Gavin Drake

Gavin Drake is a writer and broadcaster with almost 30 years experience. He has also worked extensively in PR and media relations and is currently employed as Director of Communications for the Anglican Communion.

He has extensive experience of reporting from a wide variety of contexts, from international political summits to commemorations of significant military anniversaries; and from church Synods to royal engagements.

His recent work includes the exposure of the evangelist Tony Anthony’s fantasy auto-biography, which resulted in his charity being removed from the membership of the Evangelical Alliance before its trustees closed it down.

Until her untimely and unexpected death in January 2017, Gavin was married to Jill Saward, the campaigner and advocate for victims of sexual and domestic violence. He has vowed to continue her work in speaking out to support victims and survivors.

He is the pitch-side announcer at Walsall Football Club and has acted as host and compère at conferences, dinners and comedy nights.
