AUTHENTIC MEDIA have taken over exclusive distribution rights for the Provident Music Group throughout the UK and Europe, effective as from 1 July 2012. In practical terms that means orders for Provident product should now be placed with TMD as Authentic’s distributor rather than Joining the Dots. Authentic and TMD are working together “to ensure a smooth transition of stock” from Eastbourne to Carlisle.

Dernier Publishing: New Address and a Special Offer

FOR THOSE who missed this last month, a reminder from Janet Wilson:

Dernier Publishing recently moved from Tonbridge to Orpington and we now have a new address:

PO Box 793
BR6 1FA.

The redirection service from the old address will continue until September, but please start using the new one, as post from the redirection service takes at least one extra day to arrive! Many thanks for your continued support 🙂
