I’ll always barrack for excellence in writing and this is the writer’s night of nights. At Dalton House there were awards a-plenty and John Doyle kept the night just ahead of schedule, peppering the tempo with his own flavour of straight-faced wit. The animators’ table was great company and Richard Tulloch received the Children’s Theatre award for Snow on Mars! He has applied his colossal talent across television, feature film, on stage (including musicals) and in over 80 books, greatly enriching the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people. All power to you, Richard!
