Our bat family are the best

Posted on Friday 12th

Huge thanks to the lovely Danielle, Ginge, Simon, Jordan & Christina who have all donated/signed personal momentos from the show & helped us to raffle and auction them for this wonderful cause. Out Last eBay auction closed yesterday with Danielle’s leopard print body suit off to a good home today! 

Pink Pants bring home the bacon!

Posted on Friday 5th

Wonderful that the infamous #Falco pink pants have gone to a good home. Great to meet Julie and send them off! Thank you all so much for your generosity and your bids for these! All for the cause! 

Bikers are the Best People

Posted on Monday 1st

Was wonderful to take our Bonnie out on the streets yesterday with our fellow DGR riders, even if she did overheat (twice) and we lost the pack for part of the ride.

We had an abudance of offers of help from our fellow riders, with several stopping to make sure we were ok. Love an event like this one which shakes off the cliches so many bikers have to live with. To paraphrase what one of the ride leaders, Dutch, mentioned in his speech yesterday - Bikers are the best people, and events like this brings out the best in bikers. Here here!

Fun in the sun, shooting our DGR trailer

Posted on Saturday 29th

Impossible to resist taking Bonnie out on a glorious sunny London day. Took the camera with us too and had some fun, making our own little trailer. 

Featuring a beautiful London skyline, Steinman the dog, and “Out of The Frying Pan” sung by our castmates from the original cast recording of Bat Out Of Hell The Musical. 

Enjoy ... https://youtu.be/9UE6THO4DLM

Catch Dreams, don’t chase them

Posted on Monday 24th

Less than 3 months ago, we didn’t know there was a  Bikeshed in London. Less than 1 month ago we didn’t own a Triumph and less than 3 weeks ago, we didn’t even know that the DGR existed....yet this morning we are set to become one of the top 5 fundraisers in London so far, for this year’s ride and we are still not done...

We pinched ourselves and asked how is this possible? And realised the answer is the same as everything you want to achieve in life - belief. I’ve always been a strong believer of catching dreams, not chasing them.

I started out in life as a formula one, historic motorcar restoration mechanic and always dreamed of pursuing a career on stage, but as a lad from the village it seemed unattainable. It took the loss of my Dad (47) when I was only 21, to make me realise how short and precious life is, and to give me the courage to take the leap and catch that dream. 

25 years on, after a lot of dreaming, living and hard work I’ve achieved my goal of being a leading man in London’s West End, currently playing in Bat Out Of Hell in the Dominion Theatre. 

The theatre community is like a huge extended family, and never has that been proven more true than how our castmates, crew, company, management all rallied together behind our fundraising efforts this weekend. 

I never realised that a similar community with such a family spirit and shared passion, existed for biking in the UK. 

I never lost my admiratopm for innovative design and my fascination for mechanical engineering. Over the past 18 years I have indulged this passion by tinkering in the shed alone & customising my Ducati motorbike, which is now completely unique to me & in storage in my best friend’s garage in Berlin. 

It was by chance that I became aware that the bike shed in Shoreditch existed while watching a rerun of Henry Cole’s motorbike show in May. That weekend I went exploring and stumbled upon the event in Tobacco Dock where I fell in love with over 100 customised shed built bikes. 

It was impossible to ignore the craftsmanship and beauty in the Hedon range. So I purchased a Gladiator Helmet, yellow visor & mouth filter, bringing them home, displaying them on a shelf and and justifying their purchase by promising myself I would use them on my Ducati some day. 

But I had been bitten by the Bikeshed bug... 

So, earlier this month I purchased my first Triumph from a fellow enthusiast, a T100 who we’ve named “Bonnie”. She had some work done to her already but I spent the next few weeks making her my own, which took me to the Triump store in Croydon. 

 

It was here that a sales rep casually mentioned the DGR and what it was about. It piqued my interest as I have had two family members effected by prostate cancer, one who survived and one who sadly didn’t. 

 

So we came home and did some investigating online. We were hugely impressed by the size of the event, the work of the charities involved and the goals that some of the riders and teams had set themselves. We knew instantly we had to become involved. 

 

Three weeks later and we have aimed high, surpassed our goal and are continuing to aim even higher. Discovering this community and this event has been a thrilling ride so far. Special thanks to Julian Stoneman, Jackie Morgan & the rest of our Dominion Theatre family #BatTheMusical for helping us on our journey so far. We can’t wait to continue it this coming Sunday, at the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. And best of all, the Hedon gear finally gets off the shelf! 

My other baby, with my other baby....

Overwhelmed by the Generosiry of the Bat Out Of Hell audiences who donated to our bucket collections post our two shows at the Dominion Theatre yesterday! 

 

Huge thanks to our castmates, front of house staff,  crew and The Dominion theatre for shaking those buckets. 

 

Huge thanks to our management for their co-ordination, to our producers for their support and to mr Julian Stoneman for encouraging myself and Sharon Sexton to address the audience after our final bow, from the Dominion Stage, to raise awareness for this great event. 

 

And finally - a massive thanks to our wigs, wardrobe and sound team, who patiently waited until the last audience member left the Dominion and we finally put the buckets away, before they could disrobe us and run for their last trains home on a Saturday night  

 

Teamwork makes the dream work! What a wonderful effort from everyone!

 

Now for the fun part....

let the coin counting commence #WatchThisSpace

Join me on the Ride for Men's Health in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

Posted on Tuesday 4th

On Sunday the 30th of September, I will don my finest attire with my fellow men and women across the globe to join the fight with The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride to raise awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health. But before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I need you to donate what you can for this meaningful cause and help me reach my goal.

For your uncles, your brothers, your fathers and friends. Donate what you can, for their lives need not end.
