Toyah Willcox

Registration from: 11:30am

Lunch: 12:30pm

Nottingham City Business Club’s Christmas lunch 2022 had a record 130 guests in attendance, reflecting its reputation as a legendary party event.

Event Roundup

Club Vice-President, Terry Ellis, did a fantastic job stepping in for Ross Davies, new father to twin baby boys, Seb and Jude, and the star of the day, Toyah Willcox did not disappoint!

After welcome drinks, networking and magic by a fabulous magician, Roy Bond, Terry opened proceedings with a festive welcome to members and guests, followed by a delicious three-course dinner, festive games and a quiz.

Toyah had us all captivated with her inimitable personality and tantalising tales. From her days as one of the 80’s biggest female artists and star of cult movies, such as Quadrophenia, through to her ‘Sunday Lunch’ performances on YouTube with her husband, guitarist Robert Fripp, which have opened her up to a whole new generation of fans, her talk had it all! It certainly isn’t a “mystery” at all why this superstar has had such a long and varied showbiz career. Reinvention is the key, Toyah told us, and her final message… “We are all utterly unique. Get out of your comfort zone.” What an honour for her to join NCBC for our Christmas lunch 2022?!
