Questions about suppliers

Can you recommend a Winston Churchill impersonator?

Depending on your theme and event type, a celebrity impersonator could spice up your event. These actors and entertainers are skilled at livening up an event, whether it’s mingling with the crowd or putting on a show.

Churchill War Rooms are pleased to recommend a Winston Churchill impersonator for hire – Winstan!

Winstan has been created by Stan Streather as a tribute to our great War-time leader Winston Churchill.

His remarkable resemblance in looks mannerisms and speech make him arguably the most convincing tribute around today.

His amiable personality, good humour, acting ability and admiration for Winston Churchill bring his character brilliantly to life, entertaining guests in any situation.

He is more than happy to tailor any speech or appearance to your specific requirements and to work alongside other entertainers and performers.

Since appearances are tailored to your requirements actual fees will vary based on the duration, time and location of your event.

Whether for ice-breaking, meet and greet, witty repartee and after-dinner talks on the life of Churchill, media work or a host of other situations, Winstan is your man!
