Clifford J Hume

Actor - Director - Voice Over - Writer

Clifford is a retired actor, writer and director, known for the award-winning film Chance written and directed by Jake Graf. The 2015 film was the first chosen by the BFI and The British Council as part of the 'Five Films For Freedom'. In just ten days during the BFI Flare festival, Chance had over half of the 40 million plus views online and has been seen worldwide in festivals and special screenings winning over 40 awards.

He was one of the UK's leading Santa Claus impersonators and appeared on TV, stage, radio and corporate events all over the globe. From the familiar surroundings of London at Christmas to the deserts of Dubai!

Clifford also spent two-and-a-half years as Sir Topham Hatt, The Fat Contoller, for the very successful Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends.


2022 is go! Clifford will be back on stage this Christmas in The Santa Show at both The Compass Theatre, Ickenham and the Baylis Theatre, Maidenhead. Ticket details to follow.

He will also be returning to script-writing after taking some time out from that aspect of his career. Again, more news to follow.

Clifford is also returning to projects outside of show business but that have strong links to the arts - go to for details.

There is also a new YouTube Channel - The History Lord - and also TikTok too - please have a look and subscribe!

Thank you all for your continued support and we wish you all health and happiness!
