“Andy worked tirelessly for the ALD
and his knowledge and understanding
of so many issues enriched all of us
and the ALD along with his kindness,
warmth and generosity. He was a
theatre man through and through.
He loved going to the theatre and
was always so enthusiastic about
the creative work that we do. He had
a great sense of humour and wit not
dis-similar to the finest and dryest
champagne. He was the dearest, most
reliable friend and colleague you could
ever want to have.”

“Andy was a great friend and colleague.
He touched so many people, gave
so much to every part of the industry
and was the quintessential English
'Christian gentleman'. Only a few
weeks ago he said to me "…we don't
have long Clive…". I didn't realise that
his time with us would be cut so short.”
Clive Cartey
