Josh has had the events 'bug' ever since launching his first Festival as a teenager, which was sponsored by Virgin Trains and Coca Cola. Since then, he has worked at numerous major Festivals across the UK, and within a venue at a touring house theatre.
After completing an Events Management Degree, Josh became Event Manager at Mind Body Spirit Festival, one of the UK’s longest running consumer exhibitions (est. 1977). He was quickly promoted to Event Director, and again to Managing Director in 2017. In 2022, Josh became the owner of the business. During his time, he has overseen the successful launch of Mind Body Spirit Festival at the NEC, the return of the flagship London Festival to Olympia London, and has introduced major sustainability and inclusivity commitments. MBSF has also seen a huge growth as an independent promoter, now organising numerous concerts, conferences and book tours as part of its overall growth strategy.
Josh is always looking for ways to bridge the gap, asking those difficult questions to make events more successful, accessible and inspiring for all.
