Sarah Lamptey is a passionate and ambitious entertainment presenter, DJ and social activist.
She was most recently seen hosting Crisis’s annual Christmas service in December 2020. In warmer times, a few months prior, she fronted Greenpeace’s virtual festival, Action All Areas, which celebrated fifty years of Greenpeace and Glastonbury. She delivered interviews via Zoom with Baaba Maal, Denai Moore, Liss and others. She also presented King’s Cross’s new development video and hosted The Dare Skywalk attraction film at Tottenham Hotspur, late last year.
Her media career began as a traffic and travel presenter for Radio Jackie FM over ten years ago, and Sarah’s love of music launched her to present a range of TV festival coverage for Virgin TV Music-On-Demand from 2012. She then pitched, produced and presented the television series ‘Back To The Future Sounds’ for London Live in 2014, hosted the online show, ‘Nobu Unplugged’, compered for music events at Nobu, The Arts Club and The Ritzy, and interviewed from Reading Festival for SUB TV.
Sarah thrives hosting in live environments, leading her to work with MixMag, Smirnoff Sound Collective and Corona Sunsets, before presenting for Southbank Centre’s Women of The World, created to celebrate women, and Strive Fest, mentoring young adults to present alongside her onstage.
From 2017, Sarah hosted her own weekly funk, soul and dance show on Panda Radio, produced and presented content for music app, Whalebone and for the technology department, Innovate UK, and compered at Robert Smith’s Meltdown at the Southbank Centre. Brand partnerships comprised Volvo, Sonos, Aegon, FaceTime and presenting JBL’s Facebook live-stream to 450k viewers.
In 2018, she interviewed music stars on the red carpet for ITN at the Jingle Bell Ball. Her radio work ran alongside her television pursuits, as she chatted summer, Christmas and feel-good music across the country as a brand radio expert for Alba, First Choice and Pizza Hut.
One of her major loves is finding new music from around the world and since 2019, Sarah has DJed for Hospital Club, Oblix at the Shard, St. Pancras Hotel, Swingers, Prince of Wales and various festivals, with the aim of uplifting whomever hears her play. This summer, she released a DJ mix for Monkey Shoulder, “aiming to splash some colour up the grey walls of 2020”.
Alongside presenting, Sarah is a successful model and has secured commercials for Avon, Sainsbury’s, Aegon, Nokia, Anglian Windows, Bing and RapidLash, acted in immersive game, ‘Not for Broadcast’, and written for the Independent, Grazia, Metro Online, HuffPost and Big Issue.
In 2018, she began her campaign for free showers to enhance the lives of London’s homeless. This resulted in her winning Change Maker of the Year Award from JustGiving in October 2019, for her homeless project, ShowerBox, and she continues to dedicate her life to helping others.
Sarah is a hardworking creative with a zest for adventure and a yearning for new challenges. She lights up a room, and even more so, on camera.
