Hi, I’m Wayne. Grew up in Lowestoft, now living in Saxmundham and really enjoying the commute to Norwich where I look after press and PR for performing arts hub The Garage. Juggling that with freelance writing, reviewing and editing for anyone who’ll have me after years as a journalist. Love having honest, fun chats about arts, culture and entertainment.
Your ultimate desert island disc track?
'Birdhouse in Your Soul' by They Might Be Giants.
Who would play you in the film of your life?
Easy, Meryl Streep.
If you had to be locked inside one gallery overnight, which would it be and why?
Not exactly a gallery but The Museum of the Moving Image in London (sadly long closed).
If you could live inside one painting or sculpture, what would it be?
Bit of a cheat but the cover of the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Imagine the stories.
What was the last book that made you cry, or laugh out loud?
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. Literary detective Thursday Next chases a master criminal through the world of Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. Hilarious and so quotable. Worth it for the line “You’ve got a face longer than a Dickens novel. What’s the problem?”
