Bravo, DOCTOR Ashley Herman!
Delighted to attend the University of Surrey Graduation Ceremony for the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and celebrate the award of an Honorary Doctorate to Ashley Herman. Ashley, a prolific theatre entrepreneur (responsible for producing/co-producing/identifying funding for over 30 hugely successful West End shows in the past 20 years) has somehow also found the time to be a tireless expert advisor, Council member, supporter and great friend to the University. His work with disadvantage young people at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, and through our own Guildford School of Acting, has been exceptional. Ashley confirms that the activity will continue with renewed vigour following this ceremony!
