Liam's impressive career includes national and international stage performances with Mind the Gap, one of the UK's leading disability arts organisations. Since 2015, he has become a familiar face on the popular television series Coronation Street, where he has endeared himself to fans with his compelling portrayal of Alex Warner.

From 2014 to 2017, he toured internationally with "Contained," a dynamic performance exploring the lives of learning-disabled artists. His earlier work includes the 2013 production of "Treasure Island."


Beyond his acting career, Liam is also a trained facilitator, delivering a wide range of workshops that empower and inspire participants. His commitment to advocacy is evident in his role as an ambassador for MENCAP, a leading charity for people with learning disabilities. Liam frequently speaks at conferences, sharing his experiences and championing the rights and talents of learning-disabled individuals.


At the upcoming event, Liam Bairstow will be joining Christine Talbot on stage to present the Charitable Excellence Award. This award holds special significance, as the recipient will not only be recognised for their outstanding charitable contributions but will also become the designated charity for 2025.


We eagerly anticipate welcoming Liam to our stage and are confident that his presence will bring a unique and inspiring touch to the ceremony. His dedication to his craft and his advocacy work make him an exemplary figure, and we are honoured to have him as part of our event.
