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: Shakin’ Stevens, Merry Christmas Everyone is without a doubt my favourite. I love the sentiment behind the song and it never fails to make me feel all festive!

Perfect Winter’s Day: Going for a walk in the countryside on a a crisp day when the sky is blue and the sun is shining. snuggling up on the sofa with my family watching Christmas films, in particular ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ ….I mean who doesn’t believe in Santa!

Favourite Christmas Food: Sausages wrapped in bacon! I don’t know why these aren’t a part of roast dinner’s all year round, they are absolutely delicious and I wait all year for this little taste of heaven!

Favourite Aspect of the Show: I love the creativity, fun and love that is poured into this show from the events team – it’s no normal exhibition which makes it an absolute joy to be a part of.

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: The Pogues, Fairy Tale of New York. Fond memories of singing this drunk at Christmas Karaoke.

Perfect Winter’s Day: A trip into London to see the Christmas Lights and soak up all the festive cheer. A spot of Christmas shopping before putting my feet up with a glass of mulled wine, followed by Ice Skating and attempting not to fall over!

Favourite Christmas Food: Mulled wine and cheese board after Christmas dinner. Even if I’m completely stuffed, there is always room for cheese.

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!!
