Peter Grant - Host
Main Stages Sat All Day!
Peter Grant joined the Richmond Live family in 2000. As a non-musician he stuck out like a sore thumb, although he did once try his hand at singing in an open mic night at the cricket club - best forgotten!
When it was felt the festival was ready to take the next step - that of bringing a big headline act to The Batts, Peter's connections as a broadcaster resulted in him being able to identify potential artistes.
The first star performer he helped secure was Mike & the Mechanics frontman PAUL CARRACK, followed by MARILLION, Deacon Blue's RICKY ROSS and 70s singer songwriter DEAN FRIEDMAN each paving the way for the Richmond Live we love today
