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!

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 […]

As soon as I saw The Mousetrap was coming to Theatre Severn I knew I had to see it. Famous around the world for being the longest running show of any kind in the history of British theatre – clocking up nearly 25,000 performances – and it was heading to my home town! The Mousetrap is doing its first ever […]

As a child, my father often used to read be the Tales of Arabian Nights. I loved the idea of a story in a story in a story. Now Shifting Sands Theatre is re-telling the Arabian Nights tales with a comic twist at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn on May 5 at 8pm. The company has developed a reputation for creating a […]

By Rebecca Dutton We’ve been singing the theme tune to Peppa Pig ever since we got home! My little boy, who turned four today (Thurs) and I had a fantastic time at Peppa Pig’s Surprise at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn. I nearly cried watching his face as he sat spell bound by what was happening on stage. He joined in all […]

To be in a musical you have to be a fantastic actor and an excellent singer. But to be in Avenue Q you also have to be a brilliant puppeteer. And the whole cast at Theatre Severn last night were all three. I kept wondering whether I should be looking at the humans or the puppets – truth is, it […]

Taking kids to the theatre for the first time is always a nervous time. In my experience every child is different so you can never actually judge when they are the right age to have their first theatre visit – not very helpful I know…. But my experience at Theatre Severn on Sunday made me realise it can also make […]

This year’s panto Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs at The Place in Oakengates, Telford, was extra special as our boys knew some of their friends from school were performing. With Jeremy Edwards from Hollyoaks and Holby City taking the starring role as the handsome Prince Edward and Nicole Faraday of ITV’s Bad Girls and Emmerdale as evil Queen Grizelda […]

It had been a while since I had visited the theatre so I was particularly looking forward to an amusing Sunday evening at Theatre Severn. And while I wasn’t disappointed, I didn’t laugh quite as much as I expected to – more a smile every so often. The show is certainly fast-paced and action-packed but the one thing that grated […]

Surely it could not beat the previous Theatre Severn panto performances  – or could it? Once again we got in the festive spirit by visiting Theatre Severn to watch the panto – Dick Whittington this year and with two excited boys aged four and six in tow it was sure to be a great evening. With Brad Fitt as Dame […]

Henning Wehn is German. If you weren’t aware then (where have you been?) you will be very soon after the start of his latest show Eins, Zwei, DIY. And no one can blame the comedian for making the most of coming from a country with –allegedly – no sense of humour. And as he freely admits, he ‘German’s it up’ […]
