Mental Health First Aider
Victoria Chambers becomes Tower’s Mental Health First Aider.

OperaUpClose was founded in October 2009 by Adam Spreadbury-Maher, Ben Cooper and Robin Norton-Hale for the experiment of producing La Bohème at the Cock Tavern Theatre in Kilburn, a 35-seat theatre above a very rough pub. We had no idea if anyone would come to see the show, or even whether opera singers would be prepared to work in such a gritty, fringe environment.
With equal amounts of delight and trepidation, we fielded requests for press night tickets from an astonishing number of national papers (for most pub theatre shows, it’s a coup to get one national critic in), and watched as tickets for the first fortnight sold out before we’d started previews. We’d clearly hit on something – the question was, would the show live up to it?Read More
Fin Howells has taken the decision to leave home and move to Canada to join the Ontario Hockey Academy at a young age of 14 to pursue his hockey career. We are raising funds to make this happen, click here to sponsor.
Read his journey so far…
From the first time Finley watched a local ice hockey game he was hooked, one month later for his 6th birthday he had his first skates and hockey starter kit and has never looked back since. When he was 10 years old he was selected after numerous trials for the Midlands Conference team, a team made up of the best players in the country including 2 of the biggest clubs in Britain. Finley was selected for the team and given the honours to captain the team; the team participated in a tournament in Holland that consisted of the German & Dutch National Team and the largest hockey tournament here in the UK.
Finley and the Midlands Under 11 Conference Team beat all teams and Finley raised the winner’s trophy in front of a sell-out crowd. Finley has always wanted to play for his country and represent England… He finally had the call up to attend the trials “Quest for Quebec”. Finley has had numerous trials this year consisting of at least 60 ice hockey players from all over England.Read More
