The Team

John Marsh


John studied at the Brixton School of Building (now the University of the South Bank) where he was Year prize winner. Since then he worked for Oxfordshire County Council and a firm of architects, WBC, as an associate. In private practice since 1978, he formed what is now MEB Design Ltd with Mark Eddison and Peter Brown in 1983.

He served terms on two of the Provincial Listed Buildings Advisory Committees of the United Reformed Church. When younger John was involved with the Oxford & Bermondsey Club both as a leader and as Chairman and has been Chair of Governors of a girls’ boarding school and a trustee of Woodbrooke, the Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham. For many years he was a director of the Pleasance, the fringe venue in Edinburgh and London, was founder Chairman of Youth Music Theatre UK and ran a youth theatre company, Silver Lining in Sevenoaks. He has been a Quaker for most of his adult life. He enjoys most sports, these days as a spectator (except synchronised swimming). Otherwise Shakespeare and theatre generally, wine and trying to complete the Guardian crossword every day take up too much of his time.
