Graduation / News  in AUCB /  in Wimborne Minster

Over 1,000 arts, design, media and performance students from the Arts University College at Bournemouth will be graduating at Wimborne Minster on Friday 29th June alongside industry specialists including ‘King of Pantomime’, Theatre Producer Paul Elliott; Screen Writer, Director, Novelist and Actor Terence Davies; Contemporary Visual Artist Lucy Orta; and Graphic Designer Morag Myerscough who will all be receiving Honorary Fellowships on the day.

Paul Elliott started his career in Bournemouth in 1958 at the Palace Court Theatre in Bournemouth, appearing on stage for the first time as a professional actor in Agatha Christie’s ‘Murder in the Vicarage’. He appeared in many live productions, before making the decision to become a producer back in 1964. The ‘King of Pantomime’ as Paul is aptly named, has produced, or co-produced over 60 West End Productions including ‘Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story’ which played for 13 years in the West End; the Olivier Award-Winning ‘Jolson’, starring Brian Conley (Best Musical of 1997); and the hugely successful ‘Stones in Their Pockets’ which won the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards in 2001. Paul has produced over 360 pantomimes in the UK and abroad.
