We were saddened by the news of Brian Jones MBE’s (1936 – 2014) sudden passing on 31st January following an television interview for Britain’s Got Talent. Brian was one of the founders of the Pen Museum in The Argent Centre and a notable figure in charity and heritage sectors. Our thoughts are with his wife Edna and their family at this difficult time.
He had recently finished a book about Birmingham’s steel pen trade – ‘People, Pens and Production”. The book launch will still go ahead on 11th February as a tribute to Brian’s life and career.
