About Us

Sitting In The Cheap Seats is the internet repository for the inane ramblings of Matt Merritt. Matt is a long time theatre lover from Portsmouth who has previously garnered a reputation as an independent music journalist, appearing regularly on BBC radio and being published by a number of websites and publications. In 2013 he finally decided to put two and two together and start writing about his first love!

Matt is also a passionate rugby fan and season ticket holder at London Irish. He regularly interviews players at the club (you can read those interviews at lisc.uk) and here you will find his wider thoughts on the game and interviews with interesting people from across the sport.
