About Us

Wicked Events have been operating since 2000 and currently have over three thousand active volunteer stewards on our database.

Founder and Director

Prior to 2000, Sue Torres was one of four directors who for ten years ran Stroud Fringe Festival in Gloucestershire, UK dealing with among other things, budgets, bookings, councils, customers, tickets and traders.

Sue was also the dance co-ordinator of Roughshod Appalachian Cloggers and has performed at numerous festivals and events throughout the UK, Europe and USA so is very familiar with all sides of events. 

Although in the course of Sue’s work she has had sometimes to deal with serious problems, her ‘wicked’ sense of humour and calming influence has helped her through the stickiest of situations.
