Catherine Bohart makes one in a million host for Wickes’ awards dinner

Throughout 2022 DIY retailer Wickes has been acknowledging its 50th year with an array of events, gatherings and celebrations. Their latest instalment was an awards dinner to celebrate the colleagues who have played their part in the sale of £1million worth of kitchens or bathrooms.

The brand, who have 230+ stores around the UK, was keen to bring together more than 140 of its top performers and leadership teams to celebrate and reward their success. To give the event a special touch, they came to us to find them a celebrity host for the evening.

Celebrity hosts are a fantastic way to keep guests entertained and demonstrate a brand’s commitment to making events memorable. Stand-up comedians often make a perfect fit for hosting roles as they are naturals with a mic, confident on stage and know exactly how to read a room.

We were delighted to secure them Irish stand-up comedian, writer and actor Catherine Bohart as their event host. The award-winning comedian has countless broadcasting credits to her name from A League of Their Own and Late Night Mash, to Mock the Week and many more. She can be found as a regular correspondent on BBC2’s The Mash Report and has written bespoke material for the likes of Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and The Now Show.

The popular comedian joined Wickes at The Grand Hotel in Birmingham where she brought the laughs to the evening while ensuring the awards ran smoothly.
