Performers, Acts & Talent

We’ve either had them or we’re about to. If an event has some sort of entertainment or appearance, there’ll be a short bio here. If you’re disappointed to have missed something, you can let our events team know via the contact page. They’d love to hear from you and you might be able to persuade them to arrange a repeat performance.



Personality, Performer, Storyteller
Gravesham's favourite Panto Dame and Story-Time Queen, Mama G believes in loving who you want and being who you are.  She came to life during a production of Mother Goose at the Brighton Fringe and has been making waves ever since.
 
Since then she has appeared at the South Bank Centre, ZSL London Zoo, Pride in London and libraries, theatres, museums and schools all over the UK; as well as in Canada and Texas.

Life Coach

"You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.” Amy Bloom.

In this webinar, Certifed Life and Weight Loss Coach David Breaker will be guiding us through steps to achieve self-acceptance and improve our self-image. He will be talking us through his own journey as a gay man who was once 32 stone and hated himself to losing 20 stone and falling in love with what makes him unique. David will share with us how Love, despite being the most powerful emotion we have, often comes with baggage and ways in which we can come to terms with loving ourselves.”

Smashby is not just the one that got away on MTV’s hit dating show Love Squad, he is taking the world by storm with his catchy bops and infectiously energetic persona. 

His sass driven, empowering pop anthems led him to become a favourite on the UK Pride circuit and reach over 100,000 streams on major music platforms. Smashby has attracted international media coverage across Europe, America, Australia, South Africa and of course the UK. His single ‘Living Without You’ received airplay on BBC Radio and was praised as a “proper pop banger”.
