The Bournemouth Pavilion is a jewel in Bournemouth’s crown and I have enjoyed many shows there. As a writer, director and performer, I know all too well that putting on a performance isn’t just about what you see on the stage.
The team behind the scenes, the technicians, marketing, ticketing, housekeeping, catering and maintenance crew, are some of the best in the business and I, alongside 200,000 visitors a year, love going to the Bournemouth Pavilion to enjoy great performances in a fantastic theatre, time and time again.”
