The Railway Children kicks off at Norwich Theatre Royal on Monday, July 31. As the show takes to the stage, one of its cast members will be making a happy return to the county. Richard Brindley, who is appearing in the play, is no stranger to the county having performed here previously as part of the Thursford Christmas Spectacular.
We caught up with Richard and asked him some questions about himself and the city:
• Describe Norwich in three words...
Friendly, historic, vibrant.
• What do you like about coming to Norwich?

Lots of dining out, drives out to the country and the coast if the weather is nice and probably a theatre trip.
• Would you rather spend a night in front of the TV, or a night out in Norwich?
I'd much rather be out exploring than sitting watching telly.
• If you were stranded on a deserted island with three people, who would you want them to be?
Doctor Who, Mary Berry and I suppose it would have to be Patricia Routledge as she is my favourite actress.
• If you could be anyone else who would you be?
I think I'd like to be a Borrower just because it would be fun to be so small. Just maybe not forever.
• What one thing could you never be without?
My incredibly sad but ever growing collection of works by Agatha Christie. I love her writing!
• What would you do if you won the lottery?
I'd probably invest it into theatre but also into charity work that helps out of work actors, particularly those struggling with mental health issues.
