Stephen James Grindle
MD Showworld Ltd
I have been involved in the live entertainment game for 30 years. Now I have created ShowWorld an entertainment consultancy and booking agency.
My days of working in the circus, on the street, at outdoor arena events and variety shows has given me an education very few other entertainment providers can lay claim too.
As an Artiste, Agent, Live Action Director, show creator, deviser and producer I am perfectly positioned to provide you with the best acts available as I have a finite knowledge of all aspects of the entertainment business. Performance, artistic, managerial.
My name is Stephen Grindle (My friends call me Dingle. I supply, create and source modern and traditional, outstanding unique entertainment packages and shows as well as help organisations, companies and individuals to structure entertainment programs and build awe-inspiring shows and spectacles that fit your specific brief and budget.
It’s my desire – through my work, to deliver top end quality acts and artistes worldwide. I am also very keen to help build relationships within the entertainment communities and provide artistes with knowledge and support and of course work.
My unique blend of skills, knowledge and experience in the world of show and entertainment could be critical to your events success.
Where ever they are needed I bring together hand picked teams of excellent performers that are known and respected to provide professional stunning entertainment spectacles for audiences worldwide.
For the last 17 years my entertainment agency & consultancy business has been called DF Inc Ltd. After finding that the name was not so email friendly with which to promote the company in our industry, I created the brand you see here, ShowWorld Ltd. I think you will agree it is a lot more fitting for what I and the company provide.

With a gift for being able to contribute to and develop entertainment strategies, then translate the strategy into a Showworld workable action plans that deliver and manage the implementation.
You will often find me with my sleeves rolled up getting stuck into a project.
Me in a few words: Creative, Positive, Enthusiastic, Eccentric, Fun, Loyal, Life Lover.
