Lord Crispin

Lord Crispin is the face of the London Christmas Party Show. He is an expert on all things Christmas and is always the first to put up his Christmas decorations, if you listen quietly you can hear him whistling Christmas tunes the whole year around.

Favourite Christmas Song: It has to be ‘Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer’, Rudolph is one of my dear friends and whenever he’s unavailable he contacts me to guide Santa’s sleigh in his place. There is actually a lesser known version of the song entitled, ‘Lord Crispin The Sunglassed Reindeer’.

Perfect Winter’s Day: It has to be a crisp winters day in London either walking in one of the many parks or exploring the Christmas markets on Southbank.

Favourite Christmas Food: Mince pies, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, Yule log, and more mince pies! Anything and everything related to Christmas!

Favourite Aspect of the Show: I love that my team’s creativity makes it feel as though it really is Christmas in May! Walking through the exhibition doors you feel like you have been transported to a Christmas wonderland. It’s such a magical time of year and to get to celebrate, twice in a year is just magnificent!

Favourite Christmas Song: When I hear “The Pogues, Fairy Tale of New York” I know Christmas is just right around the corner!

Perfect Winter’s Day: Probably when it is a crisp cold day with the sun shining. Being able to wrap up but still feel the warmth of the sun shining on your face is always a winner for me.

Favourite Christmas Food: As I am French, I would have to say the fois gras and cheese of course.

Favourite Aspect of the Show: Watching the show come alive and seeing all the exhibitors happy with their spaces.

Favourite Christmas Song: “This Christmas” by Donny Hathaway – It reminds me of how exciting waking up on Christmas morning was as a child!

Perfect Winter’s Day: Nothing beats a country walk on a cold winter’s day with my family, followed by a glass of mulled wine at a cosy country pub. I also love wondering around the Christmas markets with friends and seeing how festive everyone is.

Favourite Christmas Food: It wouldn’t be Christmas without the stuffing… and of course the after-dinner cheese board!!

Favourite Aspect of the Show: Meeting all of our lovely exhibitors and seeing how proud everyone is to work in the events industry.
