Take the Stage founder Amy is jumping for joy after Garda helped the company double the number of children it helps from 300 to 600 – in a single year!

The new Southend-based production company makes it affordable for performing arts schools to give children the chance to perform at nationally recognised venues.

The brainchild of actress and TV presenter Amy, she not only hopes Takes the Stage will give children much needed opportunities, but that it will help to launch some glittering careers.

However, Amy also knew that she needed help to get the word out to as many people as possible, so she asked Garda to get involved. We worked closely with her over a year to market the event and win valuable PR, as well as designing eye-catching items like event programmes.

The result: Take the Stage is thriving and growing. It will return once again to Southend’s Cliffs Pavilion this year, when many local performers will have the chance to showcase their talent.

Amy is so pleased with the result and says: “Garda have been instrumental in providing Take the Stage with highly effective marketing ideas and support since our inception in 2016. From logo designs to social media posts, marketing advice to programme printing, Garda have been invaluable in the growth of our business. Three years on and we’re still as in love with our logo as the day they presented it to us!”
