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!

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 […]
