Live Events

Jim Coulson - Yorkshire Content Writer, Radio Presenter and Video Maker

I am an accomplished live event host, at home in front of crowds ranging from the tens to the tens of thousands. I have a background in stand-up comedy, which means I am a confident presence on stage and can think on my feet. Here are some of the events I have hosted:

Bewildered Family Guide to Yorkshire LIVE

I make a series of video guides to the family friendly stuff to do in Yorkshire, and this is now a live stage show too. It’s a mixture of stand-up comedy and travelogue, with videos, music and competitions too.

Matchdays at Scunthorpe United

I hosted the matchday entertainment at Scunthorpe United until recently, interviewing players and running through team line-ups in the restaurant, before addressing the crowd from the pitch before the match and at half time. Over the PA system, I provided important club information, introduced fun games and helped to build the atmosphere ahead of kick off.

Pop Concerts

I have anchored a number of high-profile pop concerts, including Viking FM’s Brid Bash at the Bridlington Spa and Towneley Live in Burnley, featuring the Saturdays, McFly and N-Dubz.

Awards Ceremonies

I have experience of hosting awards ceremonies across a range of sectors, with 2BR’s Local Hero Awards, the North Lincolnshire Child of the Year Awards and the Scunthorpe United Player of the Year Awards among my credits.
