Welcome and thank you for visiting the website home of Toastmaster Bob Lloyd.
Based in Norwich, I am available to act as your Toastmaster, Master of Ceremonies or Compere at any venue in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex 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 from the wedding page header with my helpful hints, guide to the speeches, guide to wedding day timings and a list of various venues I have worked at and recommend. My current fees are also displayed in the drop down box. 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. Many have been kind enough to send me testimonials which you can read 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. There are also some wedding shows coming up early in the new year that I will be attending. The next is this coming Sunday 26th January @ Hockwold Hall (11am-3pm). Then on Sunday 16th February @ Mercure Hotel, Norwich (10.30-2.30pm); Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd EDP Bride @ The Norfolk Showground (10-4pm). I have complimentary tickets available for the showground. Like and comment with your wedding date on my Toastmaster Bob Facebook page and I will enter you in the draw for the tickets to be made on February 14th.
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 training with the Association of the UK School of Professional Toastmasters, enables me to ensure the correct procedures and etiquette are observed. At your wedding I will be on hand with my friendly but professional approach to guide you and your guests through the whole day. 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.
In my role as the official Town Crier for the City of Norwich I take part in a number of civic events. I am also able to offer a unique opportunity for companies and individuals who wish to have a proclamation made on the streets of Norwich, or at any special event in Norfolk. Visit the Town Crier page for more details.
As you can see from the page bar at the top there is one more role I have each year. I am available for private parties and visits as well as appearing from mid November until 24th December at Notcutts Garden Centre grotto. The dates and times will be published from October on my events page and on the Father Christmas page. Be sure to tell the elves that you want to see ‘Santa Bob’.
