Tiddleminster; Don Chetson - Secretary of Culture

During a recent round of factor 50 soaked convalescence, I got to spend some quality time with all the ideas that have been drifting around for my new show, Tiddleminster.

It turns out that the volcanic lump had culture and the tourist trade thrust upon it largely thanks to a guy called César Manrique. This artist and architect saw the tourism potential of the island and successfully lobbied for a tourist friendly economy and some other stuff that you can read for yourself on Wikipedia; just don't be scared when Jimmy Wales pops up on the scrounge.

Using this as inspiration, I thought it'd be a good idea to introduce Donald Chetson to the history books as the pioneer of culture in Tiddleminster. Donny arrived on a bit of driftwood with nothing other than prison tattoos and his love of 1990s pop culture. As a result, on a walk around the island you'll see a grand Victorian folly dedicated to the work of Bewitched as well as the world's only remaining Naff Naff store. There's also an ongoing payment for the rights of Eiffel 65's Blue (Da Ba Dee) which serves as the national anthem.
