We’ll miss you PETE

Like many islanders, we at EVOKE were saddened to hear of the death of Peter Legg, often affectionately called ‘Pete the Sweep’ by those who knew him.

Pete will have been known to many in the local entertainment community since he rarely missed an event, and he was a familiar face at all of EVOKE’s productions.

He always seemed to sit in the same part of the theatre, and even if those of us on stage didn’t know he was in on a particular night, it didn’t take long before we recognised his distinctive chuckle – and not always during comedic moments!

The island has lost a great patron of the arts, and we feel like we’ve lost a great friend.

RIP Pete.
