Leah Marks, Voice Actor and Broadcaster

I'm the voice of the BBC's Civilisations augmented reality app and presented BBC Radio 4's "To Rent or Not To Rent". I've appeared in several Radio 4 plays, and can also be heard reading the news on BBC Radio Manchester and BBC 5Live

My notably warm and deep voice - RP with optional Manchester - has been used by BBC Inside Out North West, ITV's Loose Women, Aardman, The British Red Cross, Longleat Safari Park, Asda, and the V&A among many others.  To use it for your project, get in touch for a chat.
