define plummy?!?!
It sounds more like the accent widely spoken around Home counties, as of Hugh Grant.

Sounds more like you are speaking while having "plum" in your mouth & hence the name "plummy".

I wouldn't say I have a plummy accent as such but I am always told that I sound fairly posh. I think it is that I just don't have much of an accent so I sound posh to people who do lol.

Won't you feel a bit fake though i.e. not letting yourself speak naturally but havin it put on etc
What you said makes sense, but then again, I'm quite willing to take this blame of being "fake", as what matters most to me is to have this accent, as few jobs often ask for having an "accent", OTHER THAN the regional Midland accent (as there seems NOT much demand for such accent, I'm afraid).

Couple of my friends are in Multimedia course & were sent to do recording for BBC as a part of their coursework. There they came across that News readers on BBC have to have RP accent.

Not that I'm saying, I fancy using this accent as a News reader (however, working with a weather girl, would do no harm, I should imagine), but that was merely an example of job asking for an accent.

I've been in touch with my local Citizens Advice Bureau & lets see if they can be of any help in providing me with the information, I need.

Furthermore, I'm also in touch with few theatre, as if they can be possibly provide me with any help/contact.
