Who does Vanessa work with?

World-class museums, tiny indie museums, Jewish, Islamic, Christian and Sikh places of worship, roofops, tunnels, ships, colleges, forests. I’ve told stories on board the dashing steam train which featured in Paddington movies, on board the London Eye as it turns, in Harrods department store, in a Victorian catacomb among the mouldering coffins and in the Wool Hall, Lavenham, (the crooked old village which featured in the Harry Potter movies.) I’ve told stories beside Princess Diana’s wallpaper in Kensington Palace, in the magnificent ballroom of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and atop the tallest skyscraper in the city of London.
