When it comes to making music, you’re never too young to start. For the past year, Christian Neale has been putting together a mix of dance and ambient-inspired tunes and publishing them on his own YouTube channel and web site. Now 13, Christian is currently working on an EP and album based on stories he has developed about space and peace. We talk to Christian to find out more about his music and why night-time is often the best time for his new ideas!

Multi-talented Michael Carberry who played cricket for England for over 10 years, has started a new career swapping his wooden bat for a wooden pencil… and is just as good!

They also caught up on all things cricket and the differences between the sport and arts worlds and discussed how Michael discovered his incredible talent for sketching.
