Nigel DringMember Profile:

Nigel Dring

Eldest son of Janet and John, Nigel's entire family has been involved at the Broadbent for many years.  Nigel hails from Legsby (where he was renowned for hosting some very memorable parties over the years!) but now lives in Lincoln with his wife Kirsty who he met during "Hereward". 

Nigel has a fine comic talent for pantomimes but probably counts Frank Gardner in Mrs Warren's Profession as one of his favourite characters. The role gave him the opportunity to behave in a very suave manner and woo the leading lady!
