Ain't nothing but the... Blues bar in Soho, worked as a bar Manager great experience with great musicians. General Manager at London Fields Brewery Taproom, yes I do brewery tours and home brew classes, bit rusty though.

Events and Bar Manager for Five Miles In Tottenham. Previous Owner/Manager of Release Sustain , electronic music digital and vinyl record Label. Last but not least, well established and well known Dj in the scene having played in venues such as Fabric, Cable, Egg, The Nest a well as few International Gigs. On a Personal level I'm a shy extrovert always up for a laugh, friendly and polite in all situations and as I Manger in my jobs always had a fair and balanced approach towards staff that not only made things work made all environment a bit more friendly and relaxed that got many of the jobs stated. This and many other reasons lead me to this 16 plus years living in this city ad loving it more each day, another reason why I've decided to leave the venue management and who knows join you guys and share my knowledge and experiences of this part of London to new comers or travellers. Hope my resume gives a bit of insight of who I am and what could bring to your company, I can easily provide my services in 3 different languages and experienced in organising and preparing events this sort.

My name is Holly and I'm a 25 year-old actress and musician. Music and theatre are my two main passions and my work takes me to the best dive bars, pub theatres, hidden gems of converted spaces, famous buildings and arenas all over the city. If you want to explore the trendiest neighbourhoods in London and discover the music and artistic scene of the city, from jazz, to rock and opera, I would love to show you around. I know Shoreditch and East London very well and I would be great company on an unscripted walk-around the area.
