Lena Hall is a Broadway star, Grammy-nominated singer and professional actor. But in 2020 she launched her Lena Hall Virtually Live shows and, in turn, she became a virtual event organiser, producer, technician, performer and, with a little help from Ticket Tailor, an expert at selling tickets for virtual concerts. A very 2020 career change if we may say so! Lena kindly gave us some of her time to tell us about the last year and how virtual events came to the rescue, for her, but also her eager community of Zoom fans!Read More

Ever had one of those moments where a conversation with friends has been so side-splittingly hilarious that one of you’ve enthusiastically declared: ‘we should SO turn this into a podcast!’?
It’s a pretty common utterance among witty, like-minded buddies these days, but rarely does the ‘let’s put this in front of an audience’ sentiment come to anything other than a beer-fuelled pipe dream.

In normal times the venue has a long list of uses and events, but post-lockdown, they knew exactly what the local community wanted most…Read More
These retro theatres are a classic part of American film culture and were a staple of post-war entertainment, with over 4,000 theatres in the US by the 1950’s. This tailed off down to as low as 317 theatres in 2019, but even before the pandemic hit business was starting to boom again as an appetite for a nostalgic night out was coming back into fashion. As the lockdown eases, the appeal of being able to stay in the safety of your own car whilst enjoying a night out is an obvious attraction.

Who can blame him!

Running a festival seems like a tough task, but when you are creating multiple immersive experiences throughout the year, you really do have to know what you’re doing.
