    About Gill

    Gill started her music career at Capital Radio, where her role was to promote on air, music events and festivals for the leading UK promoters of the time.  During this period Gill was charged with pulling together, along with her team, the 100,000 capacity Party in the Park at Hyde Park in 1998.

    Having employed a production company to work with on the project, and watching a world build from a green field site became something she wanted to learn how to do herself, so Gill took a massive step and left Capital to start her own events business, Entertee.

    Simultaneously, the Chief Executive of Capital offered Gill a 2 year deal to continue to project manage the event.

    In 2004, realising there was a gap in the market, Gill started, the now very successful Entertee Hire, with her son Reece.  This business supplies high quality fencing and ground protection to the festival industry.

    During the 20 years of Entertee, and many events later, Gill was asked to produce a new festival in Kent, the Hop Farm Festival, which was headlined by some incredible artists including Prince’s only ever UK festival appearance.

    Gill has now come full circle from promoting festivals in her radio days for promoters, to becoming a promoter and festival owner herself.  Using all the experience gained from her many years in the industry, she has applied this to the first ever Black Deer, a festival of Americana and Country music, that took place at Eridge Estate in June 2018.  It was an idea that became a reality, was really well received, and will be happening again in 2019.
