Back in Europe

After a hiatus of a few years, CALM Theatre Sounds is pleased to announce that we have resumed trading with the EU. After receiving significant requests and demand from Germany, France, Netherlands, Spain, and not least Eire we have finally commenced Business to Business sales. For Business to Consumer sales and Hires we are still maintaining a watching brief but do not have a blanket exclusion.

For non-UK Business sales we plan to continue allowing our website to prevent the completion of sales and we ask that you contact us directly. Ideally an email to detailing your EORI/VAT number, shipping address and the item of interest. We will then get back to you with a quotation including the overseas shipping uplift charge.

CALM supplies ballroom audio magic for Ella’s ball.

CALM Theatre Sounds are pleased to announce repeat business with Newcastle Upon Tyne’s Northern Stage for their production of Cinderella: A Fairytale. Once again CALM are supplying EM Acoustics speakers and amplifiers to augment the ‘epic space’ of Stage 1 & 2 combined together.

Ella misses her mother and father. Her step-mother is the worst, a horrible bully determined to make her life a misery.  Her step-brother and sister are no help.  Nature is her escape and the birds seem to be her only friends.

But, when she meets a boy in the woods who loves to bird watch too, her heart begins to flutter! Her mind races and she begins to believe in the magical power of love.

And then: an invitation for all of us to join in the festive cheer at the Queen’s Christmas ball!

Full of music, dance and comedy, Cinderella: A Fairytale is a retelling of this classic tale for anyone who has ever dreamed that good will always win.
