More about Tim…

Favourite place in the world?

The countryside where I live – it changes every day, and I love being out in it with my family and dog, or running or cycling in the area.

A fun fact about yourself?

I was a trainee music leader with Spitalfields Music back in 2008. I learned so much about creative music-making and event production that has been important throughout my career, and is why I’m delighted to be a trustee now!

No.1 book recommendation?

Very tough question! But I recently enjoyed reading Humankind: A Hopeful History (Rutger Bregman) and its message of optimism for the human race.

Furthest you’ve been away from home?

I’ve been lucky in my role as tour manager with the London Symphony Orchestra to travel the world, including visiting Japan on three occasions.

A hidden talent?

I ran an ultramarathon (53miles) in 2021, which seemed like a good idea at the time! I’m planning to do more in the future, as I found the mental and physical challenge difficult but the sense of achievement, through the training and the event itself, hugely rewarding.
