“Fat Fingers” by Matthew Weaver – main stage event

Nomad member Matthew Weaver brings his sketch “Fat Fingers” to Surrey Showcase…

Fat Fingers

Matt Weaver and Mike Ayres will be presenting an original comedy sketch entitled ‘Fat Fingers’ written by Matt which is based around the famous dagger scene from Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

Matt is a current Nomad member and works as an actuary. He has varied experience of performing over many years within circus and as a jousting knight, though he is a relative latecomer to acting. Since joining Nomads two years ago, he has appeared in a number of productions including Twelfth Night and the farce Move Over Mrs Markham. Other writing credits to date have included school essays, actuarial reports, birthday cards (when he remembers) and apologetic emails (when he doesn’t).

Mike is the current Artistic Director at Nomads and a brilliantly talented actor, singer, director. Most recently, Mike was to be found sporting some rather rowdy little numbers in the December 2017 pantomime, Dick Whittington & His Cat.

Dancer, Tilly Winford joins the list of talent


Here’s our first Surrey Showcase dancer…

Tilly Winford

Having recently graduated from Reading Studio studying UAL in Performing Arts, Tilly Winford has appeared in several Nomes Youth Theatre and Nomads shows.

Tilly lives in Shere, and has had Cerebral Palsy (CP) since birth… but she’s not letting that hold her back!

“I would like to become a professional actress and 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 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!”
