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!

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.
