What first sparked your love of theatre or performing arts?

It would have to be my turn as Noah Claypole in the Harlow Playhouse's production of Oliver! Tragically it quickly became evident I could neither act nor sing and was hastily recast as Orphan no. 28

If you were to establish your own venue, what would you call it?

The Rooftop - an open-air venue making use of some of the neglected rooftops in London. I'm sure it would keep the acoustics team very busy.

… and what would that venue specialise in? Dance, live music, theatre…?

Personally, I'm a big fan of stand up comedy and many comedy clubs are relegated to near tube-line depths. Let's put them up high and broadcast some laughs across the city.
