An Audience with Simon May
Tuesday 4 October 2011
FoSAC Studio, Swindon Arts Centre
Ever wondered who is behind the most iconic drumbeat on TV, well now is your chance to find out.
Simon May, a British musician and composer who was born locally in Devizes, is best known for composing some of TV’s most recognised theme tunes including Eastenders (and the famous ‘Duff Duff’ drumbeat), Eldorado and Howards’ Way.
He has co-written his own musical ‘Smike’ and his other television credits include work on programmes such as Crossroads, Animal Park, Food & Drink, Pet Rescue, Trainer and Great Escapes to name but a few and he has written for artistes such as Cliff Richard and Carly Simon.
In this personal interview with Swindon 105.5 presenter Shirley Ludford we learn more about Simon’s early life, from his time at Dauntsey School and growing up in Wiltshire through to his present day work and involvement with Eastenders. In this unique event the audience will have their chance to put their own questions to the man himself. This event will be recorded and broadcast on Swindon 105.5fm
