TV's Derren Brown Inspires Young People

"It's great to be able to raise awareness of Joe and the condition Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome," he said. "I'm told that he was a very talented young artist and showed great promise, so to talk to his fellow students about art seemed very appropriate.

"Although I've never had any formal training, it's something I really enjoyed at school and I'm not precious about. It was lovely to talk to them and share our interests.

"I know that a trust, set up in memory of Joe, aims to inspire young people, and I can only hope that by visiting today I have achieved that. I've thoroughly enjoyed it."
