How and when did you start playing?
7 years old after being a bridesmaid at a wedding with lots of band people. Was given an old cornet and then an old Besson flugelhorn that wouldn’t play about a G - might well account for never developing a strong top range! Went back onto cornet after uni.

How many bands have you played with?

What is your favourite piece for brass band?
Too many favourites to pick a front runner but anything that generates an emotional response.

What would your autobiography be called?
Smashing the glass ceiling into smithereens
I’m still trying to do this so clearly too early to write the autobiography yet.


What superpower would you like to have and why?
The power to create more hours in the day - I never have enough


If you won a million pounds on the lottery what would your very first thought be?
Save half spend half

If you could be any animal, what would you be?

Where in the world would you still like to visit?
Galápagos Islands

Cold Feet
