Sorry for the delay in replying. I would like to say a huge thank you for organising the Percussion and Boom whacker workshop for the West Wirral District All Sections camp at Bispham Hall camp site. All the groups eagerly awaited their session and were not disappointed. The feedback from leaders and children was all extremely positive. On behalf of West Wirral Scout district I would like you to thank the percussion team, I would highly recommend them to any group requiring a similar percussion session.

Kind regards

As I stood being serenaded by 2 opera singers and watching fire eating ladies and ice skaters I thought to myself….wow, look what can be done with a lot of enthusiasm, passion and creative thinking by people who care about the town

Margaret said thanks to me at one point last night but that thanks belongs to you

Well done and thanks again

Hi Anne

It was fabulous!

Conal was amazing, he really made our party. I would definitely want to use Conal again and would recommend him to others.
Everyone commented on how good he was.

Thank you so much for organising!

Katie Santus- Private Birthday Party.

I appointed Wigan Pier promotions to run this years ‘World Book day’ event at the Shopping centre. The event was extremely well organised and I was extremely impressed with the way all of the elements came together. Anne’s professional approach to ensure every little detailed was planned for ensured that the event was a huge success. All elements that were included in the original specification were considered and I would not hesitate in working with Anne again in the future.

“Hi Anne, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for organising the acts and bands for both Ironkids and Ironman UK. I have had fantastic feedback from athletes and spectators about both the acts and the bands. Donna (the face painter) and the Giant Games were extremely popular at the Ironkids race. The bands on race day were brilliant and they all seemed to enjoy themselves which was great to hear. Once again, thank you very much for being a part of Ironman UK. I will most definitely be in touch regards future Ironman events.”

“After wanting an act for my Husbands 40th birthday party, we wanted someone who was young and fresh, Wigan Pier got it spot on when they sent our act, I hadn’t listened to a demo so was worried that we might not like them, I had explained what I was looking for and they got it just right, we had a fantastic night and we would use them again if we organised another party.”

“I am the entertainment manager at Haydock Park Golf Club, and I have used Wigan Pier Promotions for the last 3 years. The professionalism of the company and the acts which they use are second to none. When dealing direct with Wigan Pier Promotions and the artists on the night, you get what you the customer wants with fantastic entertainment that suits the occasion. During the last 3 years I have used other agents and artists, but always return to Wigan Pier promotions. I regularly recommend Wigan Pier Promotions to the surrounding golf clubs.”

“I have used Wigan Pier Promotions for the last 3 years. The standard of the company and the acts which they use are 1st class you will always get a service that is best by far. Wigan Pier Promotions work hard to get what you the customer wants with the right price that suits the occasion. I have never been let down and would 100 per cent recommend them.”

“Hi Anne, Feedback from yesterday, everyone within the village thoroughly enjoyed the one man band very entertaining and we would highly recommend him. Thank you so much.”

“It is good to know that there are still agencies out there that are genuinely concerned for the needs of their venue.Having worked in both ends of the industry as an act and an agent you have the experience to apply your knowledge. It is great to work with someone who contributes thought and ideas and someone whose comfortable with thinking ‘outside the box’. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and long may our association continue.”

“I am the Licensee/Landlord of the Plough and Harrow in Shevington where I have been using Wigan Pier promotions exclusively for some time to provide all of our entertainment needs, I have found them to be flexible and professional. The on call service has meant i have never been left without entertainment, a first in this industry. I would be happy to recommend Wigan Pier Promotions to any organisation large or small. The extra effort given by the proprietor Anne Hurcombe to deliver a first class service means no other agency can compare.”

“Hi Anne, Just dropping an email and to update you on Matt Roberts who you recommended to sing at my mum’s 70th Birthday Party. Matt was professional, friendly and any requests required was no trouble. All my mum’s guests were pleasantly entertained and the music Matt chose to sing was brilliant. Matt has a great personality and is very talented. I/we would recommend Matt Roberts without any hesitation. Thanks again Anne for your help as well. Many thanks Vicky.”

“Your band was brilliant last night. I had one lady saying to me that ”it was the best entertainment at a Masonic function I have seen in 40 years”. Truly, truly class act. Made the night. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Also, can I say that John was so helpful and accommodating, what a great guy. Many thanks, Anne.”

“Anne Hurcombe is an avid supporter of Wigan Youth Zone.  She is a firm believer that the opportunities offered to the young people of the borough are changing their lives for the better.  When the decision to organise the Reet Good Beer Festival as a charity fundraiser Anne was a dead cert to seek advice on entertainment.  I had worked with Anne Previously and already had a great deal of trust.  As always Anne delivered.  She took time to look at every aspect of the event, from demographic, location, audience, timings and budget before offering advice and guidance on what entertainment would best suit.  Anne offered suggestions on bands, set contracts and event assisted with the running order.  The event was a huge success and I am confident that the musical line up played a vital role in attracting a broad audience in huge numbers.  I have no hesitation in recommending Anne.  From simple entertainment, such as children’s parties to complex events with multiple bands Anne will offer sound advice and contract acts with a price to suit all budgets.”

“Hi Anne, Wow – loved Vic and his beautiful girl – they were amazing and the guests loved the evening. Thanks yet again for organising a great night.”
