Artist Jeremy Deller may have revealed more about Stonehenge than he realised when he described his inflatable replica "Sacrilege" as a representation of "Britain's history, culture and sense of humour." He said his unique take on a bouncy castle was "a way for everyone to learn about these places in a quite a silly way."
Before I discovered musical theatre, my earliest passion was architecture. It started with ruined castles and abbeys, soon included churches, and eventually architecture of any sort. My love of architecture has never dimmed, which explains why one unusually beautiful day last summer, I found myself among 300 or so other guests at St John's Smith Square in Westminster, invited by English Heritage to hear the results of its research into the condition of the country's historic places of worship - and, importantly, to celebrate all those who do so much to save these much loved buildings from irreversible decay.
