‘People sometimes feel like they know celebrities when they have not met them, Willie is rare makes you feel like he knows you!
He is great fun, personable and a true gentleman’

Rhys Parker Events Executive Viva Esprit Ltd

I would just like to send my thanks across on behalf of everyone who attending the golf day on Friday. Willie really added value to the day and he had time to stop and talk to everyone. He really made a huge difference in spurring people on to bid on the silent auction items to raise money for the charity and he’s stories in the evening were excellent. We will definitely be looking at booking Willie Thorne again.

Rory Hopkins, Executive Producer, Sky Sports

"Willie Thorne is a long standing member of Sky Sports' snooker coverage. Throughout this time we have always found Willie to be the consummate professional bringing his own inimitable style to the coverage. Since joining Sky Sports in 1995 he has gone on to work for the BBC and has proved very popular with his precise and witty observations on Snooker. Willie is one of the most recognisable sportsmen in the country and always has time to have a word with fans and followers of all sport which is why he remains so popular today."

Jacqui Baldwin - Association Manager - British Golf Industry Association

"I am sure for Willie, events like ours are run of the mill but for us it was a special occasion and he certainly added to everyone's enjoyment."

Mary Bidder, The University of Hull

"The Athletic Union at The University of Hull has a reputation of securing high quality guest speakers for their Annual Trophy Presentation and this year was no exception. Willie Thorne tailored his speech excellently for our multi sport crowd, mixing good stories with hilarious jokes but more than this he worked the room and was more than happy to pose for photos and sign autographs. We would happily recommend him for events such as ours."
