Margaret was born in London of Irish parents, ‘I grew up loving and understanding the importance of family and friends’. This love of people and different cultures drew her into acting and as an actress and dancer she travelled all over the world. ‘Theatre I believe is in your blood, whether you experience it through story telling, as is common in the Irish tradition, or through stepping on stage, it never leaves you. I will always be interested in people and telling their stories.’ Margaret’s academic career kicked off when she was 37 at Reading University with a BA in Film & Drama. ‘I was then called to teach as I wanted a life where I could experience contribution and growth on a daily basis. Teaching fulfils my need to contribute and I love being able to help people find their path, and their voice!’ From her time in Las Vegas to England's National Theatre, with a spell in the corporate world, Margaret is living proof that life is a wonderful tapestry of opportunities waiting to show up when you are ready and open to receive them. Margaret is very excited to bring her radio show, Fit, Fabulous & 50+ to an audience that are vibrant, sexy and sassy enough to have their say, say their piece and find their voice. My blog is about us women who are 50+ but unwilling to settle for the glib stereotyping inundating us by the media. If we have poor opinions of ourselves, and let's be honest that is encouraged by most advertising companies who want us to compare ourselves to each other, to billboards, and to a fantasy that is not only unattainable but non representative of a huge demographic, then we need to take our power back. Back from the advertisers, public opinion, and unrealistic expectations of ourselves and each other. FIT, FABULOUS & 50+ is a platform to gather women together to reclaim our power, support each other and address the inequality that is rife, yes rife in the current social climate!

Ella-May trained at ALRA, graduating in 2014 with an MA in Acting and has always loved creative writing. When she discovered spoken word as an art form, Ella-May realised this was the perfect way to marry these two passions. It is a rare thing for writers to be able to perform their own words and therefore, put them out in the world as they were intended. Express Yourself has been the most wonderful opportunity for Ella-May to learn her craft through doing and by listening to the truly talented poets she has been able to book. She is enjoying the creative challenge of producing new material consistently, as she performs a set at each evening. It’s a real pleasure for her to bring these inspirational artists together.
