Previously Paddy served as a Royal Marine and Special Boat Service officer, an intelligence officer in the UK security services and as International High Representative for Bosnia and Hertzegovinia. Happy to be described as a polyglot, Paddy is fluent in several languages including Mandarin.
With such a background it would appear an almost natural progression that Paddy should re-invent himself as a writer. He has earned international recognition for his work and now we can look forward to this latest book which is a revelatory new history of German opposition to Hitler.
Some years ago we were lucky enough to obtain premises at the former fruit and vegetable warehouse on Brewery Lane. Through much hard work, grants and donations a theatre was formed which now seats 150 people and represents one of the most well equipped, professional-standard amateur theatres in the county. The theatre now stages IES productions as well as outside theatre and musical companies and also plays host to Ilminster Cinema Club, Ile Valley Flower Club and many other social clubs. The Theatre is also available for private hire for parties and corporate events.
