Brian Shaw

About Brian Shaw


I trained at Vocaltech vocal school in London and then at Central School of Speech and Drama. I am an actor by profession and an accomplished singer and entertainer.


I have been proud to receive many awards throughout my career including "Care Home Entertainer of the Year" and the "National Vintage Award for musical performance".

All the shows I perform are written specifically for the care industry with fun and nostalgia at the core of every show. Nothing beats the feeling you get when you hear a song that reminds you of your childhood or has a special memory for you.

I love what I do and I hope that you will too. x

"Brian, you have been coming to us for over 6.5 years,and I can honestly say everyone loves you! It's not just about the singing, It's the jokes :-) and yes, stories of Dame Vera Lynn and all the wonderful stories. Every care home should have a Brian Shaw .

Great value for money, all residents never want him to finish. People who live with dementia sing all the songs love the banter and the smiles. Warmth and care is genuine. I can never thank you enough for what you bring to our home."
