Lord Martyn Rose

"Charlie Drake asked me many years ago "where did you start" and I replied "at age 15 I bought a new harmonica and went to London". I now look back with pride having worked with the greats, Anne Shelton, Sylvia Syms, Ken Dodd, Danny La Rue, Rosemary Leach, Rod Hull, JESS CONRAD...and so many more.


I also studied law but show business was and will always be in my veins. To entertain is a privilege. To do it for worthwhile charities is an honour."
