Entertainment Experience
  • In November 1980, I answered and
    advertisement in the Swinton Journal, a weekly
    paper around Manchester, for a trainee DJ. After
    a brief interview I began as a mobile DJ for a
    small company playing music at weddings and
    birthday parties etc. Initially this was for a
    bit of pocket money alongside my retail
    management job for five years. Following a
    relationship breakdown I used the experience to
    pursue a full time career in DJ work and looked
    for a new challenge!
  • I headed for the lively Spanish resort of
    Lloret de Mar on Costa Brava to ask around the
    British owned fun pubs and worked in several over
    the season of 1985 until October when I returned
    to the UK and visited Morecambe to see my
  • It was by chance that I chatted with a
    fellow DJ in Morecambe and was offered some work
    locally and decided to stay in the resort for a
    while. I was soon offered work in several bars
    and nightclubs and my brief visit to Morecambe
    has now lasted 21 years !
  • My boundaries expanded to include
    Blackpool and The Lakes and I even managed to
    entertain overseas on several occasions in Spain,
    Tenerife and Switzerland.

written about my antics and progression in our

my work whilst based at Blackpool Tower.In 2003
I was given a two page centre feature in the
Daily Mirror as the paper celebrated its
centenary and featured ordinary people in their
employment asking them how their job had changed
over the years. I was interviewed at length about
the experiences of being a children's entertainer

being a retail store manager. It also gave a
potted history about my life and experiences.
