Who is 'THE' Fred Skeleton?


Fred Skeleton was a cardboard skeleton on the kitchen wall of Artistic Director Rob Mason-Brown's university dorms.


Fred the cardboard skeleton belonged to Mr Christopher Ford and when he and Rob were looking to do a play separate from their studies, they chose the name during a night of drinking in their kitchen. Fred was later stolen by a group of nuns who stayed in the halls during the summer.


The name has stuck over the years due to it being memorable and eye catching.
