“I’m delighted and honoured to be a patron of The Godber Theatre Foundation. Supporting and developing young talent from Hull and East Yorkshire. I’m very proud of my connections to this part of the world and still have friends and family living nearby. To give support and guidance to young actors from brilliant mentors like John and Jane is a rare gift. I know without the experience and energy of similar community spirited individuals when I was growing up, I certainly wouldn’t be an actor today.
It’s vital that we support and develop young talent from all backgrounds across this country, in order to continue the rich and diverse cultural legacy that makes our nation great."
