Norman Prince has been involved in the ‘World of Entertainment’ for over 40 years! After leaving the hugely popular Houghton Weavers Folk Group, of which he was the Leader and front man for 24 years, he has spent the past 14 years as a Comedian, Compere, Radio Presenter, Singer/musician and general all-round entertainer and is now established as a regular ‘Guest Comedian’ for the P&O Cruise Line, entertaining passengers from ‘Bolton to Boston’, from Queensland to Quebec, and all points in between!
When you look to book an After Dinner Speaker or Comedian for your function it is always important to select a professional who has the ability to entertain at the very highest levels. Norman has been the cornerstone for hundreds of successful dinners and evening events, spanning a massive range of venues and occasions. Equally at home either as Compere or Speaker, Norman's unique skills and sense of humour are guaranteed to bring a flare and polish to any event.
He is acknowledged by many of his peers as the ‘King of Comperes’ and his natural personality and good humour have also made him a ‘must’ for auctioneering for fund-raising events – he may not be able to get ‘blood out of a stone’ but he can certainly smooth it down, change its colour, and get a lot better price for it!
He has worked as Host/MC raising money for Wigan and Leigh Hospice, Bolton Hospice, and Springhill Hospice, Rochdale, of which he has been a Patron for 15 years, and he was the main auctioneer responsible for raising a ‘record-breaking’ £65,000 for the Bury Hospice Chrystal Fund-Raising Ball in 2008! As far as his first love of ‘Folk Songs and Humour’ is concerned you only have to look at his ‘Live in Concert page to see – the love is still there!
