From A Borrowed Biro

Who We Are.....

A very small team who make up for it with enthusiasm and a love of the new.....

Liz Weston
Liz has a been involved in a wide range of arts - from fringe theatre in the 1970's to, most recently, Education and Outreach Manager at the New Theatre Royal. She was one of the team who set up the street theatre in Covent Garden; ran a cabaret circus and managed Covent Garden Community Theatre. 

In the 80's she was the founder director of the Hornpipe Arts Centre in Portsmouth, bringing such companies as Gay Sweatshop and  Spare Tyre to the city.

She believes in the power of live arts - the dynamics created when performer and audience share a space.
