About Me

Things To Do Guernsey is the brainchild of local concert and event promoter Karen Solway. 


TTDGSY was founded in 2008 when Karen returned to Guernsey after living in the United States for 5 years.

Determined to get back into island life Karen decided what Guernsey really needed was a fun new way of meeting people. TTDGSY organises original socialising and networking events designed to enrich your social and cultural calendar while enabling you to meet other professionals in a friendly environment.  


So whether it’s concert promotion, corporate entertainment or networking events TTDGSY has a simple equation....

Fun + Friends = Lasting Memories

Previous Events

Katherine Jenkins

Katherine Jenkins was here to kick off Guernsey’s 65th Liberation Anniversary Celebrations in a concert at Beau Sejour, 

Miss Jenkins, was accompanied by the full 32-piece National Symphony Orchestra (NSO), sang a combination of classic and contemporary songs from her repertoire and the NSO also performed a number of pieces of their own.


Defending the Caveman

image6

Defending the Caveman is a hysterically funny Broadway show that looks at men, women and why the battle of the sexes is still going strong. Hilarious insights on contemporary feminism and masculine sensitivity. Defending the Caveman mines the common themes in relationships that go straight to the funny bone.

Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra

Jools and his orchestra were not alone when they took to the stage  – Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall will be guest vocalists for the two nights along with special guest Marc Almond of Soft Cell.

Jools was also joined in Guernsey by his former Squeeze colleague Gilson Lavis who, in 1987, became a founding member of The Jools Holland Blues Band.  That band has grown and metamorphosed into the 20-piece Rhythm & Blues Orchestra 

Snooker Legends

image8

Legends such as former World Champions Dennis Taylor, John Parrott, Cliff Thorburn and UK Champion John Virgo, Jimmy White, the “Whirlwind”!.  

  

John Virgo called on members of the audience to perform some trick shots, our very own Sir Geoffrey Rowland making a pot he will never forget.

We had an unforgettable night of nostalgia, fun and snooker, snooker legends... the legends were back on the baize.  

Ruby Turner

image9

"Soul, Gospel, and R&B : Ruby Turner is truly the genuine article. Blessed with a voice that can breathe life and meaning into any song, whether it be a passionate ballad or a fast groove"

The Straits

image10

The Straits (basically The Dire Straits but without Mark!)  bought back to life the original band’s music live on stage.   Former Dire Straits members were joined by world class musicians Steve Ferrone, Terence Reis, Mick Feat and Jamie Squire perform the band's greatest hits, a much loved catalogue of unforgettable songs. Songs from the classic albums Dire Straits (1978), Communiqué (1979), Making Movies (1980), Love Over Gold (1982), Brothers In Arms (1985) and On Every Street (1991).  classics including Money For Nothing, Sultans of Swing, Walk of Life, Romeo and Juliet, Brothers in Arms, Private Investigations, Solid Rock, Tunnel of Love, and many more.
