Top honours for Horrocks

Stage and screen star Jane Horrocks honoured by Edge Hill University

Lancashire stage, film and TV actor and singer Jane Horrocks has been made an Honorary Doctor of Arts at Edge Hill University.

Jane had the following advice for graduands: “Make the absolute most of your youth and the opportunities it provides. Be true to yourself – try not to get stuck doing something for money or for the sake of it. Seek out that something that really lights you up.”

In this video she joins Clinical Psychologist and Edge Hill Chancellor Professor Tanya Byron for a conversation about the new Absolutely Fabulous film, her Lancashire accent, and receiving her honorary doctorate.
