What's happening?

We are based in the lovely county of Shropshire and although we work with clients in a wide range of surrounding counties, and virtually with businesses across the UK, we love where we live and love to shout about it.

Shouting about things is really our bag so this is the page where we tell you what our clients have been up to, what's happening in Shropshire, what's happening with J&PR - and of course our advice and tips!

For those who know me will be shocked at this next sentence. I took 45 minutes out of my day to relax, stop still and switch my mind off! (Little did I know we would all have plenty of opportunity to do this in lock-down in the weeks following my visit to Shropshire Floats!) A 30 minute drive to Myddle […]

After arriving back from an adrenaline-fuelled week at Duinrell water and theme park in Holland, the Smallman family, including their two boys aged 8 and 10, were looking for their next thrill. As Kirsty explains… Thankfully WaterWorld in Stoke-on-Trent had just opened its doors to the new slides in the new area of Tornado Alley – the place which boasts […]

An international best-seller + top television actress + opening night = standing ovation at Theatre Severn. Enough said really but I’ll give you a little bit more because The Girl on the Train at our brilliant theatre in Shrewsbury certainly deserves it. (Brought to you here in Shrewsbury before the West End!) The pre-theatre dinner conversation included “Have you read […]

Every year Theatre Severn gives us so many opportunities to get the family together and mark Christmas with a show! And as well as the hugely popular annual pantomime (you can already buy tickets for next year’s Aladdin!!) we also get a smaller scale Christmas-themed production in the Walker Theatre – which in 2018 was Santa’s Elves and the Shoemaker. […]

You can’t stop the beat in Shropshire as Get Your Wigle On present a high energy version of the Broadway musical Hairspray at Theatre Severn this week. A crowd full of support for the local actors, singers and musicians enjoyed a bold and fun opening night last night – which ended with a dance for all the audience. Robyn Marsh […]

Christmas is coming and Theatre Severn has an extra treat in store for families with Santa’s New Sleigh showing in the run-up to the big day. It’s a smaller scale production than Cinderella, the panto which is drawing the crowds over the festive season, but the Walker Theatre offers a more intimate occasion with fantastic audience participation. Dibs and Sprocket […]

Every year I say it and the following year I am proved wrong! Shrewsbury Theatre Severn’s panto always seems to be the best it possibly could be but Evolution Pantomimes owned by Dawley boy Paul Hendy and his wife Emily and producer and director Brad Fitt have done it again! A wonderful, talented, totally jaw dropping production of Cinderella. I […]

The workshop of a Shropshire car garage seems an unusual venue for a classical music concert. But the guests to the Bridgnorth Sinfonia performance at David Dexters in Bridgnorth did not seem to mind at all! The orchestra performed a range of music from the classic to the more modern, for which they welcomed singer Andy James to join them. More […]

Nobody can help but smile when your son – grinning with his two front teeth missing – runs out of the theatre and into the arms of his nanny and asks “do you do naked yoga nanny?” Yes we’d been to Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury and watched the hilarious production of David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny. I’m sure you’ve seen plenty […]
