The "An Evening With" concept is the brainchild of Scott Charlton and David "Fitz" Fitzgerald. Scott and Fitz have a collective experience of over 50 years in show business, with a strong focus on comedy and sports related entertainment.
Our founder Scott Charlton is one of the country’s top comedians and MCs. Vastly experienced on the sporting speaker and corporate event circuit, Scott has been the “voice” of Lashings celebrity cricket team for the last 12 years.
Our team is able to source from an array of sporting speakers from the world of cricket, football, boxing, rugby and more. In recent years, sporting legends we have worked with include Paul Merson, Matt Le Tissier, Harry Redknapp, Paul Merson, Phil Tufnell, Frank Bruno, Kevin Keegan, Lee Sharpe, Neil "Razor" Ruddock, Henry Blofeld, Phil Thompson, Devon Malcolm, Phil Defreitas, Ray Parlour, John Motson and many, many more. Visit our Legends page for more details.
We will liaise closely with you in the lead up to your event, ensuring the running order and other details are handled smoothly. In addition, we can provide top quality sound and lighting equipment and technicians where required.
Are you looking to raise significant funds for your charity or other causes. In 2017, we raised in excess of £60,000 for causes in the Bournemouth area alone, as well as hundreds of thousands nationwide.
We can create superbly entertaining dinners hosted by sporting legends or other celebrities and handle everything around the event for you including the venue booking, production, fundraising team and event management. If you are interested in talking to us about arranging an event for you, please do get in touch.
We are looking for venues to host are "An Evening With" production shows with our sporting celebrity friends. These evenings generally include a chat show style interview, audience Q and A, full sound and AV production and potentially fundraising opportunities for the club or charity. Please contact us if you would like to host an fun and innovative sporting speaker event.
From this year, we will be offering our very own “Race Night” evenings!
If you are seeking an evening of simple and straightforward entertainment, with a view to raising valuable funds for your club – this could be the perfect event for you! Real footage of horse racing, a tote and even the chance to “own” a horse on the night make for a fun packed evening.
Our “Race Night” MC will provide a packaged evening, including all details, equipment and racing videos.
If you are already holding a cricket or football match with us, why organise a “Race Night” evening on the eve of the big match? A perfect opportunity to bring people connected to your club together in a fun and relaxed environment.
Are you planning a golf day, a golf presentation evening or even a combination of the two? Are you looking to raise funds for a club or charity of your choice?
The name Lashings has been synonymous with top-class cricket for over 20 years, but we are very much “more than just the most famous cricket club in the world”
From 2016, Lashings Events Division will be offering golf clubs across the UK and beyond, the exciting opportunity for your members and guests to both play with international household names from the world of both cricket and football, as well have them attend and entertain you at your evening event.
We can tailor manage our packages to meet your needs, enabling you to enjoy your big day, raise funds and meet all your expectations.
Fundraising events can often be phenomenally successful but they can also fall flat if the correct personnel are not in control.
If you’re trying to raise money for your clubhouse, your course or even a worthy cause, imagine how much easier it would be if you had a professional fundraising professional team behind you?
Alongside "An Evening With", Scott and Fitz have developed "The Gag Show" to become the country's largest and most successful touring comedy club. As a result, they are able to source from a contact database of over 100 comedians for our "An Evening With" events, identifying the perfect act to fully enhance the success of your evening.
Although experts in the well-established "sporting dinner" environment, we are equally able to adapt our show to meet the requirements of your budget and audience.
In terms of modernising the "sporting evening" experience, "An Evening With" both pioneer and lead the market. From Q&A evenings in laid back surroundings, light hearted sport/comedy panel quizzes to formal dinner speaker events - you provide the audience and we will do the rest!!!
