You might recognise Trev from one of our core team of tour guides a couple of years ago. A man of many talents it’s been amazing to get him back in to Love Lane. Between giving first class tours he is also a fantastic actor and voiceover artist. We had a little chat with him over a pint!
SO FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T HAD THE CHANCE TO MEET YOU YET, TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF?
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE ASPECT OF THE LOVE LANE TOURS?
My favourite aspect is meeting and interacting with the guests. A lot of the tours I’m doing had been bought during lockdown and the guests are only now able to experience them.
DO YOU FIND YOUR BACKGROUND IN ACTING HELPS TO SHAPE THE WAY YOU DELIVER YOUR TOURS?
My acting background helps to sprinkle a little storytelling into the mix, people don’t want to hear a dull story about hops and wort and stuff, well some do, but I try to make the tour as engaging and interesting as possible. No two tours are the same so it’s good to have an Improv background to draw upon as well for the unexpected questions.
FAVOURITE GIN OR BEER FACT?
WHY DID YOU COME TO WORK AT LOVE LANE?
Cash. Only joking, mostly. With lockdown there’s not a huge amount of opportunity for some actors so this is a way to keep my skills sharp while earning a bit of cash.
