Product description

About the Author

Torquil Norman, Old Etonian, graduate of Harvard and Cambridge, and self-made toymaker millionaire, is a businessman, aircraft enthusiast, and arts philanthropist. He bought the derelict Roundhouse arts venue for £3 million in 1996 "as an impulse buy". As founder and chairman of the Roundhouse Trust he then raised £27 million from public and private sources, including almost £4 million more of his own personal funds, to restore the crumbling Victorian former railway repair shed. Sir Torquil, who had previously received a CBE, stepped down as chairman of the Roundhouse Trust in 2007, and was knighted the same year for his "services to the arts and to disadvantaged young people .
