney Matthews donated a signed and number copy of his ‘Trinity’ artwork, and from Steve Hackett a rare limited edition and signed copy of his Wolflight 2CD. We cannot begin to express our gratitude at the generosity of some of the biggest names in our music world.
The 2018 auction was probably our best yet: we had the full five-set white label/white slip cover test pressing vinyl version of the 2018 stereo remaster of their 1994 album Brave from Marillion, signed CDs and posters from Cardiacs, Jadis, IQ and elbow, and a set of silver jewellery made from Steve Morse’s Deep Purple guitar strings!
We have been given some absolutely fabulous items for this year’s auction, as you can see below… and there are more to come! Plus lots of goodies in raffle too!

Help Musicians UK is the leading independent music charity. Not only do they deliver a creative programme, offering funding directly to individuals and groups in a wide range of genres, they also offer a Health and Welfare service to musicians, including a volunteer visit service and befriending scheme. Last year, the charity supported 14,000 music industry employees and musicians through its various services and programmes, marking a new record in its 97-year history.
Since the launch in December 2017, 95 enquiries were received by HMUK’s Music Minds Matter support line and service in its first month alone. They have helped thousands of musicians establish themselves in the music business, get through a serious crisis, cope with long-term difficulties and enjoy retirement.
