What a great impersonation of Winston Churchill from the top of his hat to the tip of his cigar. His tone of voice, inflexions and pace were precisely those of the great man. It was as if he'd been reincarnated! A fabulous performance." Roger Phillips,BBC Radio Merseyside

With over six years experience working for the Imperial War Museum I thought I’d finally met the great Winston Churchill. Derek, who never stepped out of Character, was professional, charming, witty and really added to our charity fundraising Ball. Sam Lloyd Accommodation & Hospitality Manager at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, Kent
We cannot praise him highly enough. His performance in character as Winston Churchill was fabulous and very authentic. Derek is a true professional, he has great enthusiasm for the role and remained in character at all times. He was friendly and had an excellent manner with visitors of all ages, never refusing a photo request. The Battle of Britain speech that he delivered was a powerful addition to the event programme. Derek is an asset to any 1940s themed event! Charlotte Steels |Museum Manager |Museum of Lancashire
