To 2017 and beyond…


I’m looking forward to many more opportunities this year doing all the things I enjoy. I’m always welcoming new projects and partnerships too, so please do get in touch if you’d like to talk further!

Just to update everybody; I am now no longer heading up Arts North Norfolk. I am extremely proud of all the achievements of the past three years, returning to my hometown, animating the Atrium arts centre from a blank canvas, working all hours, founding and establishing the charity and profiling our town as much as I could. There are too many highlights (as a Chief Executive, Artistic director, producer, teacher and performer) to mention them all but here’s a massive thank you to everybody who has been part of it. It has been great seeing the community come together and achieve great things.

Going forward, I want to stay local and will be delving back into freelance opportunities as a producer, teacher, writer and performer. I will also continue with my own set ups (New Stages theatre and acting classes along with singing groups locally) and Headless Entertainment (producing theatre and acts for festivals, theatres and gigs).

Hopefully you’ll want to be part of my ventures going forward; whether you’re taking part in a class or attending a show and thank you again for all your support so far.


In September 2012 I returned to my hometown of North Walsham and began to animate the Atrium arts centre. It was brand new and founded Arts North Norfolk as the local arts development charity to being the local community together and produce some fantastic projects and shows. As Chief Executive and Artistic Director I am very proud of all the achievements made over my three years.
