Harrison Drury helps major concerts go ahead

A North West law firm has played a key role in helping a series of summer concerts go ahead featuring stars like Cliff Richard, Tom Jones, Alfie Boe and Michael Ball.

The licensing team at Harrison Drury solicitors successfully secured a licence for concert promoters Cuffe and Taylor to hold two outdoor concerts at Walcot Hall in Shropshire.

Alfie Boe and Michael Ball performed together at the Georgian stately home on June 20 as part of their nationwide ‘Together Again’ tour, while Cliff Richard also played at the historic venue the following evening as part of his ‘Just Fabulous Rock ‘n Roll’ tour.

The team were also successful in allowing Cartmel Racecourse to increase its capacity to 20,000 people for a concert by Tom Jones on June 30. The Welsh artist returned to Cumbria after 50 years to perform a selection of hits on the course’s most popular race day.

David Edwards, head of Harrison Drury’s licensing team, said: “Bringing large artists to outdoor venues can present a number of challenges. Our role is to ensure these concerts meet all the necessary legal requirements while allowing our clients to make them a commercial success.

“It’s been another successful summer for our licensing team, working with some of the UK’s best outdoor venues, promoters and artists.”

Jason Cotillard, commercial director at Cuffe & Taylor, said: “We’ve built our brand by focusing on bringing big artists to unique and unusual outdoor venues. These were our first concerts at Walcot Hall, which proved to be very fitting for Alfie and Michael’s show, as well as Cliff’s tour which has celebrated some of the UK’s most beautiful castles and historic locations.”

Jonathan Garratt, managing director of Cartmel Racecourse, added: “By increasing capacity for Tom Jones we were able to reach an extra 2,000 people. Tom’s show was very well received by our racegoers and it showed the calibre of the concerts we are capable of hosting here.”
