Blue Apple was founded in 2005 to use the skills and enhanced confidence gained through the arts to change the way people see and understand learning disability. Blue Apple have produced many original theatre productions since 2005. These have included full company productions of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ (2010), ‘The Government Inspector’ (2011), ‘The Snow Queen’ (2013), ‘Arabian Nights’ (2014) and ‘The Selfish Giant’ (2015). Hamlet went on to be the subject of an hour-long BBC3 documentary ‘Growing up Downs’ which won the prestigious Creative Diversity Network Most Ground-Breaking Programme Award for changing perceptions of disability - and was nominated for an International Emmy. Blue Apple’s dance performances have been commissioned for festivals, conferences and prestigious events nationally. I also do all their posters, flyers and programmes etc. See the Graphic Design page for examples.
Luxembourg based group Schmidtsmith are the musical brain-child of Merrin Bydder (singer) and Johannes Schier (guitarist, composer). The name Schmidtsmith is a combination of the German and English surnames which represent where they come from. It also represents the craft that they put into creating a song.

Based in Edinburgh, The Occasion are a professional theatre company who specialise in original work and community projects. In Spring 2018 and Autumn 2019 they toured their small scale show based on the life and work of Mary Shelley across the UK, and also headed up a community production based on the novel The Time Machine by H.G.Wells. As with Blue Apple, I've also done all their posters, programmes etc. See the Graphic Design page for examples.
Ian and Helene live in Salobreña and run a property rental / property management company based on the exclusive Monte De Los Almendros urbanisation. All the villas they have on their books are pretty impressive and, if you're looking for a good place for a holiday, it's not as expensive as you might think once you've split the cost between a few of you. I also ended up taking all the pictures on this site. And Ian supports Watford.
Set up by Dave Mackie back in late 2017, Steamtown have created quite a name for themselves with their unique setting and clever nod to the rich industrial heritage they have over in Eastleigh. Not to mention the beer and food - which are both pretty wonderful as well.
Fancy a holiday in Wales? If so then you could go and stay here. Ty Nancy sits in the idyllic city of St Davids, Pembrokeshire. It consists of two late 18th century Grade 2 listed cottages, converted into one. It's recently been thoroughly renovated and sleeps five in three bedrooms plus a double sofa bed. St Davids itself is the smallest city in the UK, famous for its magnificent 12th century cathedral and ancient Bishop's Palace. It is situated in a hollow, which (luckily) keeps it out of sight of pirates.
