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'
'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.

Edinburgh Festival 2014
Edinburgh Festival 2014
It's always a joy to be back at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and this year I have composed music for two shows by Les Enfants Terribles. The newly extended (and wonderfully silly) Dr Longitude's Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie and Ernest and the Pale Moon (with Neil Townsend) are both at the Pleasance Courtyard this summer. They are running until 25th August - if you're near Edinburgh, go see!

Congratulations to all involved, it really was an amazing team to work with. I know that Nanny Plum and the Wise Old Elf will be delighted!
