Toby Robertshaw
Halls Committee Administrator

I am originally from Brighton and studied Acting and Performance at Wimbledon College Of Art. I love how no day is the same in this job, I'm always somewhere different, doing something different, meeting different people. I was a chef for 6 years, upon retiring from the kitchen, cooking has become a time of zen, oppose to a time of stress! 👨‍🍳

If you're interested in becoming a committee member in your hall for 2024/2025, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
