It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Steven Brown lost his brave fight with Lung Cancer on the evening of Sunday 7th July. He was surrounded by friends and family at the end and was cared for with great kindness and respect at the Martlets Hospice in Brighton in the last days of his extraordinary life. He achieved so much and inspired so many, as his website is a testament to. His family want it to continue and are talking to the sound community to find the right person to carry on Steve's work here.

If you want to remember Steve, the family have requested that donations can be made to amazing work of The Martlets Hospice. Here is the page where you can do that and share your thoughts and memories of Steve.
