Social Chain founder and BBC’s newest and youngest ever Dragon, Steven Bartlett brings Europe’s No.1 Business podcast to the stage for his ‘intimate confession’.
Following his debut sell-out performance at Manchester’s iconic Albert Hall, The Diary of a CEO Live now comes to Newcastle for one night only.

The show is produced by New Frame Productions and directed by Stephen Whitson, whose Associate Director credits include West End productions Hamilton and Moulin Rouge. Accompanied by the breath-taking House Gospel Choir, Steven will take you on a journey of how self-belief can triumph over adversity. This mesmerising and immersive experience, featuring new exclusive content and unexpected twists and turns set to the music and backdrop of Steven’s life, is guaranteed to entertain and inspire.

House Gospel Choir’s ​live sets create a fusion of the biggest house, gospel remixes and garage classics, making every performance an unforgettable and unique experience. Having performed with the likes of Loyle Carner, Emilie Sande, Beverley Knight, Gregory Porter, Tom Jones and Kylie Minogue at various TVs, Radio and award shows, House Gospel Choir have taken these seemingly disparate musical moments and shown us the connection. 

Steven acts as a speaker, investor, author and content creator, he’s released a Sunday Times bestselling book ‘Happy Sexy Millionaire’ and hosts a weekly no.1 Business podcast – The Diary of a CEO – from his East London studios. This year, Steven has made history as the BBC’s youngest Dragon in the 19th series of Dragon’s Den representing a new generation of entrepreneurs from disadvantaged and under-represented backgrounds.
