February 2022 News

After some much needed time off for our team, we are back feeling energised and excited about the year ahead. We did just want to take a moment however to reflect on the run up to the end of 2021 and celebrate the busy end of an unpredictable year. 

Despite covid, government restrictions and ever changing rules we kept up with the pace and were able to deliver consistently to our high standards even as things kept moving all around us.

The Showman Is Coming

This continues to be a popular show and performance request by both the public bodies and corporate clients. The Showman cast entertained at Carnfunnock for Halloween and also for a very appreciative audience at the Business Eye Awards.

The Wish Sisters

We were invited to create a new performance to tie in with Belfast City Council’s theme of ‘Once Upon A Time In Belfast’ and we came up with a fresh new girl group called ‘The Wish Sisters’.

With loads of energy, powerhouse vocals and plenty of personality, our Wish Sisters entertained the crowds from the balcony of The Fountain Centre. While their voices could be heard ringing out across the town, we also welcomed one sister who performed and brought Sign Language Interpretation to all the performances. The camping for the legal recognition of British Sign Language (BSL) is currently moving in a positive direction and there are hopes this could become realised before the end of the year.

This won’t be the last of The Wish Sisters and we look forward to seeing them later in the year.

Victoria Square

If you made a visit to Victoria square in the run up to Christmas you would have been hard pushed to have missed our performers. Numerous elves, dancers, fairy god-mothers and princes entertained throughout the building bringing cheer to the Merry & Bright Trail, Merry & Bright Brunches and to the general ambience of the building.

Walkabout Performers

In a new development this year, we began providing more walkabout style performers, shown here are a couple of examples with our coach men for a wedding, and our ‘flash, bang, wallop’ Paparazzi who brought so much fun and energy to this red carpet event. If you’d like to enquire about these kind of performers please get in touch.

Mirror Mirror Belfast

Peter Corry Productions were brought on board by Belfast City Council to provide their major outdoor animation programme for their festive season. Across 4 weekends we made it snow, had roaming giants in the city, pop up fairytale performers, community group involvement and a social media competition running. 

It was very satisfying to bring smiles to peoples faces of all ages and different walks of life after a tough year.

Christmas At The Cathedral

It’s been a long 2 years wait but we were very happy to finally return with a Christmas celebration with ‘Christmas At The Cathedral’ back at St Anne’s Cathedral. The reaction to the shows was so positive and it was great to see so many familiar faces back in the audience. For many people, this was a first time out to an event since the pandemic began so we worked hard with our front of house teams to make this as smooth and as safe an experience as possible even in the middle of changing restrictions. 

The results of our customer satisfaction survey confirmed this and we were warmed to receive such positive feedback. We take all comments on board and look forward to making this year’s shows even more enjoyable as we hope to see our industry continue to open up.
