Dan Martins, Plumbing Engineer, has recently taken part in the ‘Talking Statue’ scheme by Sing London, to give the ‘Plumbing Apprentice’ statue at Cannon Street Station a voice.
Dan won bronze at WorldSkills last year, and was presented with a gold award from The Worshipful Company of Plumbers for his contribution to plumbing. Following this success he was invited by the company to be the voice for the ‘Plumbing Apprentice’ statue that was commissioned by the Worshipful Company of Plumbers, to commemorate the existing site of their Livery Hall.
The Plumber’s Apprentice is the latest addition to ‘Talking Statues’ London. Dan joins the likes of Prunella Scales, Jeremy Paxman, Hugh Bonneville and Sir Patrick Stewart who voice statues across the city. Talking Statues breathe a new life into statues around the city using drama, humour and location technology.
To hear what Dan has to say, follow the link, Speak2.co/plumber, or visit the statue at Cannon Street Station and swipe you smartphone on the nearby plaque to receive a phone call from the statue.
