Tragically, Peter Knight died as a result of a heart attack in Minorca in early May.

Peter will be greatly missed by all who knew him. His boundless enthusiasm for all forms of art, particularly the theatre and opera of which he had great knowledge, was extraordinary. He travelled extensively to see productions in this country and abroad and his experience of theatre and opera was prodigious.

He had a very fine theatrical taste and he could be quite acerbic in his appreciations. An abiding theme was that things should be “theatre size”.

By a stroke of irony, Peter who was the editor of Questopics, was writing a series illuminating the activities of ‘unsung heroes’ at The Questors. His activities at The Questors were varied including acting, directing, designing and stage management. The loss of his contributions will be felt.

He was one of the kindest and most generous people we have had the pleasure and honour to know. He was a good friend in need and deed.

On behalf of The Questors, we extend to Peter’s family and his partner Neil, our most heartfelt condolences.

“He was a verray, parfit gentil knyght.”
