"Following Mark Lanahan’s performance would be a challenge for any performer. Many years ago I remember watching James Corden present the Brit awards and Take That had just brought the house down in a similar way Mark did during the Dinner.
Mark’s surprisingly operatic voice and performance was so unexpected catching everybody off guard and providing the ideal after dinner energy boost resulting in the most amazing display of napkin waving ever seen at a black tie dinner.
Singing Master of Ceremonies? Well, especially a rather funny, non pretentious and unassuming Host, with his non RP accent, who took the event by storm, after greeting, guiding, moving the guests by announcing dinner, opening speeches and grace, as you would expect of a Toastmaster, burst into the most amazing rendition of Nessun Dorma and many other arias and pop songs including Tom Jones classic, Delilah"
