At BIMM Bristol our 2015 graduating class were joined by very special guest, Huey Morgan of Fun Lovin’ Criminals. Huey, who is also a popular BBC 6 Music DJ, delivered a funny, clued up and touching speech to the assembled graduates, rounding off a milestone day for BIMM’s next generation of talent.
The host for the day was Jon Harper, drummer with The Cooper Temple Clause, BIMM Bristol’s Module Leader for Engaging With Industry and one of the many dedicated staff who have helped steer the Class of 2015 to their successful destination. Catherine Brown is one such graduate, having completed a Music Industry Management Degree. She spoke about the special occasion:
“The whole day was filled with smiles and laughter – we all looked professional and like achievers. It was a day of celebration with people I’ve spent the last three years with. Everyone in the same place, celebrating our achievement. From the moment I put my gown on I couldn’t stop smiling!”
When it came Huey’s turn to speak he wasn’t short on words of wisdom and opinions for the graduates, including on BIMM itself:

On working towards success he told the audience:
Back to graduate, Catherine Brown:
“The whole day was perfect from start to finish. For our final send-off, we stood outside the front of the hall, waving our hats around as our experience at the institution that served us well for three years came to a close. We were all very merry celebrating the final hours we all had together before we woke up the next day in the real world!”
As Huey said, ‘It’s an open book now and you write your next chapter.’
