We're really pleased Marcus has joined us bringing even more depth to our talented team at Great British Voices!

Founding Director of Great British Voices Jane Farnham said:

"We're absolutely thrilled such a voice over star like Marcus has joined the team, it's a huge vote of confidence in what Steve and I set out to do with the Great British Group of companies.

This includes:

GREAT BRITISH VOICES: British Voices: for British, International and kids voices with studios!

GREAT BRITISH PRESENTERS: supplying Professional Corporate Presenters, Broadcast Journalists & Demonstrators.

and more recently,

GREAT BRITISH SPEAKERS: Providing BIG NAME Motivational Speakers, Keynote Speakers, After Dinner Speakers, Hosts, Facilitators, Comperes, ‘Voice of God’ Entertainers, Comedians, Musicians & Magicians".

In a way it's unfair to single out just one voice, we also have 200+ other talented people in the team including Darren - 'I am an IAM's Cat' and Jen, 'The voice of the Apple store', our team have been the voice for nearly every high street brand and multinational blue chip around the globe.

Hear all their demos online or call for advice on creating a shortlist to choose from!

We now have Great British Voices with well over 200 talented voice over artists all with their own broadcast studios for speedy turnaround, and we're adding international voices and kids voices with 'Tiny British Voices' You really have to be aware of all the compliance of working with children in the media and we are working with Jonanne Lamb who is an expert in this field to develop this part of the business to make it as easy as possible for media producers to get the result they need and have peace of mind everything is within legistlation.

Patrick

Patrick is definitely among the more “well-established” voices in the UK.  

Having enjoyed 25 years as a newsreader and presenter on BBC Radio 2, during which time he also voiced trailers on BBC Television, he now has his own broadcast quality studio with ISDN.  He can usually achieve a fast turnaround for recorded projects.

He has been the narrator on many television documentaries, and the voiceover on hundreds of commercials, both radio and TV.  He regularly records corporate videos, for use all over the world.  He is also often in demand as the ‘Voice of God’ at Awards ceremonies.  His voice has been described as warm, authoritative, mature, friendly, deep, loud, and hard-sell – but not necessarily all at once! Tell him which qualities you need for your project…
