Abigail Briggs
Abby Briggs is a second year BA French and Italian student at University College London and the Culture Editor for The London Tab. Originally from Nottingham, in 2011 Abby lived in Lyon, France, drinking French wine, trying to seem sophisticated and cultured and attempting (and failing) to speak the language. Abby is massive theatre lover, so your best bet to find her would be at a play or a musical, and she was a member of the Nottingham Youth Theatre between 2007 and 2010. She's recently changed direction and has started to write theatre reviews on the blog she started up called Theatre Focus, which can be found both on Blogspot and Wordpress. She's since branched out and has put up interviews and a few other articles too. Abby is also really into films. She LOVES all the classics from Hollywood’s Golden Era, and all those wacky independent movies, but she equally likes watching the big blockbusters or foreign films too. You can also find her dipping in and out of various markets and cafés, and when it comes to books you can’t go wrong with a bit of F. Scott. Fitzgerald really.
