St Albans Museums and Galleries Trust (registered charity 1051868) has raised £1.6 million towards the St Albans Museum + Gallery which opened in June 2018. They have a further £100,000 to raise, most of which is for the development of the learning programme for children, families and adults.

The Zombies’ original members were at school in St Albans when they started the band in 1961, they went on to achieve international fame with hits such as “She’s Not There”, “Tell Her No” and “Time of the Season”. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019, 50 years after “Time of the Season” first hit #1 on the charts in America. They are currently on tour in the USA.

Morgan Howell, who was born and bred in St. Albans, is known for his giant, hand-painted 3-D facsimiles of classic paper sleeve 45s Morgan creates a one-off unique supersized painting of each single. The natural wear incurred by the treasured disc is duly rendered in paint, making for a desirable artwork and consciousness portal for vinyl junkie music heads everywhere. Howell’s attention to detail is fastidious, down to the authentically distressed and creased canvas that doubles as up-scaled paper sleeves and the tiny imperfections round the edges of the labels of the 27” vinyl records. He additionally offers prints and also takes commissions as long as the song hasn’t already been painted.

Howell’s original paintings are attracting a cult following among musicians and music industry moguls. His painting of David Bowie’s ‘The Jean Genie’ sits proudly on the wall at Sony Music, ‘Yesterday’ by The Beatles was displayed at the iconic Capitol Building in L.A. and famous owners include Ozzy Osbourne, Hans Zimmer, Neil Diamond, Lord Lloyd Webber, Don Letts, Jerry Dammers, Ian Brown of The Stone Roses, The Kinks Ray Davies, Elvis Costello, Blur’s Damon Albarn, Johnny Marr, actor Jude Law and film director Edgar Wright
