The amazing Mr Lynch
Around 1990 a young guy called Anthony Lynch, who was a student chimpanzee at Newcastle University, came & started working with us. He rocketed up through the ranks, due to his warm personality, outstanding emotional intelligence & the fact he was quite simply, as funny as it gets. A great leader & team player - all rolled into one.
Anthony shared our obsession with WHQ & he went on to stay with us for 19 years & was involved in much of the history & struggles we've spoken about.
In the art of game – players never came any stronger.
He became a key figure in our gang, leading our troupe of hard working banana snafflers, through years of successful jungle manoeuvres.
Anthony is married to Carrie, who he met while she was working with us too, back in the day & they now have two sons.
Anth is now part of the management team running ‘Royal Albert Hall’ in London...
Together we shared some really crazy, monumental & unforgettable times. We fondly recall his silky skills, in everything from crucial licensing hearings, to mashed-up Xmas card all-nighters (which is a whole other section).
Anth was the sharpest, wittiest & most intelligent living creature, we have ever encountered. He helped us shape & keep this dream alive, contributing massively to where WHQ is today.
The fact is, that WHQ & Curtis Mayfield House might never have survived without this guy & his outstanding contribution.
We know it & we'd like you to know it too.

Name that tune...
Every single person has a defining tune.
At WHQ we may not always know everyone's name - but it's a sure bet we'll know what their tune is. This is Anth's tune...
