Entertainment - Robbie Glen

Robbie Glen


Robbie Glen is a former prison Governor, and recognised as one of the finest after dinner speakers in the UK.

Robbie has a rare gift for making people laugh, and is a great favourite on the after- dinner circuit. With hilarious tales of his “time in prison”, a dry Scottish wit and brilliant timing Robbie is a man for any occasion.

His versatility has seen him speak at business lunches in the Eiffel Tower, Vancouver, a St Andrew’s Day Ball in Singapore, at Burns Supper in Cairo, Calgary and Edmonton and at conference dinners in a Bierkeller in Frankfurt and a wine cellar in Lisbon.

The great Scottish writer William McIlvaney based his story, “The Prisoner” in his book of short stories, “The Walking Wounded” on Robbie after he visited him in Dungavel prison.

Over the years, Robbie has spoken at many prestigious dinners, including Variety Club Tribute Dinners for Lord Richard Attenborough, Jimmy Logan, Alistair McCoist, and a Lord's Taverners Tribute Lunch for Sir Harry Secombe.

He has twice entertained at Variety Club of Gt Britain Golfing Society Dinners and the Props lunch in London.
