A graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), Alan has appeared in many productions on stage and screen, most recently as Mr Perks in the West End production of The Railway Children. Originally from North Lincolnshire he has an RP accent but can rekindle his old northern dialect at the drop of a hat. His voice is friendly, engaging, occasionally wry and there is a certain “everyman” quality about him.
Alan is also a qualified Blue Badge tourist guide and when he is not on the mic he can be seen guiding groups around London and other parts of the UK. He also speaks French fluently.
