It is with great sadness that we have
to inform you of the death of David Patrickson, the husband of long-standing Tower member Karen Walker.
David was a great supporter of the Tower behind the scenes. He did appear on stage once - he had his arm twisted to play a walk-on part
in Once in a Lifetime
- but was mainly known to Tower members as a regular reviewer of our shows for Noises Off
and the author of
many perceptive and amusing reports of the Tower's tours over the years. Perhaps less well-known was his work on advising us on VAT issues.
He worked as a VAT consultant, and his knowledge of the regulations and his (free) advice to the Company enabled it to reclaim many thousands of
pounds in VAT.
Our thoughts are with Karen and their sons Jack and Ben at this very sad time.
The funeral will be held on Thursday 12th December.
