Lady Skye

The Face of the Show

Lady Skye isn’t your average Donkey, she is the face of the London Summer Event Show. With an over-the-top love of all things Summer, she’s the first one to sport a bikini and flip flops at the first glimpse of the sun: a true typical British tourist.

Favourite Ice Cream Flavour: I am very naughty when it comes to snacking and ice cream is my No.1 treat! I’m not fussy with the flavour, they all work for me. Tip: Add some crumbled ‘stick of rock’ to any ice-cream to make it pop.
Perfect Summer’s Day: Oh, where do I even begin? It’s my favourite time of the year. Hmmm but if I had to choose I’d say sitting on a British beach in the sun, eating ice cream and sticks of rock.
Favourite Summer Drink: It has to be Pimms – it’s so fruity and refreshing and everything about it reminds me of summer.
Favourite Aspect of the Show: I get to spend time with so many wonderful event venues and suppliers whilst sipping on some very fruity cocktails. I also just love that through my Show you can experience summer twice a year rather than once like everyone else!

Clare Escario

Show Director

Clare joined Story Events as Marketing Manager after gaining 5 years experience marketing large scale B2B international exhibitions for the building & interior industry at ITE Group plc. She is delighted to be now working for Story and relishes the opportunity to let her creativity loose on these special and unique events.

Favourite Ice Cream Flavour: Rocky Road – every bite is a surprise, you never get bored!
Perfect Summer’s Day: Dining alfresco with friends and family enjoying a nice cool drink with a view of water, whether it be the sea, a river, lake or a pool – I’m a foodie, a drinkie (is that a word?) and a water baby – so all three combined is bliss.
Favourite Summer Drink: I love sitting in the sun sipping on a glass of cool bubbles – I’m not fussy! Champagne, prosecco or cava all do the job, as long as there are bubbles, I’m sold!
Favourite Aspect of the Show: I love the creativity, fun and love that is poured into this Show from the events team – it’s no normal exhibition which makes it an absolute joy to be a part of.

Favourite Ice Cream Flavour: Honeycomb ice-cream is the best, it’s a classic and you can never go wrong.
Perfect Summer’s Day: Finding a sunny spot along the river thames with my favourite people and an Aperol Spritz in hand.
Favourite Summer Drink: Aperol Spritz!
Favourite Aspect of the Show: I love that no two Shows are the same. The team think outside the box to bring different themes, innovative ideas and exciting exhibitors every year. The atmosphere is always buzzing and it great to see all the exhibitors happy and excited to be at the Show.
