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!



Party Night at the Lytham Proms!

10. 80s Prom Night and Jubilee House 2.8.13

I was in Lytham at the time having tea before going to the 80s night at Lytham Proms, on Lytham Green overlooked by Jubilee House.  It was great to glance Jubilee House from the Lytham Proms knowing that the planning permission was imminent and that the incongruous 1960s building that was Birkenhead House would soon rise majestically as Danbro’s new HQ Jubilee House and with apartments – a superb design that Lytham will be proud of.  It was great to work with the expert Design Team and also with Helen and Damian Broughton who created Danbro who are truly inspirational for what they have achieved.
