With Tuesday 14 November fast approaching, the final touches for the Progressive Preschool Awards 2023 are being put in place – with the host of the event being confirmed.

Irish comedian and writer, Jarlath Regan (pictured) will take charge of the afternoon’s proceedings at the Royal Lancaster London later this month.

Jarlath has been performing stand up for over ten years. A finalist in both the BBC and Channel 4 New Comedy Awards, Jarlath also took home the title of Man of the Year in Comedy in Irish Tatler’s Men of the Year Awards 2017.
