Last week, on Thursday February 18th, I had the great honour to be invited to take part in one of the festivals held at London's Southbank Centre. As part of the Imagine Children's Festival, which ran from February 9th until the 22nd, I joined celebs, such as Cerrie Burnell and Carrie Grant, and many others to read a chapter of the classic kids book Matilda for Dahl In A Day.
As one of the most iconic female writers, Harper Lee's death naturally struck a chord of sorrow with the world. Tributes have bloomed across many different platforms for this inspirational woman and the legacy of her work.

I saw the site where it all started, and remember putting down my rucksack on the corner of 15th and Monroe. There's an old quote about that. And funnily enough it comes from Mockingbird
Tyne is a triple threat. Not only is she a talented novelist and Mayfair Historian, but she is also impeccably elegant whilst she was recently awarded Eccentric Thinker of The Year by the Eccentrics Club (patron HRH Prince Philip).

Ordinarily when you look at a photo your mind fills in an approximation of what is not seen from the photographer's viewpoint.

As a theatre director my job is to capture people's attention, fire up their imagination, get them seeing the world in new ways. And I know a lot of other artists who can also do this.
