A fun fact not many people know about you

As a student, I was rehearsing for a concert in Canterbury Cathedral the same evening. After the rehearsal, I realised my tails had been stolen with only 30 minutes to go before the concert. Thinking I was going to have to perform in my t-shirt and jeans, the police arrived with my tails, which had been dumped on the street!

Where’s the strangest place you’ve performed?

In a bank vault.
