About Me

My name is Sherry Hughes, I am a 58 year old wife and mother. Currently I work for the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, I have worked in the performing arts for many years as an actress, dancer choreographer and as an artistic director, I have had a few small TV and film roles but most of my work has been in outdoor touring promenade theatre. The outdoors drives my life, from my leisure activities hill walking, scrambling and skiing, working on my garden and allotment growing tasty wonderful fresh food to caring for horses and ponies at a local sanctuary. I love animals and children and my ideal presenting job would be to work with either or both in an outdoor setting.
