I was born in Glossop and I've lived here for most of my years so the life of the town is very important to me.
For me the opportunity to greatly improve the local music and arts scene and create a fantastic new venue, something for everyone is reason enough to get involved.
I've been active in all kinds of music for many years, most recently being a member of the team who staged the Bankswood and Townhall Sessions music festivals.
I work in NHS IT in Salford.
