These are the motley Web UK crew who interview people, write the articles, make them look pretty, stuff them in envelopes and draw silly things on those envelopes. TheY really shouldn't be allowed out on their own!

Where are you from?
I currently live in Swanley, Kent. I have also lived in Harrow and Bromley. For the first 3 years of my life I lived in St. John's Wood, just a stone's throw from Lords Cricket Ground and Abbey Road. My Dad used to drink in the Abbey Tavern and was completely oblivious to the musicians who used to go in there!

How long have you liked Marillion?
Since hearing the late, great Tommy Vance play Three Boats Down from the Candy on the Friday Rock Show. That's longer ago than I care to remember.

Favourite Marillion Album?
Marbles. That album is inextricably linked to a certain period of time in my life for many emotional reasons and that alone means it will probably always be my favourite. Afraid Of Sunlight, Brave and F E A R give it a good run for it's money though.

How long have you been in the web team?
Since 2013 when The Web UK were looking for new graphic designers to work on the magazine. Oh God, that's seven years. I think it's about time I resigned - for sanity's sake, obviously

What do you enjoy most about being part of the team?
I love getting to lay the Web UK Magazine out, making sure it looks as professional as it can do. I get to look at and use a lot of wonderful photos and it's always great deciding how to put them in the articles and be creative with the layouts.

Best Marillion moment?
I was honoured to be asked to design the logo for the 2017 Marillion Weekends. In a frenzy of creative outpouring I designed seven different ideas and the band liked six of them, which left me well chuffed. I'm not really sure how we ended up with the one that was chosen… the band probably went "Eeny, meeny, miny, mow". It was during this process that I discovered I can't spell the word 'Poland' properly!

The band must have thought I did ok as I was asked to design the logos for the 2019 Weekends too. Again, the band liked so much of what I designed that some of the unused ideas were adapted by Mark Kennedy for the Weekend merchandise.

Where are you from?
Born in Bristol (but with Dad in the RAF that was his current posting… so could’ve been anywhere!)  I now live in Perth, Western Australia (a long way from… well... most places, to tell you the truth).

How long have you liked Marillion?
Interesting question. My friend Derek played me a really dodgy mono recording of Script from a hand-held tape-deck in the early 80’s.  Sounded bloody dreadful!!  But happily….I persevered, and once I had some of those new-fangled cd thingy’s - hurrah! By around 1984, all was well.

Favourite Marillion Album?
Good grief!  I can’t answer that!  No.  Really… I can’t.  On which day?   On some days… Misplaced Childhood; on others it could be Brave, or Marbles. Or Script.  Or Holidays in Eden.

How long have you been in the web team?
I had a ‘fuzzy’ start.  Behind the scenes for several years, helping out with the magazine.  I can’t actually remember.  Oh dear.  Am I old?

What do you enjoy most about being part of the team?
From this distance I can’t offer quite as much ‘hands-on support’ as the rest of the Web UK team, but I enjoy making sure the mag is a good as it can be.  But… I’m a member of two teams, so I’m very, very lucky.  I also work merch at the Marillion Weekends, so that gives me the chance to hang out with the other Webbies over a beer.  Or a caramel latte.  Whichever.

Best Marillion moment?
Getting that phone call from Lucy late one evening, at home in Australia, asking me if I wanted to join the merch team?  Not too hard to answer at all.
Alan JonesAlan Jones

Where are you from?
Box, Wiltshire. Made by Yorkshire and Welsh parents.

How long have you liked Marillion?
Since I heard one of Steve's guitar solos in about 1983/84.

Favourite Marillion Album?
All of them, too hard to pick just one, each album contains at least one of my favourite tracks. But I do love F E A R which you could say is my favourite album at this time.

How long have you been in the web team?
Since about 2009.

What do you enjoy most about being part of the team?
Being part of a great team and being involved in articles for the Web magazine and also the Saturday morning magazine packing sessions.

Best Marillion moment?
One of the best was having one of my photos used for the cover of Live from Cadogan Hall and not knowing it was used until I bought it and thinking 'that looks familiar'!
Lucy JonesLucy Jones

Where are you from?
I live in Box, Wiltshire.

How long have you liked Marillion?
Since Anoraknophobia, though I'm sure their music was programmed into my brain from childhood (thanks dad!).

Favourite Marillion Album?
Season's End... no wait, Marbles... but then I love F E A R too... this is like asking me to choose my favourite Beatle!

How long have you been in the web team?
I've been helping since 2009.

What do you enjoy most about being part of the team?
Being given the opportunity to interview the band and writing other articles, helping to send the magazines around the world and reading people's reviews of the latest issue (the associated papercuts and ink stained hands are a necessary evil!).

Best Marillion moment?
Being invited to record some 'backing claps' for F E A R (having thoughtfully declined my vocals for Carol of the Bells!). It's all glamour at a magazine packing session!
Sheelagh JonesSheelagh Jones

Where are you from?
I live in Box, Wiltshire, but was born in Clatterbridge Hospital, West Kirby.

How long have you liked Marillion?
Since seeing them live at Bath University in February 2001. I was taken to the gig as a Valentine's day 'treat' (I thought I didn't like Marillion!.. I was wrong).

Favourite Marillion Album?
F E A R. Can't fault it on any level. White Paper is my favourite track. Prior to that, it would be Brave.

How long have you been in the web team?
Since 2009, when I was invited along as a treat during treatment for an illness.

What do you enjoy most about being part of the team?
I really like the reaction to the mags from fans and the feedback to the 'smileys' that go on envelopes. Always nice to spread a little happiness. I have enjoyed my 15 minutes of fame too: some dodgy singing (on my part!) on Carol Of the Bells and some funky hand claps on The Leavers (Wake up in Music).

Best Marillion moment?
There are many and it's difficult to pin down 'moments' but I'll try: Marillion Weekends, meeting people who have been touched by the kindness of band members and management; making new friendships; enjoying the 'secret' that is Marillion are a few.

But a moment... just one, wonderful memory? I'd pin it down to two! One at Cadogan Hall, when 'This Train' was being performed, that moment when the 'christmas lights' line occurs and the tree lit up in full Christmas splendour and was met by an audible gasp from the whole audience; and a totally personal moment? A PZ show: h ran through the crowd at the end of the show and stopped to give me an incredibly strong bear hug. Lovely man, that Mr h.

Where are you from?
Originally from Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, now in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

How long have you liked Marillion?
Since about 4 months before Fish left. At the time I thought I was cursed! Turned out all right in the end though, eh?

Favourite Marillion album?
Afraid of Sunlight/ CAS/ Marbles.

How long have you been in the web team?
Since October 2003

What do you enjoy most about being part of the team?
Brainstorming crazy ideas to promote our favourite band. Stuffing 3,000 envelopes full of Web mags - it's strangely therapeutic!

Best Marillion moment?
Musically, it's the closing section of This Strange Engine, which makes the hairs on my arm stand on end. Otherwise, it's the first convention at Pontins, where I met my wife-to-be, but I also have to mention singing backing vocals on Carol of the Bells as a high point!

Favourite Marillion Album?
It was always Brave but now has to be Marbles; the best thing they have ever done.

How long have you been in the web team?
Since May 1999.

What do you enjoy most about being part of the team?
Helping out on the merch and listening to the anoraks... zziiipp!
