Bookings in the first half have certainly been varied. In the comedy world there has been a definite shift to more female talent, and we've been delighted to be doing much more work with acts such as Zoe Lyons, Katherine Ryan and Sara Pascoe. The World Cup inevitably had an influence on events in June and July, with the likes of Kevin Keegan and Steve Claridge appearing at client screenings of games, and we were particularly proud to secure Sir Geoff Hurst for the Semi Final!
Bands are a mainstay of the circuit, however the number of bigger names out has surprised, with the likes of Billy Ocean and Midge Ure delighting clients, while on a more serious note, Caryn Franklin discussed emerging retail trends for another client. The second half has a lot to live up to, but indications would suggest the variety will continue.
