It was a great honour to present HairStory as part of Light Night Leeds, I learnt that pineapples are great crowd pleasers but pineapple juice really burns your scalp. 

I have really enjoyed reading through all of the tweets and stories shared they will be going up on the HairStory website over the next week.

Once I had gotten home  and after a long shower (to remove all the shaving foam, glitter and confetti) I was straight over to Z-Arts to perform Bolero at this years Emergency

I always love performing Bolero each time it is a completely different experience as I never know how my body is going to react. This years Emergency line-up was extremely strong and it was great to catch up with some of my favourite performers Nathan Birkinshaw, Ben Mills and Paul O'Donnel.

I want to say a huge thanks for everyone that came to HairStory and Light night, especially to everyone who has shared their story with me and to all of those who gave me such a positive response to Bolero at Emergency!
