From stage to museum, welcome the storyteller

LUDO KESTON has always been a storyteller, whether it has been through theatre, history or both.

Now the new chief executive of the River and Rowing Museum in Henley is to help tell the story of the Thames.

The move is something of a homecoming for 54-year-old Mr Keston, who grew up in Maidenhead then toured the world as a stage manager with various theatre productions.

He says: “When you get to your fifties you start to join up the dots of your past, so it feels like serendipity to find myself back here.”

Mr Keston succeeds Paul Mainds, who has stepped down after 14 years.
