Dec’18/Jan’19: London beckons with all those fab ice rinks and, of course, we’ll be rocking it big time in the capital on NYE. Great news: I'll be interviewing the fabulous DJ Cassy early Jan for in an exclusive for TA-DAH.TV, when she’s over to play ‘fabric'. Until then, wishing you all a Jolly Good Season and a smashing 2019 - Happy New Year, everybody! Cxx
Autumn/Winter’18: The tennis at this year's Senior Masters Cup in sunny Marbs was as thrilling as it was funny, whilst Harry Connick Jr. coming to London for one of only 2 European concerts was rather special! Talking golf, the European Tour returned back to Spain with the Andalusia Valderrama Masters (the rain made it impossible to film at times), and November sees me visiting my old home town: we’re filming at the super picturesque Römer Xmas market in Frankfurt for TA-DAH.TV! Hey-ho, I cannot wait!
Summer 2018: Filming at London’s new ‘All Points East’ festival in April meant that summer’s here! May saw us hit the road (or boat) in Spain, joining a foodie tour of Cádiz region, then off to Nikki Beach Marbs for the Noche San Juan, where the Costa del Sol’s beaches are basically ‘on fire’. Wimbledon followed, as well as countless music festivals, beach parties & DJ nights. Elrow Town London stood out by a mile, whilst the MTV Gibraltar Calling festival in Sept will ring the closing bell! Maaan, I need a holiday...
Spring 2018: Happy New Year, peeps! Diving straight back into stuff: Barcelona beckoned in Jan to grab the boys from DJ hub 'Grade Management' (Seth Troxler, Groove Armada, Eats Everything, Jackmaster, Richy Ahmed, Patrick Topping, etc) for an exclusive interview. Feb saw the TA-DAH.TV team head off to Iceland filming a Husky sleigh ride, which was out of this world fun, and from Reykjavik straight into a photoshoot in London! March has me back in the UK, partying at super club Motion in Bristol and London for more PR work - bring it on!

London has me back in December, with Xmas & NYE parties and all sorts of end of year meetings scheduled in, so be prepared to see me in a power suit or two! Wishing everybody a properly merry Festive Season and a super Happy New Year for now - have a good one and see you all in 2018, peoples!
