“We employed Derek as Winston Churchill for a very important launch event in front of a crowd of 300 of our key clients, retailers and press. It was essential we got this right. Derek was not only professional in his approach to the event, but great to work with and was only too keen to provide us with a great service. Not to mention being a convincing Mr Churchill!”

The contribution that Derek made to the night encapsulated the anniversary. It is such a memorable day that we should all remember and Derek’s first class performance did just that. He was polite and well mannered a real pleasure to work with. Thank you again”
