Welcome and thank you for visiting the website home of Toastmaster Bob Lloyd.

I am available to act as your Toastmaster, Master of Ceremonies or Compere at any venue in Norfolk, Suffolk and indeed throughout East Anglia and the UK.  This could be for a variety of functions including Award ceremonies, Fashion shows, Corporate dinners, Ladies Festivals and of course weddings. On the wedding page you will find much to help you in your planning. There is also a drop down box with my helpful hints, guide to the speeches and wedding day timings. There is also a list of various venues I have worked at and  recommend. On the friends page there are many wedding suppliers listed who will be pleased to help you.

To see me in action at a  wedding please view the video below. It was filmed by Richard Howes of Perfect Video Day at Dunston Hall. You can also view a video of some photo’s from my 2015 weddings here.

If you are planning to get married and would like to meet me in person I would be happy to arrange a time when we can meet  and talk through the initial planning of your special day. I will also be attending a few wedding shows in the new year. The first will be on the 8th January at Dunston Hall, closely followed on the 15th with the Wedding Guide Show at St Andrew’s Hall. More details are on my events page.

For any event your toastmaster / master of ceremonies / compere is a very important link both prior to and during the event. My role is to ensure everything flows smoothly from start to finish. You will spend many hours planning and may be anxious that nothing goes wrong. As soon as you have secured my services we will arrange a time to meet so that I can advise you on planning your event. I offer you the benefit of my experience and expertise throughout the planning stages with special attention to timings and order of events.

My presence will remove the stress and pressure of “hoping everything will be OK”. Everyone will be able to relax and thoroughly enjoy the occasion. Many have been kind enough to give testimony to this fact. 

Father Christmas

This season I am once again reprising my role as Father Christmas. For the past 4 years I have been part of the Castle Mall grotto team, but sadly this year the Castle Mall are not having a grotto. However, I will be assisting at the Castle Mall Christmas Lights ‘switch on’ – 20th November @ 4pm. I then have a number of shifts in the grotto at Notcutts Garden Centre. I also have a few other bookings and you can see where and when I am Santa on my events page. 15193662_10211111610015987_399377919482395055_n
