Fiona LindsayFiona Lindsay has interviewed many of the best actors in the business and is considered one of the UKs leading live, chat show hosts.

Former RSC Artistic Director Michael Boyd describes her as a creative chameleon, an artistic hybrid who brings huge wit and flair to all the entertainment she creates for audiences.
Fiona’s passion and specialism in theatre, performance and entertainment has enabled her to develop work across a variety of platforms including, Radio, Film, Theatre and Live Events. She is regularly invited to create and present programme strands at all of the major Literary Festivals, where guests and audiences feel comfortable in her company and are happy to share in intimate conversation. Peter Florence, Director of the Hay Festival says –The best interviewers are almost invisible and relax into easy conversation with their guests. Fiona makes an audience feel as though they are hanging out as A – lister equals – a rare gift.
