Meet comic book legend, Matt Beames, the writer of Blood & Valour: The Legends of the Knight Sir Bevis. This is an exciting new blood-spattered medieval fantasy comic telling the story of one of England’s legendary heroes. The creation of Blood & Valour has been made possible by Eastleigh Borough Council Culture Unit’s Digital Arts Programme Eastleigh (DAPE), a programme that aims to support new talent and emerging businesses working with digital arts to explore inspirational and exciting new ways to present work.
Matt Beames is a freelance writer based in the Southampton, Hampshire area. He is a co-founder of the theatre company Beautiful Shadows, and am an Associate Writer of The Berry Theatre.
Matt has been writing plays (and various other things) for well over ten years now, initially alongside day jobs which have ranged from unloading lorries to working in a theatre to working in an office.
Matt’s work has been performed in various productions in the South of England and in the Midlands (and even as far off as Seattle, USA), ranging from short plays or extracts to full length productions. Whilst his main focus is writing for the theatre, Matt also writes poetry and fiction.
