Behind the Scenes…

As sponsors of the Lytham Festival this year Danbro staff were invited to a “behind the scenes” look at the arena last night…trust me it looks a lot bigger from inside!

View from the stage!

The tour included the “green room” (where the performers sit just before going on stage), dressing rooms, the enormous stage and the VIP area.

 

 

Such a cool look!
Such a cool look!

 

Unfortunately it was a bit of a gloomy night weather wise but here’s a couple of the lads rockin’ the festival look!

The whole area looks great and there’s so much to do including plenty of choices when it comes to eating!

The catering staff will look after over 750 covers every night in the VIP area alone!  The menu this year has been tweaked to tie in with the theme of the evening…so the 80/90s night will be interesting!  But I can safely say if the canapés are anything to go by you are in for a treat!

 

Our thanks to Cuffe & Taylor for inviting us and showing us around!

See you over the weekend…look out for the Danbro Rock Choir performing on Sunday evening!

Danbro hosts Meet the Makers Networking Event

Danbro hosted a major Meet the Makers networking event last night in the run up to Lytham Festival.  The company’s impressive 250-capacity Green Room, housed in the rotunda of Jubilee House, was the venue for the champagne-and-canapes event, organised by Cuffe & Taylor.

This year’s Lytham festival could potentially boost the Fylde economy by more than £2m and the benefits extend along the Fylde coast and further afield.  The catchment for the audience is now international.

Peter Taylor, co-founder of Cuffe & Taylor, the organisers of the Lytham Festival paid tribute to Danbro for ‘sharing the vision’ and  helping facilitate a bill topped by big names such as Faithless, Fylde coast talent Rae Morris, Scouting for Girls and super group McBusted… among many more.

Danbro’s own community choir,  Danbro Rock Choir, will also perform at the festival in support to Tenors of Rock and share the stage with TOR for a number – as well as return for the traditional crowd pleaser Last Night of the Proms!

Damian Broughton, managing director of Danbro, talked of his own company’s vision for the future – and growth  from a 6’ x 6’ box room in Warton, to the impressive 66,000sq ft Jubilee House today. He also reiterated Danbro’s commitment to the local community.  “There’s a great spirit about Lytham and we’re proud and privileged to work here and  want to play our part in the local community.  When the opportunity to get involved in Lytham Festival, presented itself, we grabbed it with both hands. The festival now has national recognition and being a company that has clients all over the UK, this will help spread the word about the accounting, taxation and financial services that we can offer.”

A great evening!
