Centre Stage

Arts, Events and Festivals

As well as representing the arts, we tap into our own creativity too and create and curate our own cultural events and festivals – often aligned to a good cause!

In the past thirteen years, our arts and cultural activities have engaged, entertained and inspired. They’ve provided a platform for new talent and brought household names to new and unlikely audiences. What’s more, they have had an economic impact of almost half a million pounds.

From stand-alone festivals to animating high-profile sporting events, we have organised and hosted danceathons, theatre, comedy, puppet shows, pop and classical concerts, visual art exhibitions and commissioned new musical scores.

Clair & Ann from Cause UK have helped my new company to significantly target a wide audience base for our series of outdoor concerts. Their attention to detail and “can do” attitude has meant we have been able to turn around exciting PR stunts with maximum impact, significantly increasing our sales and event awareness. Thank you!

Thank you so much Clair for raising the profile of brass and the importance of its heritage in our communities.  Also, the benefits for young people in terms of aspirations and seeing the sheer joy on their faces! For our fledgling brass players to play alongside their older peers and Grimethorpe Colliery Band … then to see it all so professionally portrayed on The One Show, made everyone in our school community immensely proud.
