Limmud Conference - 10 years with Shock!

Shock have reached a decade of running sound, lighting and audio visual services for the annual Limmud Conference.

This year was one of the best yet with a record 2300 participants. Highlights included an amazing Jewish gospel group and a great program of lectures, workshops and performances. Shock supplied 5 staff and a huge range of sound, lighting, projection and other audio visual equipment. We also provided advice and support for the organisers and presenters.

Shock's Christmas shows - The Gruffalo, Gruffalo's Child and others

As well as sound, lighting, projection and other audio visual hires and services Shock run a successful recording studio composing and recording music for theatre shows and TV ads. Our recent shows have been busy touring the UK, US, Singapore, China and Poland!

This Christmas saw the Tall Stories Theatre Company show of 'The Gruffalo' playing at the Arts Theatre in London. 'The Gruffalo' has now been seen by 50,000 plus people and should be touring for many years to come. A Gruffalo DVD of the show is available on Amazon produced by the Really Useful Group in 2005.

Meanwhile the 'Gruffalo's Child' show had a successful Christmas run at The Gardner Arts Centre in Brighton as well as The Phoenix in Leicester and should hit the West End in 2007. Shock also provided the radio microphones for the show.

Expect to see the Big Wooden Horse production of 'The Night Before Christmas' touring the UK in 2007 after a successful premiere.

Finally the 'Snow Dragon' show has been touring the United States and getting great reviews. We had a lovely email from someone who couldn't get the Snow Goblin song out of their head and wrote to us for the full lyrics.
