    Matt Turner

    Managing Director

    Matt founded Clownfish Events in 2009. A consummate event professional, his ambition and energy remain the driving forces of the business today.

    Clownfish has taken Matt from Chessington to China (and everywhere in between) on a quest for new and innovative event ideas for clients like Apple, Google and YouTube.

    He is a lover of music, people and food - and on the rare occasions he is not working you’ll find him enjoying a bit of sea air on the South Coast.

    PA to Matt Turner

    During the summer of 2017, Sara swapped luxury limousine bookings for a giant Scalextric when she moved out of the financial services sector to join Clownfish.

    Sara is MD Matt’s right hand woman and has the challenging task of organising his busy schedule. You’ll usually find her in the office, but every now and then she loves changing her heels for boots and getting stuck in at events too.

    If Sara’s not at work, she’ll be enjoying brunch in various places around London; chilling with best friends Ben and Jerry; or up in Derbyshire getting some well needed country air and R&R.

    We first met Callum in November 2017, when he started as a Clownfish intern. He proved himself pretty useful so joined us full time soon afterwards.

    With a year at the coalface running events for our clients, he swapped his sat nav for a MacBook and stepped into his current role in event sales. It’s usually his dulcet Northern tones you’ll hear when you call.

    When he’s not at work Callum enjoys drum and bass music events and supporting Fulham FC.

    We first met Kieran when he was midway through his A-levels. A year later, with a new-found passion for events, he joined us permanently to become part of Clownfish’s journey.

    When it comes to looking after our kit and warehouse, Keiran is the man. You may see him out on the road or managing an event, but behind the scenes he is the person that makes sure all our equipment is in tip-top condition and ready for your next big occasion.

    When he’s not at work, he likes to spend his time in the gym… but keep your eyes peeled and you might spot him on a Boris Bike with his friends.

    Matt Blagdon

    Event Coordinator

    Matt has been a professional actor on stage and screen for many years, but he’s widely known for his notable role as Guy from the Over 50's Life Insurance Ad.

    He brings bucketloads of enthusiasm and personality to his work in events and is a true fun face of Clownfish.

    Matt is equally at home in hip East London as in the vastness of America; loves a homely roast dinner just as much as a buffet of all the world’s cuisines; and is happy kitted out in traditional smart suits or streetwear. He considers himself a cross-culture traveller and loves change in all it’s varieties.

    Amy joined Clownfish Events in early 2018 to look after our bookkeeping and financials. It’s her job to chase the team for invoices and keep on top of the spreadsheets!

    Although she’s now an accountant, she studied Performing Arts at university - so when she’s not working you’ll probably find her singing or listening to music. She also loves cycling, adventure travel and wining and dining in London.
