Yes! Brummie accountants get prog rock treat

Wakeman In the world of accountancy, nothing can usually top the Accountancy Age Awards for glitz and glamour. The prestigious location (in a tent in Battersea Park), the attendance of great and the good of the accountancy world and especially the guest presenters (which have included Ian Hislop, Rory Bremner and Jack Dee in recent years) are hard to beat.

But TS has to take its hat off and admit defeat this year after reading about the Birmingham & West Midlands Society of Chartered Accountants Awards.

Guest of honour at the ceremony on 7 April will be none other than 70’s prog rock legend Rick Wakeman.

That’s right, the former Yes keyboard maestro will be in attendance, along with 400 guests, at the International Convention Centre in England’s second city, though TS can’t promise he will be wearing his famous wizard’s robes.

Fear not dear readers, TS has plans to outdo these upstarts. Here starts the campaign to get Electric Light Orchestra playing at this year’s awards ceremony.
