A Homage to Geoff Cooksey DVD
A Homage to Geoff Cooksey DVD
When anyone dies, it is natural for the nearest and dearest to gather to remember and celebrate that person's life. But how many of us deserve a whole evening in a theatre dedicated to paying homage to someone whose originality, warmth, generosity, courage, radical thinking and humour inspired a couple of hundred people to sit for 2½ hours listening to music, songs and tributes, from the stage and screen? Geoff Cooksey, the first Director of Stantonbury Campus in Milton Keynes was such a person and these 2 DVDs capture the whole event in sound and image, allowing the thousands of students and teaching colleagues, who couldn't get into the theatre that unforgettable night, the chance to share in the Homage to Geoff; and those who were in attendance to possess a documentary record to treasure.
