We are proud to have appeared in many professional productions including Pantomime, Bill Kenwrights ‘Evita’ and ‘Joseph’ (featuring stars from BBC’s ‘Any Dream Will Do’) and the Band of Her Majesties Royal Marines.

StagedRight joined pop star ‘Katy B’ and headlined the open air concert to celebrate the arrival of the Olympic Flame to Carlisle performing before an audience of 35,000 people

Put simply – Life Skills
