Steve 'interesting' Davis to host the Multimodal Awards

We are delighted that Steve has agreed to host this years Multimodal Awards.  Steve`s likeable nature coupled with his dry sense of humour and catalogue of hilarious anecdotes will make for a very entertaining evening.

Steve Davis lists as his most important wins six World Championships, six UK Championships and three Masters. Steve turned professional in 1978 and just three years later he was ranked Number 1.

He was the top player in the eighties and was the first to make a ratified maximum break in a major tournament when he had a break of 147 against John Spencer in the Lada Classic at Oldham, Greater Manchester on 11 Jan 1982. In his prime, Steve Davis was like a machine, rarely making mistakes.

He became known as Steve 'interesting' Davis, as his error-free style contrasted sharply with the likes of Jimmy White and Alex Higgins, who were great potters of the ball, but lacked Davis's disciplined approach.

Steve has written a book on chess, and has been seen playing poker on television along with the likes of Stephen Hendry.

In December 2009, he was co-opted on to the board of the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association, at the same time as Barry Hearn became the new chairman. In April 2010 Steve Davis surprised many people by beating John Higgins to reach the quarter-finals of the World Championship although he didn't manage to get into the semi-finals.

Steve is also a regular DJ on radio in Essex and did a set at the 2016 Glastonbury festival, playing techno, electronic and IDM (Intelligent Dance Music).




NorthEnd is a five-piece band of likeminded, musically influenced professionals, who play and perform for pleasure to off load the pressures of the working day.

In January 2018, due to requests to be heard before being booked, NorthEnd went into Steinway Studios of Fulbeck, to record a rough four-track demo. Eleven hours and 56 takes later, Rawcut had been created, a complete sixteen track album.
