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


I will be pleased to serve as your Toastmaster, Master of Ceremonies or Compere at any venue in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and indeed throughout East Anglia and the UK. I am the recommended toastmaster for Dunston Hall  & Hockwold Hall, and am available for a variety of functions.  These include Award ceremonies, Fashion shows, Corporate dinners and Masonic Ladies Festivals (including singing of the Ladies song) and of course weddings.


A number of my bookings have been rearranged because of the Covid-19 pandemic. If you are considering booking me for your wedding, either in Norfolk, Suffolk or elsewhere in the UK, please get in touch as soon as possible in order to secure your preferred date.  The wearing of masks at weddings is currently not compulsory but, as you can see, I am ready with my mask if necessary 🙂 Stay safe and well.
