Pete has been an actor and writer since the mid 1990’s. Originally a qualified nurse, he left to study Performance at Northumbria University in 1998, gaining First Class Honours. Pete is primarily interested in community based involvement, and children’s theatre.
In recent years Pete has focused on community projects in central Gateshead, working to help discover skills and talents within neighbourhoods, and promoting opportunities to share these through performances, workshops, film making, and music events and festivals.
Alongside Gateshead Surestart Children’s centres, Pete has created children’s shows which ‘tour’ local children’s centres bringing theatre to young children with no previous experience of drama participation. Importantly, these are devised, written and performed alongside members of the local community.
