An evening at Elstree studios

On Tuesday, we attended the launch of Creative England’s ERDF-backed Pro-connect programme for Hertfordshire.

The event was located in the iconic Elstree studios, who are currently celebrating their 90th year in Film and TV. The studios are home to some of the top shows on British TV including Big Brother, Strictly Come dancing and was also the birthplace of the Superman, Star Wars and Indiana Jones trilogy to name just a few.

The evening was started by a warm introduction by Roger Morris the Managing Director of Elstree studios followed by Hayley Armstrong of Creative England who talked about the Pro-connect programme that will be running a series of events and funding from Spring 2017 designed to help freelancer’s or small business owners operating in film/TV production in Hertfordshire.

It was great for Performance to be involved again and have the opportunity to meet a wide range of people from the Film / TV industry all at different stages of their careers.  Our usual prize draw for a bottle of champagne was popular with all the attendees with two lucky winners having a drink on us and we also got to provide some quick advice & guidance on any insurance related matters – I’m always pleased that so many attendees are keen to listen, learn and ask questions about their insurance requirements.

Thanks again to Creative England for giving us the opportunity to be part of the evening and I’m looking forward to hearing more about the programme and how it is supporting businesses and individuals in 2017.
