Compère - PC Danny Mizon

Danny Mizon was a police officer in London for over 31 years finally retiring in December 2021 having spent his last 12 years with the Marine Policing Unit. He joined the orchestra’s percussion section in 1999 and appeared in uniform for many years as the orchestra’s regular Compère.

Twelve years ago Danny took over the role as the orchestra’s compere at the annual Proms Night Spectacular and Family Matinee Concert at Symphony Hall, Birmingham each December.

He was soon invited to Compère at Lichfield’s Proms in Beacon Park, a huge free event each September which currently attracts an audience of over 10,000. The orchestra had been headlining here for many years so it was a real honour for him to move to the front.

The character of PC Danny is now well known to the hundreds of young families that have attended our shows and they look forward to joining in his with his jokes and adventures each year.

The BPSO was always proud to have a serving officer, in uniform, as Compère and is looking forward to his new non-uniformed guise as an ambassador for both the BPSO and the police service.
