Roy Guest

Biographical

image Roy Guest studied at the Central School of Speech & Drama at a time when that School held its classes in the upper reaches of the Royal Albert Hall! Since that time he has spent five years in professional Theatre and five years as a folk singer touring Britain, Europe and America. He is now best known as an Agent and promoter of Folk Song events, but his ambition is to promote Theatrical and Festival events as well. He is convinced that there is a need for a National British Dance and Song Company, firmly based on the traditions of the British Isles, a similar company to those sponsored by about 70 other more enlightened countries.
