Interview on Radio Dacorum!



This week I was interviewed by Matt Hatton and Leslie Tate on Radio Dacorum. It was great fun, I was able to take about my books Wendy the Whale, Black Iris and His Hidden Wings, we got into some deep philosophy about Humanism, and I even got to sing live in the studio! If you fancy a listen, here's the link:


Hope you enjoy and much love! Alex xx

The Dial Up takes a break!

Image may contain: 1 person, glasses

Thanks so much to everyone who came to our Heroes and Villains Dial Up in March! Both our first half guests treated us to a series of villainous runes, the marvellous Alex HW as a range of Disney despicable, and Charli Eglinton sharing songs from her new mafia-themed musical '8'. The hero of the night was open mic host Anthony (above) who charmed us all as he always does with his warmth and wit!

The Dial Up is going to take a break for a few months as we search for a new venue. We've had a wonderful year and a half at The London Improv Theatre, but unfortunately they can no longer accommodate us on a monthly basis. I look forward to finding a new home venue and getting our show back on the road as soon as possible!

Until then much love to everyone, stay in touch and see you soon! Alex xx

Heroes and Villains theme on Sunday 17th March!


Thanks to everyone who came to our Love Songs Dial Up in February, what a charming afternoon! Love was definitely in the air, with a wonderful open mic hosted by Tina Ogorman and two brilliant first half performances from Tracy Holtham (photo above) and Tom Lavin.

Do join us again at 3pm on Sunday 17th March for a St Patrick's Day drink and our usual celebration of community and creativity! This month our theme is HEROES and VILLAINS so prepared for tunes ranging from angelic to demonic, not least from the wonderful Alex HW (aka Alex the Younger) breathing life into a panoply of Disney villains! As ever, the theme is just for fun, interpret or ignore it as you choose. Hope to see you there!
