Sue Bigmore

Sue’s working career has been varied, including secretarial work in UK and Paris, and studying textile design at art school.

However, her main love is music and her musical endeavours have been diverse, from working as a DJ in a top London hotel to getting through to the second round of “Britain’s Got Talent” playing live at the Hammersmith Apollo as keyboard/vocalist with an original song “Night flight to Abu Dhabi”.

Sue plays accordion, guitar (and occasionally drums!) in a country/skiffle/bluegrass band called the “Stomping Nomads” who do various gigs in local pubs, beer festivals, fairs, fetes and private functions. 

She also plays keyboard in a 60’s tribute duo “Sue ‘n A”, and does solo bookings (keyboard/accordion) for French themed evenings.

Growth is good: mission or mania?

"Some of the freest speech I have enjoyed in years."
Baroness Ruth Deech QC, crossbench peer; chairman, Bar Standards Board
