events consultant and co-ordinator




With over 25 years of experience in event organisation and management, my great strength is my very personal service to ensure your needs are fulfilled in every way. With flexibility and imagination I can integrate with any client, providing an appropriate level of service. Instant reactions to any changes that may occur ensure the smooth planning and running of each event whether it be a community event, festival, business function, cabaret, party or wedding.

I can either create a total event to suit any budget, contribute a lively addition to a larger event, supply individual performers or artists for business or private functions.  In addition to organising your choice of performers I can supply a small experienced crew to ensure the smooth running of the event.

A few of my past events


Millennium Dome, Greenwich.

Tasks ranged from entertaining the queues to putting together events for special days, such as at Halloween.

Weird and Wonderful Wood. Created by Tarby and now in its eighth year. A specialised art and craft event with a difference, dealing solely with wood.

Ways to Play. In conjunction with Mid-Suffolk Play Federation. A day of over 20 workshops for the training of adults and for the participation of children. The emphasis is on new ideas and ways for children to play. A great many used recycled materials.
