Adam Coburn

Adam is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist originally hailing from Oxfordshire, but now living in Guildford.

Influences range from folk, Rhythm and Blues, Rock, Hip hop, abstract experimental electronica and classical roots. (You’ll also spot him in Guildford Jazz Choir on the Main Stage!)

Finding bands has always a struggle and so he decided to go it alone and experiment with looping. This lead to the current project: covering and re-imagining tracks that make his head swim, with a little bit of Ukulele thrown in to break things up.

You’ll find a mix of styles in Adam’s set, as he aims to provide something for everyone.

Tilly Winford

Tilly Winford

Tilly Winford has appeared in several Nomes Youth Theatre and Nomads shows, and recently appeared in BBC 2’s drama ‘Don’t Forget the Driver’.

Tilly has Cerebral Palsy (CP) but she’s not letting that hold her back! She continues to show the world that disability is no
longer a justifiable barrier to inclusive casting in theatre and television.

“I have a huge passion for performing and feel that there’s not many actors out there with disabilities and I would like to be part of changing this fact. I am determined to continue to show the world that a disability doesn’t change a person inside, and that that person is just as capable of thinking/doing the same things as anyone else. I want to inspire and encourage others with disabilities to get out there and live their lives!”

Action Theatre Club

Action Theatre Club

A stage school offering singing, dancing and acting classes in Surrey for children, Action Theatre Club wants to give children their moment in the spotlight – which fits perfectly with our aims for Surrey Showcase!

The Action Theatre Club was established over 8 years ago when Principle, Lizzie Crawford, found that there was a need for a new style of Stage School – one which offered the highest standard of dance, drama and singing lessons yet at affordable prices and with flexibility on the disciplines taken. Since then the Club has grown and now offers over 30 classes a week to around 200 students.
