Fri 6 Mar: Ian Kidd (Upper Foyer, Macrobert Arts Centre)
Ian's main interest is in comedy writing and having ghost-written wedding speeches, toastmaster introductions and song parodies for years, he went on to write a sitcom script, followed by a humorous book to raise money for an autism charity. Then, after parachuting into the house band at the local drama club after the usual drummer broke his arm, he found himself becoming involved in community drama. He has since written one pantomime (performed in 2018) and is currently working on other writing projects for the drama club for this year and next.
Fri 3rd Apr: Mandy Williams, Upper Foyer, Macrobert Arts Centre
Mandy is a wildlife photographer (and - on the side - astro photographer). She basically grew up in a photography studio as her parents owned a photography business and won her first competition at the age of 8. However, she didn't up a camera again until she was 42. Self-taught (always learning) she has gone on to win the Agarty wildlife photographer competition, get published and work with Scottish forestry commission.
