Previous World Seniors Snooker Champion, Willie Thorne is one of the UK's leading after dinner speakers, auctioneers, hosts & MCs. His playing career has been showered with success, with a total of 14 tournament victories worldwide "The Great WT", as he is affectionately known, was a regular in the Top 16 World Ranking players for well over a decade.

Willie is the World Record holder of the highest number of 147 breaks in the history of snooker (190) earning him the nickname "Mr Maximum". However, first and foremost Willie has established himself as one of the great characters of the game for over twenty-five years.
