Martin Toal - 'the Wembley Tenor'  


Manchester Anglo-Irish tenor Martin Toal is a top class entertainer with a uniquely versatile operatically trained voice, very much in demand for major sporting, corporate, concert and charity events. Martin has sung national and operatic anthems at all the major UK sporting venues including Wembley and Twickenham in London, the  Principality Stadium in Cardiff, and Old Trafford and The Etihad stadiums in Manchester. Each year, Martin is invited to perform at very high profile events including at the Grosvenor hotel, Park Lane, London for the St George's Society, at Wembley stadium for the National League play-off final, and at sports themed corporate events throughout the UK. Martin's clients have included the FA, the LMA, Coutts Bank and entrepreneur Theo Paphitis, and his charity work has included performing for The Prince’s Trust, Wooden Spoon and the Lord’s & Lady Taverners. He has performed with some of the UK's top artists including sopranos Lesley Garrett and Laura Wright, and Ireland’s Chris de Burgh who described Martin’s voice as “phenomenal”. In 2009, he had the honour of performing and subsequently meeting Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Phillip Duke of Edinburgh at a special royal event in Lancashire. To many, he is known as "the Wembley Tenor" as he has performed at Wembley stadium over a dozen times including for the England football team, with England having won every game he has sung at without conceding a single goal!   His TV & radio credits include BBC1’s Inside Out, BBC2’s A Band for Britain with actor & presenter Sue Perkins, SKY News, SKY Sports news, BBC’s radio 2 and 5 live, and ITV's The Real Housewives of Cheshire where Martin famously ( or infamously! ) sang "Happy Birthday" to Sweetie the rabbit!
