Don't miss out on this year's CIWM Gala Dinner on 12 September 2018.

Your host for the evening – Steve Davis OBE

The Steve Davis legend started as a child when he first picked up a cue to play on the dining room table at his parents’ South London home. What followed was the development of a sporting phenomenon who took snooker to new heights and established himself as one of Britain’s best loved sportsmen.

Steve is a regular on a variety of television shows and has been a pundit and commentator on BBCTV snooker for several years, where his love of the sport that made him one of the most recognisable faces in Britain, shines through.

Steve's dry sense of humour and hilarious anecdotes make him an excellent choice for any sporting dinner or corporate function.  He is much in demand as an after dinner speaker and event host and feedback includes:
