This Picture of the Week is of Lauren Sheriff and Tom Finney - who got engaged this weekend after a show at the Old Nick Theatre.

Lauren is a teacher at Lea School and has been involved with Gainsborough Theatre Company for a number of years. She met Tom at the Old Nick, who helped with the lighting and stage set.

Lauren’s dad Peter said: “She has just been in the production of Shakers at the Old Nick which finished on Saturday. At the end of the performance she was taking her final bows when Tom came down from the lighting box and onto the stage. He told the audience he had a very special question to ask a very special lady. He got down on one knee and asked Lauren to marry him. They met at the Old Nick, worked there and so the Old Nick brought them together and has given them a ‘Life Sentence’!”
