Well, everybody will tell you this “It all depends on you”. I also agree to that, but I will say; it depends on the type of the event, type, and age of your audience, overall show/event setup, and organizers expectations. I personally think an informal way of anchoring is best because you are open to trying more things with the audience. In informal anchoring, you can have fun with the audience, crack some random jokes, sometimes laugh at yourself or can do some gags (like awards show in India). But every show and event have different setting, audience, and expectation. Sometimes you need to a typical formal anchoring.
Yes, take an example. If you are hosting a farewell party of senior professor and a tribute ceremony for a veteran soldier then it is expected to be formal. Because the situation demands it. In this case, your audience is kinda disciplined, may not take humor sportingly, etc. Hence we have written this article to help you with how to write the best anchoring script in English for any function like farewell, teachers day, games, etc.
Let’s take another example; when you host an event sponsored by big sponsors then you need to call in their names various forms and after some intervals. After all, they have paid for the event with that intention. So, it depends on you as well as the type of event, age, and likes of audience and expectation of the organizer.
Here we are not telling you about tips and format for anchoring script and all. We have a written a separate article for that. Here we will try to write best formal/informal/funny/wacky anchoring script lines for your reference. Only you can judge what can be used for your anchoring speech. So let’s see how to write the best anchoring script in English.
How to Write the Best Anchoring Speech Script? (Best Lines)
Best Formal Anchoring Script Lines
Let’s take an example of a formal event like a farewell party, teacher day, annual day, sports day, independence or republic day, etc. Here you may like to start the event with a classic welcome note.
This is classic but the overused way to start an event. But it’s safe, if you are hosting an event for the first time then it’s better to be safe. Your audience might have heard it some many times that they will not give any attention to it. that’s the trade-off.
Good morning, respected chief guests, principal sir, teachers, staff members, and students. Myself < Your Name> from <Class> would like to welcome you all for the <event name>.
You can start your anchoring speech with a quote too. Make sure that that quote is relevant and from known personality from the same category of the event. Here is an example of teachers day or send off (farewell) event.
“A noble prize winner Malala Yousafzai said, “Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.“And for us, you are one of that kind”. You are not just a teacher for us, you were there for us when we had doubt on ourselves. You are like our friend and I know all the students out there will agree, you are like the second parent to us. Ladies and gentlemen, please have a big round of applaud for Prof. XYZ.

You can even start the event with a song. You should not try this method if you have bad singing skills. But if you are at least little good with your vocal cord then you should go for it. Sing a couple of lines related to the event. Let’s take an example here; mother day, republic day or Independence Day anchoring speech. These three are emotional topics, a well sung and a relevant song will connect you with the audience immediately.
“Main Kabhi Batlata Nahin, Par Andhere Se Darta Hoon Main Maa, Yun To Main, Dikhlata Nahin, Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon, Main Maa, Tujhe Sab Hain Pata, Hain Na Maa, Tujhe Sab Hain Pata, Meri Maa”. <take a pause after song>. A mother, a friend, a teacher, an inspiration, someone who will be always there for you, some who loves her children no matter what… a Mother. On Mother’s Day, I salute all mothers over this planet.

Best Informal Anchoring Script Lines
Here in this format, you have more liberty to engage with the audience by cracking random jokes or with having two-way communication with them. In an informal setting, the audience is in kinda relaxed mode. They expect some entertainment. I personally like informal anchoring. But here the game is in anchor’s hand.
He / She should have a sense of humor, able to take jokes at himself/herself. While doing an informal type of anchoring you just cannot mug up the script and jokes and expect your audience to crack at it. Fun and humor should be in you.
