'Raymond Briggs' Father Christmas' on stage
'Raymond Briggs' Father Christmas' on stage
I'm currently performing as the actor-musician in 'Raymond Briggs' Father Christmas' at the West Yorkshire Playhouse. It's a delightful adaptation by Pins and Needles Productions of the well-loved book, and Lucy Rivers' fantastic music for the show is great fun to perform. I'm also very happy to be performing with a baritone saxophone again!

'On Angel Wings'
I've just finished editing Illuminated Film Company's animated version of Michael Morpurgo's book 'On Angel Wings' (directed by Dave Unwin and produced by Iain Harvey). It premiered at the London Film Festival this October, and will be broadcast by the BBC this Christmas. Featuring the voices of Michael Gambon, Dominic Cooper and Juliet Stephenson, and with music by Julian Nott, it has been a wonderful project to work on.

They are running until 25th August - if you're near Edinburgh, go see!
