Multiple hometowns (1)

I've never considered Durham as a place I'd call home, but it is where I was born - right up in the north-east corner of England. We left there when I was only a wee baby and, as a consequence, I don't associate it so much with childhood as with one particular week I spent there as an adolescent - a music theatre workshop week full of singing, composing, performing and dreaming big.

Durham in my head will forever a city of ancientness,of castles and stone universities, and of laid back teenage evenings in coffee shops. If you've never been there and especially if you're a first time visitor to the north of the U.K., I'd certainly recommend a peek.
