Interests and Hobbies

I am a massive lover of Sport including Manchester City Football Club and LCCC. I also enjoy all aspects of the theatre and performing arts. I attend the gym as often as I can, (but not often enough) and enjoy walking and travelling. I Enjoy reading, especially on the subject of sports and historical books, and listen to a wide variety of music. I am as equally happy at the Halle as I am at a gig at the Manchester Academy. I enjoy dining out and especially like to sample different styles of food, wine and cask real ale. I Love Manchester and I feel I have the great opportunity to show and introduce newcomers to our great city. My aspirations are to complete a degree in history and eventually qualify as a Manchester guide.
