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!

After a long day at work the thought of relaxing to enjoy the ballet at The Place, Oakengates Theatre, in Telford, was a comforting one. Of course, not before fighting through rush hour traffic, rushing to cook something vaguely edible, eating as much as I could of the vaguely edible food, hot-footing it to the theatre and hunting for a car […]

“Everybody has their level” said Mr Knightley – and at Theatre Severn the performance of Emma was on the highest level. I’d imagined a stage of antique furniture, big floral dresses and the Queen’s English – but what I enjoyed in the Walker Theatre could not have been further from that.  The intimacy of the venue, the simplicity of the stage and the […]

It was my first experience of heading into town on the dark Winter nights as I ventured out to see Baroque by Candlelight at Theatre Severn. I really enjoy watching opera and when I spotted this on the Theatre Severn line-up for 2015 I was eager to see it. When I review opera my reviews are always a little different […]

By Rhea Alton For many the Marriage of Figaro is the greatest opera ever written…or so the internet tells me. Mozart wrote it when he was 29 years old, an opera that uses comedy and pathos to highlight aristocratic power – a hot topic on the eve of the French revolution. For me The Marriage of Figaro was my first […]

By Kirsty Smallman Being a mother to a four-year-old and a two-year-old my husband and I can’t pass any Peppa Pig toys or promotional material without an “I want” from one of them. So when producers of Peppa Pig’s Big Splash live show announced it was arriving at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn I knew it was a show I would not […]

By Lorna McCann I don’t get the chance to go out much these days as I’m sure is the case with most parents who have young children. So, when Sofood! announced they were going to host a pop-up Italian night on February 28th it seemed like the perfect excuse to draft in the babysitters and join the rest of the […]

Well, my first visit to the opera was a success. I really enjoyed it and Katherine Jenkins can be safe in the knowledge that people of all shapes and sizes were alongside me in the seats at Theatre Severn so Shrewsbury is sharing the opera with all genders and all ages. I went in with a mind full of Julia […]

Say “the circus” and people think of children but in fact I would estimate 50 per cent of the audience at The Place in Oakengates, Telford were there without the younger generation on Saturday night to watch the UK tour of The Moscow State Circus. We risked the evening performance with a four year old and a two year old […]

Christmas officially arrived for me today as the first panto performance of the season kicked off at The Place in Oakengates, Telford. As a family with a three-and-a-half-year-old and a 20-month-old, we joined hundreds of schoolchildren from across the county to watch Cinderella. With flamboyant costumes and a show packed full of quality singing and dancing including a special song […]
