10th May 2020 The person behind the scenes: -

Gary’s musical life started at the age of 7, when he started learning the piano and continued to play keyboards as a teenager when he joined a school ‘group’ called ‘The Haze’

After leaving school he joined a semi pro band called ‘The Phantoms’ that played all types of music for many years from quicksteps to then top 10 for clubs, Rotary and Round Table events around Kent.

The music part played a big part in Gary’s shows as a children’s entertainer which started in 1977 providing circus skills and magic tricks to music that made the programme fast moving and interesting to the audiences.

He performed at various events all over the UK and he was presented to H.M. Queen Elizabeth ll and Prince Phillip in 1991 and in the same year performed in front of the Sultan of Brunie in London

Later in time at the Royal Albert Hall performed with ‘Meatloaf’ in front of Charles Prince of Wales and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall and at the Imperial College London at a science event met Princess Anne

Between 1988 and 1995 Gary took his shows to Qatar (middle east) and provided shows in Doha and many other towns.

Since then Gary was spotted by a member of BAYS then part of the British Science Association and turned his energy to Educational workshops and shows. Starting with the ‘The Science of the Circus’ on the topic of Forces, and then developing other workshops and shows for topics including Light, Living Things, Materials and their properties (requested by the Royal Society of Chemistry), Sound and other sub -topics - like electricity, magnets and all these linked in some way to the Primary School Curriculum.

This then lead onto Gary designing and making science kits for children to make in class or at home. These included - solar powered models, animation kits, periscopes, kaleidoscopes, puppet kits etc.

Now retired he takes his science kits to local craft fairs and demonstrates the models he has made.
