Touring SPRING/SUMMER 2022

Sandi’s National Trevor Tour is rescheduled to Spring/Summer 2022 due to Covid 19 restrictions.


Thanks for bearing through this with patience. It remains a perilous time for the live performance industry, so we are grateful for your continued support. Sadly, we have had to move the tour to 2022, but I am so excited to return to live audiences with a remixed version of National Trevor. When we finally do get together in 2022 – it’s going to be a blast!

If you have tickets to the 2021 shows your venue will contact you directly.  Thank you for holding on to your tickets if you are able to do so. We will publish the new dates below as they are confirmed.


Sandi Toksvig is taking her hilarious smash-hit one-woman National Trevor show back on the road.

Sandi realises some people harbour an ambition to be a National Treasure but following a misunderstanding with a friend has decided instead to become a National Trevor – half misprint, half Danish comedian, novelist, actor and broadcaster.

Expect tall stories, fascinatingly funny facts, really silly jokes, a quick fire Q&A and a quiz. Don’t expect tap-dancing, leotards or a forward roll.

‘Laden with laughs’

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Sandi was brought up around the world in Europe, Africa and the United States. She began her comedy career at Girton College, Cambridge where she found time to write and perform in the first all-woman show at the Footlights as well as achieve a first-class degree. Sandi is well known to UK audiences as a broadcaster having begun her career in children’s television playing Ethel in the long-running Saturday-morning show Number 73. Since then her television career has included celebrated series such as Call My Bluff (as regular team captain) and Whose Line Is It Anyway? She was also host of Antiques Master for BBC2 and 1001 Things You Should Know for Channel 4. In 2016, Sandi took over from Stephen Fry as host of ‘QI’, BBC2’s fiendishly difficult and hugely popular quiz. She also replaced William G. Stewart as the host of the popular teatime quiz Fifteen to One which made its comeback after 11 years in April 2014. In 2017 she and Noel Fielding became the new co-hosts of ‘The Great British Bake Off’. For a decade Sandi was a familiar voice for BBC Radio 4 listeners as the chair of The News Quiz which led to her induction into the Radio Hall of Fame. Sandi is passionate about live performance. She performed at the very first night of The Comedy Store in London and for many years was a member of The Comedy Store Players, an improvisational comedy team. Sandi conceived Playhouse Live for Sky Arts, producing specially commissioned live drama for television and for three years was both a writer for the series and the executive producer.

Much of Sandi’s time is devoted to writing and in 2019 she became president of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain. She has more than 20 fiction and non-fiction books for children and adults to her credit. Her latest novel ‘The End of the Sky’ was published in 2017. For the theatre Sandi co-authored the musical Big Night Out at the Little Sands Picture Palace Theatre (with Dillie Keane), the Shakespeare deconstruction The Pocket Dream (with Elly Brewer), Charity Begins for Playhouse Live, Bully Boy and Silver Linings. Her adaptation of Treasure Island reopened the Leicester Haymarket Theatre in December 2018 and early in 2019 her adaptation of Mamma Mia the Party opened at London’s 02. Sandi has written the Globe Theatre’s new family show Christmas at the (Snow) Globe with Jenifer Toksvig which will open Christmas 2019. Sandi is an activist for gender equality. In 2014 she co-founded the Women’s Equality Party. Sandi has received an OBE but is yet to be made a National Trevor.

Toksvig’s Almanac 2021:
An Eclectic Meander Through the Historical Year by Sandi Toksvig

Toksvig’s Almanac is intended merely as a starting point for your own discoveries. Find a fabulous (or infamous) woman mentioned and, please, go looking for more of her story. The names mentioned are merely temptations. Amuse-bouches for the mind, if you like. How I would have loved to have written out in detail each tale there is to be told, but then this book would have been too heavy to lift.
