The Jazz Centre welcomes Sean Wilson, former actor, artisan cheesemaker, chef, artist and jazz fan

Saturday 1st June brings us the nationally known actor Sean Wilson, who came to our notice throughout Coronation Street’s halcyon years of ‘84 to 2005, as character Martin Platt.

Sean has written and fully illustrated his book Jazz Food and we have twisted his arm to give a talk on his hectic cultural life and books. His exit from Coronation Street in 2005 was the oxygen he needed to begin his life as cook, artisan cheese producer and artist, and we have to say he is a standout talent at each of his pursuits.

He is quite the raconteur, and his talk will feature many stories of bon vivant episodes in his colourful life.

There will be an opportunity to purchase Jazz Food (£5 goes to Jazz Centre) and he will be displaying Giclee prints from the book.

Jazz Food by Sean Wilson: £30
