George loves a rock concert. Did you know he worked at T in the Park for 18 years? Promoted to Front of House Manager, he got access all areas and backstage passes to see all the stages to his heart’s content. When he’s not at a concert he’s escaping to a country house hotel with his wife for total chill and good food. If he could share a long car journey with anyone, he would want someone with a good life story. Top of the list would be David Jason or Captain Tom.
