George Clarke returned tonight to follow the journeys of Britons creating their own incredible amazing spaces. The architect said all people need is “imagination and determination” to create their own unique spaces and buildings. Tonight, viewers saw Cheshire-based Gemma transform a “tired” horse trailer into an incredible performing stage on a £5,000 budget.

Gemma had been performing in the West End for nearly 10 years but soon saw her career take a turn when the curtain came down on theatres during lockdown.

Gemma said: “I’ve missed performing so much.

“There’s nothing like live performances.

“It’s one of the most magical things. It’s really what makes me me really, I’ve always performed.”

During an impromptu street performance to celebrate VE Day, Gemma decided to create her own performing stage or “Voice Box” in a horse trailer which she can then take around the country.

The horse box was a classic 1980 Sinclair horse trailer which George called a “rare sight” on UK roads nowadays.

The project took Gemma three months to complete and £5,200 – just £200 over her desired budget.

George described the transformation as “absolutely incredible”.

“I cannot believe it’s been transformed to that level,” he added.

Gemma’s inspiration was Bohemian style with early 20th century, lush fabrics.

Gemma, with the help of her husband Trevor and sister’s boyfriend Ant, have managed to fit a lot into the small trailer.

There are two performance spaces, a seating area and a bedroom.

The space even included a small kitchen area thanks to Ant’s carpentry skills.

The team had even draped fabric across the ceiling to define Gemma’s changing area.

The ramps at the front and have been clad with parquet flooring which Gemma said is “heavy”.

The interior has been stylised like a 1930s Jazz lounge complete with ornate soundproof panelling.

Gemma managed to save money on labour costs thanks to Ant who was incredibly skilled with tools, a workshop and an extensive knowledge.

George concluded: “She’s created the most fantastic life-changing project that she can take on the road and entertain audiences up and down the country.”
