Hey everyone! My name is Luke and I am a part of the Fine Entertainments family! I am working closely with two of our biggest clients, Jay & Joss, so I thought I’d give you all a little introduction to me and a run-down of all of the fun we’ve been getting up to this month.
So, as I said, my name is Luke, I’ve just turned 22 and I am the creative assistant here for Jay & Joss. This means I have lots of fun helping create ideas and content for the show, I help manage their diary and busy schedule, help with a lot of admin work and sometimes will make the occasional coffee 😉
I have a long history of being within the performing arts industry starring in a range of shows like ‘Grease’, ‘Cinderella’, ‘Bugsy Malone’ and ‘A Dracula Spectacular’ to name a few. Then, when I got older, I secured my first professional contract at a highly reputable holiday resort in the UK. I’ve always had a passion for performing and Musical Theatre with some of my favourite current productions being Six the Musical, Mrs Doubtfire the Musical, The Play that Goes Wrong and Wicked.
Now, as you’ve learned a little bit more about me, it’s time to catch you up on all of the fun we’ve had at the Jay & Joss HQ this month!
We started off the month brainstorming ideas for the show that will be performed in 2024 and something VERY exciting for 2025 (watch this space!) There were many long days at the office so we thought we would have a little bit of renovation so we moved into a bigger workspace and added some personal touches to our desks. I’ve been loving buying lots of wax melts from my favourite company to make our office space smell incredible! They definitely make a difference helping boost our mood and creativity!
Jay & Joss have been working on an exciting project behind the scenes for a couple of months now so we’re very excited for everyone to see the end result! The boys have also been busy with private gigs where they have been hired to companies offices and peoples parties, to add an extra sparkle to their events.
My birthday was towards the end of month so we all had an amazing night out watching the incredible Cirque Du Soleil Alegria at the London Palladium! It was such a spellbinding night watching such talented performers show off their skills, they were really inspiring and we highly recommend you go see the show if you get the chance.
I also spent some time in my hometown, Durham, so I could see my family and friends which was lovely as I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like to because I’m now based 3 hours away from home. We went for a delicious carvery and let our hair down with a couple of drinks.
Dinnertime has been fun this month as I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting with some tasty home cooked meals, to tour with on the road! Some of my favourite things to make have been hunters chicken, pasta with hidden cheese meatballs and a classic Sunday roast. Personally, I have quite a sweet tooth so our homemade sticky toffee pudding with ice cream was definitely my favourite!
Maybe one day we’ll create our own Jay & Joss cookbook… Who knows 😉
As you can see, it’s been a jam-packed month full of lots of exciting things! Check back next month so see what we’ve been up to, there’s a lot planned and we think you’ll love what we have lined up!
