The film I’m off to see… God Help the Girl, based on the musical project by Stuart Murdoch of the group Belle & Sebastian

I’d like theatre tickets for… Last night of the Proms

The one exhibition on my wish list… Tower of London Remembers, the installation featuring thousands of handmade ceramic poppies to mark the centenary of World War

You’ll find me in the front row of… anything featuring Meow Mewo (stage name of Australia Cabaret singer Melissa Madden Gray) She is spectacular!

I’m listening to…Vivaldi’s fairly unknown opera Bajazet

I’m reading… The Big Issue

I’s like to give a cheeky plug to… Mid Wales Opera’s new production of Carmen.  You can catch the vibrant young cast, including your’s truly, at a number of venues throughout Wales this autumn as we perform Bizet’s popular opera.

There is a gala performance at Theatr Hafren, Newtown Wednesday 3 September
