PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding MATT EVERINGHAM could have easily chosen to pursue a prospering career in the legal profession. During the summer he passed a course at the Institute of Professional Legal Studies, which has given him the right to go to court to pass the bar. But while juggling his studies in law, over the years Everingham has managed to establish himself as a pianist, composer and musical director – and has made it his profession in the city for the past six years. •Turn to page 7 Wigram could get cinema complex • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding AN EIGHT-CINEMA complex could open at Wigram Skies.
