Nannie is a working class Londoner who has lived for many years in her cosy flat in Tottenham, surrounded by her miniature creations.

Character 2, ‘Bella’
Playing age 30 – 45
Bella has loved and looked up to her Mum her whole life, she is strong willed and matter of fact but adores the magic of her mother’s imagination.
