“Hi Carlo, I’m emailing to give you permission to publish my interview.”
Shari Gledhill 6th June 2022
Shari Gledhill is an award-winning actor, director and writer. Her love of theatre was handed down from her mother, Edna.
It’s always good to talk about up-to-date matters as this will be of great interest in years to come so we talked about Russia and Ukraine, coronavirus and its effects on Shari as a nursery school teacher and her husband as a supermarket worker.
We also cover Brexit and the recent local council elections and our Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the leader of the opposition Sir Kier Starmer. Global warming, university fees and the Royal family are also covered in this informative chat.
Being bullied as an Aireborough Grammar School pupil obviously left its scars on Shari and there is advice to her 22-year-old self – whether she would have taken any notice or not is another thing entirely.

Recording this social history, chatting to different people about a whole host of subjects is a real pleasure, such an interesting and I think worthwhile project for people to listen to both now and in years to come.
