Andrew Turner lives in Bolton and he has been writing for over ten years, primarily for theatre and radio. Writing provides him with much needed respite from his job as a Social Worker. In 2006 Andrew won 2nd Prize in the BBC Alfred Bradley Bursary Award and was in the final five for the BBC Writers Award 2015. Andrew was also runner-up in the Pint-Sized Plays 2016 and his award, a half-pint glass, takes pride of place on his windowsill. Andrew has had several stage plays performed in the annual Arundel Theatre Trail and he has also had plays broadcast live on local radio. Later this year Andrew will have his work performed at the Edinburgh Festival for the first time.
