Gibraltarian actress, singer-songwriter and author Carmen Gomez will be presenting her autobiography ‘Carmen Gomez: Memories bound up With Life,’ which charts her life in 1970’s London as a young aspiring actress struggling to survive in the world of show business.

The work is interspersed with many personal anecdotes and a strong sense of her Gibraltarian roots.

Throughout a long, varied and successful career, Carmen played roles in classic television Sci-Fi series such as Dr Who, in avant-garde fringe theatrical productions, and musicals, notably starring in a dazzling production of ‘Carmen Miranda’ in London's West End, and in the eponymous stage biopic of rock‘n’roll legend Buddy Holly.

She has worked alongside Hollywood stars like Ewan McGregor and Rachel Weisz and the world famous musician Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber.
