Allen is an incredibly knowledgable man and incredibly generous with his time. Allen has been a great help to me on a good number of occasions and has always offered solid advice. Allen quite clearly has a great passion for the art of magic.
Thanks Allen for all your generosity and great advice.

Not only does he do what people see on the forum, but he was also kind enough a while back to email me the details on his character Mr.Tippi (and the way the character came about) - which are superb and have helped me when I do children's show

A real gentlemen and 100% deserving on the award

Well done, Allen

Are you watching closely? Then I'll begin...

I was searching for some old data files today and and found the CV Allen sent me in July 2005. It gives a fuller history of his attributes and activities, plus a very impressive list of known stars who have been tutored or mentored by Allen:

Arriving in Nottingham in 1957 he became the first full time specialist in drama in the City’s schools; also pioneering drama and theatre examinations, as Chairman of the Drama Panel, with the CSE Board. He has been actor, director and choreographer for various well known local groups, including the Co-operative Arts Theatre (42 years) and Nottingham Theatre Club (now The Lacemarket), Ravenshead G & S Society ( 9 years).

    Allen has also carried out extensive youth theatre work at both these theatres and at The Bonington Theatre, Sheffield Playhouse and Nottingham Playhouse; where he was Director, for 8 years, (& one of the founders) of the Youth Workshop.
