"There were hoots of laughter as we listened to her often outrageous slant on life and stories of her experiences and advice.
Her talk ended with a rousing round of applause; everyone commenting on their enjoyment of such a wonderful speaker. After more than 36 years
Lady Crabtree is still wowing audiences . What a wonderful ending to 2014, with smiles all round."  KINGSTON WI

Based in the Sussex town of Eastbourne, Lady Crabtree can add a touch of comic class to any event. And if you are looking for a performer without bad language, vulgarity or profanity, then her genteel style of humour may be just what you're looking for and Lady Crabtree is ideally suited to the more mature audience. For a Club, Group or Society meeting, her talks are ideal.

For special occasions the talks can be presented with a lunch or afternoon tea at the AA four-star Langham Hotel, Royal Parade, Eastbourne - perfect for your 'annual' outing or Christmas get-together.

Lady Crabtree undertakes many individual events... making a witty speech for a particular function; opening fetes and fairs; surprise presentation speeches for a retirement or a special birthday geared towards an individual.

For Variety Shows or concerts, Lady Crabtree can act as hostess or appear as a stand-up comedy spot within the show.
