In December 2013 we were delighted to welcome Tom Hingley, the glory years singer with the Inspiral Carpets to Westminster Law School.

The Inspiral Carpets were a massive band in the 1990s, headlining the Reading Festival and releasing a great number of well received singles and albums, and we were really pleased that Tom found time to come along. In addition to being interviewed by Guy Osborn about a number of contemporary music business issues, Tom also played a short acoustic set, drawing upon tracks from his excellent new album Sand well as old Inspiral Carpets classics.
