Mike Hickford is a long-time resident of Clare, a small village near Sudbury in Suffolk. He took a role in the Election at Eatanswill scene, which was drawn from Charles Dickens's Pickwick Papers.
Mike has a fantastic memory, and has very kindly allowed us to play some extracts from the interview Tom did with him in July.
