Home is….

Being surrounded by my whole family. We love spending time together and all of us are very family oriented. They are partly the reason for me creating Neighbourhood Cinema. Last christmas we were looking for things to do together as a family and there was nothing happening in Bucks so we headed into London to watch a west end show. We couldn’t find anything that remotely resembled the culture, excitement or magic that events in London had so we created the Neighbourhood Cinema!

Best meal you’ve had?

A 8 course meal at Gordon Ramseys 3* Michelin restaurant. The food, service and experience where all exceptional!

What are you up to right now?

Its all systems go at Neighbourhood Cinema! We are getting ready for our Ice Palace event popping up in Beaconsfield this Christmas! As well as this, I am in the studio recording my debut album and auditioning for some West End Shows that will be opening in London next year.

Best piece of advise you’ve been given?

Whatever you aspire to achieve, the universe conspires to help you achieve it! This advice is from Paulo Coelho Alchemist – it is my bible and something I have lived by. The power that anything you focus on and work for, can be achieved and that you can change your life and do whatever you dream when ever you choose to do so!

Who do you call when you want to have fun?

My best friends Faye and Oggie! Ive been lucky enough to meet some incredible people inside the industry that are my type of crazy, fun, creative and also centred! We have endless nights out in the West End that have been some of the funniest funnest moments of my life!

Best place for a nightcap?

For a night cap I really enjoy The Red Lion, a quaint pub in Little Missenden! It’s perfect walking distance from my mum’s house and we often wander down here for Sunday lunch too! 

Favourite shops?

One of my favourite shops is Sophie’s Chocolate Shop in Chesham. Sophie is adorable and makes my favourite chocolates in the world : Malibu truffle. My mum makes sure these are in my stocking every year without fail they are my guilty pleasure!

Last book you read?

The Couple Next Door! Its the perfect holiday read! Thrilling and gripping I could not put it down.

Biggest extravagance?

Our hot tub! It is more expensive than my car but worth every penny. After my commute into the West End and back, I just want to relax and the best way to unwind after the adrenaline of a show is to sit in the hot tub and talk to my husband. Its perfect!

Can’t live out?

Warning….. this gets mushy 🙂 My husband – I adore him! He is the most amazing person I have ever met! He is like oxygen to me I could not live with out him and would not be the person I have become today with out him.
