Promoter celebrates record year and looks forward to 2017

Music promoter Cuffe and Taylor says it is planning to take the UK by storm in 2017.

The Preston-based company has already announced plans for almost 150 nights of live entertainment and music and there are still more to come.

The huge calendar of events follows a massively successful 2016 which saw the company programme and promote close to 100 nights of live music and events across the UK watched by more than 360,000 people

Highlights included Rod Stewart’s record-breaking UK Hits Tour which sold more than 160,000 tickets, a nationwide theatre tour with Dame Joan Collins as well as tours with the Military Wives, Aled Jones and the Bay City Rollers.

In addition to touring Cuffe & Taylor also programmed and presented Lytham Festival, Greenwich Music Time, a string of high profile concerts at Scarborough Open Air Theatre, Tatton Park Concerts by the Lake, Betley Concerts, and the first live music events at Cumbria’s Cartmel Racecourse.

Artists performing across Cuffe and Taylor’s events included Bryan Adams, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Simply Red, James Bay, Seal, Tom Jones, Wet Wet Wet and Joe Bonamassa.

And with so much more planned for 2017, director Peter Taylor said it’s going to be a busy year.

Peter said: “This past 12 months has been absolutely phenomenal. We have worked with world class artists throughout the year and it has been fantastic.

“2017 is already looking pretty packed and sitting alongside our well-established events such as Lytham Festival, Greenwich Music Time and the increasingly popular events we programme at Scarborough Open Air Theatre, we are also increasing the number of tours we work with.

“It is an exciting time for the company and we are very much looking forward to the year ahead.”

The next 12 months will see Cuffe & Taylor present tours with Sir Cliff Richard, Shakin’ Stevens, Marti Pellow, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe, One Hundred Voices of Gospel and a the 51-date Remembering Fred show celebrating the life of the great Fred Astaire through song and dance.

Individual shows and festivals will see them working with the likes of Jeff Lynne’s ELO, Bryan Adams, Olly Murs, Jess Glynne, Madness, The Beach Boys, The Charlatans and George Benson.

Peter added: “Team Cuffe and Taylor will be travelling the length and breadth of the country throughout 2017 and we cannot wait.

“It’s going to be a fantastic year for the company and we look forward to presenting many, many memorable nights of live entertainment and music. “This year we sold more than 360,000 tickets so let’s see what 2017 brings.”
