Sarah Lamptey is one of a kind. Not only is she a music-mad, travel-crazy, eco-friendly vegan, she’s also a blimmin’ gorgeous and talented entertainment presenter, DJ and humanitarian.
The last couple of years have seen Sarah host her own weekly funk, soul and dance show on Panda Radio, produce and present content for music app, Whalebone and for Innovate UK and compere for Robert Smith’s Meltdown at the Southbank Centre, amongst others. She was the lead in commercials for Avon, Sainsbury’s, Aegon, Nokia, Anglian Windows and Bing, acted in a comedy pilot, developed her original doc ideas and campaigned to bring free public showers to London to enhance the lives of those who sleep rough. She DJs across London and has written for the Independent, Grazia, Metro Online and HuffPost. Who knows what the rest of 2020 will bring?
Some of her past experience, you ask? Well, there’s been plenty of radio work, chatting summer, Christmas and feel-good music across the country as a brand radio expert for Alba, First Choice and Pizza Hut, and loads of live hosting for MixMag, Smirnoff Sound Collective and Corona. Previous presenting for Southbank Centre comprised Women of The World, created to celebrate women (which Sarah cites as one of the highlights of her career) and Strive Fest, mentoring young adults to present alongside her onstage.
She pitched, produced and presented the television series ‘Back To The Future Sounds’ for London Live, hosted the online show, ‘Nobu Unplugged’, compered for music events at Nobu, The Arts Club and The Ritzy, presented backstage from Reading Festival for SUB TV interviewing artists including Papa Roach (teenage Sarah weeps), The Klaxons, and You Me At Six and she even starred in her first short film in Italy in 2015. Sarah LOVES a festival – having presented a range of festival coverage for Virgin TV Music-On-Demand interviewing both new and established musicians to kick off her presenting journey, *only a few* years ago now!
Sarah is a true professional: a hardworking, enquiring team-player who completely lights up a room and even more so, on camera.
