MORE than 150 people gathered at Canvas in Bournemouth to celebrate the launch of Tim Seward Management.

Tim Seward created the company to work with artists including singers, dancers and performers from across the globe.

The launch was hosted by TV celebrities Sam Wood Dow and Phil Goldsmith.

Mr Seward said “My aim for the launch was to showcase a selection of the talent and the variation in the styles that are available to book through my company.

“I am very pleased with the outcome of the launch and excited about what the future holds.”

He is also working with a variety of service and event providers and can provide a bespoke package for events, from birthday parties, weddings and christenings to corporate celebrations, award ceremonies and charity dinners.

Among the projects he is already working on is the Pride of Britain Open Air Charity concert, to be held on Saturday, July 21 next year, at St Peter’s School field, with a firework finale.

He will work alongside former mayor Cllr Eddie Coope and his wife Janet.

Cllr Coope said: “It was a delight to attend the launch. Tim certainly has some of the best entertainment we have seen around and can’t wait to work with him and his artistes to make our event in 2018 something everyone will remember.”
