Event Hosting

If you need a fair but firm chairperson for your panel debate … an empathetic host to mediate between guests and audience … a compere for your big night … or a warm, friendly personality to make an event go smoothly, I can help you.

I have experienced of hosting everything from election hustings to burlesque cabaret.  I’ve chaired panels on a wide variety of topics, and helped every type of occasion - from awards evenings to charity galas - pass off successfully.

I’m an intelligent and cultured host of arts events, from concerts of all kinds to spoken-word and poetry recitals.  I’m as comfortable in a ‘slam’ environment as I am at a formal performance.

I have widespread festival MC-ing experience, from the Darlington Rhythm & Blues Festival to the Ironbridge Gorge Brass Band Festival.

For some years, I’ve been proud to be a member of the MC team at the world-renowned Shrewsbury Folk Festival.
