Julia Caddick Singing CambridgeJulia Caddick started her professional career teaching music and drama in an inner city comprehensive school in London.

Julia worked for the Unicorn Theatre for Children from 1988 to 1994 as composer & musician on their education & workshop team. Song-writing and poetry commissions followed, including for BBC Radio for Schools, and ITV’s ‘Havakazoo’.
