The One

Our last performance of Backstage in Biscuit Land at the Barbican took place last Saturday and then we sadly said goodbye to this great venue.

It was a beautiful sunny day so I took the opportunity to be outside while I could. So far, so normal, but add to that a TV crew and a man with a giant plastic eagle in a shopping trolley and you’ve got something altogether less run of the mill.

The TV crew was there because I was being filmed for a piece on the One Show that’s going out this evening. If it’s the man with the giant plastic eagle you’re after, I’m afraid I can’t help.

If you’ve found your way to Touretteshero because of the piece on the One Show, welcome! I hope you enjoy what you find.

In addition to my daily blog you can discover thousands of my vocal tics and use them as your own creative springboard to make a work of art for our gallery. Then of course there’s the shop where you can buy a variety of unique tic-inspired products. And if you’re feeling generous, please make a donation. All the money we raise goes towards putting on creative events for children and young people with and without Tourettes.

And speaking of Tourettes, if you’ve got any questions about the condition please check out our FAQs or get in touch.

On Sunday I welcomed Angellica Bell, from the One Show, to the castle and we talked for a couple of hours about life, tics, and biscuits. Angellica asked a lot of interesting questions and really took the time to listen.

If you’re curious about what we do and why we do it, get yourself down to the Soho Theatre this week for the final few nights of this London run of Backstage in Biscuit Land before we run out of seats – or biscuits.
