Sir Phil Redmond CBE
Grange Hill & Hollyoaks
Perhaps best known for creating ground-breaking drama series, including ‘Grange Hill’, ‘Brookside’ and ‘Hollyoaks’, and as an advocate for Liverpool and Merseyside, Sir Phil Redmond is also a driver for positive change across the nation. The UK City of Culture programme was directly inspired and driven by him, using culture and creativity to transform communities and help grow artistic talent; as well as attract more visitors to an area, supporting the local economy. His work on UK City of Culture and all his contributions to the public sector are entirely voluntary and he has supported many charitable and public sector causes.
