The Daubney Variety & Gala Agency was founded way back in 1918 by Harry Daubney, making us one of the oldest and longest trading entertainment agents in the UK. Always based in Derbyshire the Agency has had only 4 owners in its trading years.

The standards of service that were put in place almost 100 years ago, were of a higher standard than those found in many modern agencies today. Many of our professional event clients recognise that those high standards have been maintained into the 21st century by the current management team... Nick Calton and Rachel Stewart.

Our customer feedback is always encouraged….good or bad – we need to know honest opinions as we cannot see every act at every show.

We are a member of the Entertainment Agents' Association Ltd – The Entertainment Agents' Association Ltd was established in 1927 to represent and enhance the interests of entertainment agents in the UK who were willing to be bound by a strict code of conduct and professional ethics. Because of its members' dedication to high standards, it has become a most prestigious organisation.
