LINKS PAGE

Updated  August 2016

This page contains links to a mix of fellow entertainers who I have had the pleasure of working with over the years plus associated showbusiness areas that cover various fields.  I will be adding more links as and when time permits so I trust you will find something of interest - but please come back!! They will be divided into sections and please contact me if you come across any problems such as broken links or redundant websites etc. You can go straight to many of these websites by clicking on any images as well as by using the usual blue links on names and I will be adding more in the near future such as venues, music shops and associated entertainment links.  I am a freelance artiste but mostly being booked through well established agencies across the UK, many of which can supply a wide range of entertainers on a professional basis.  This protects all parties and ensures a smooth booking procedure so it makes good sense to do it right!   Please report any broken links and I can check them out. I am not responsible for any content outside of my own website or to the services of any exterior sources.

AGENTS:

These are just a small selection of established offices through which I am often booked on a regular basis and can provide a wide range of entertainers if I am not free!  They are based around the UK and provide local, national and international coverage with their own managed artistes as well as working in conjunction with other offices.  If you are serious about booking professional acts then it is in your best interest to deal with an efficient set-up as opposed to taking a chance on booking direct with no back-up or recommendation - please mention my link when getting in touch.
