The event, held at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse, brought together some of the North West’s biggest stars including Gary Neville, who hosted the event and former Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley who performed ‘Baby of Mine’ to the room of distinguished guests.

Kym Marsh, Shayne Ward, Antony Cotton and his partner Peter Eccleston also attended, as well as actor Jason Watkins.

TLC, known for organising some of the highest profile events in the country – including Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright’s wedding – secured Gary Barlow to perform an exclusive set for the VIP crowd ahead of his 2019 Take That tour.

Lucky guests were the recipients of luxury money-can’t-buy prizes in an auction which included a fabulous state-of-the-art Bentley Continental worth over £200,000, five a side with the class of 92, as well as a meet-and-greet with Robbie Williams and lunch with Howard Donald.

Liz Taylor, founder, TLC says: “The months of hard work have paid off. We’re so delighted to have raised this money for these deserving charities. I’m so grateful to all our distinguished guests and suppliers who came together to create such a magical, worthwhile and memorable event.”

“In spite of the economic uncertainty surrounding Brexit, I am seeing an increase in confidence by our corporate clients in their own marketing futures. Meetings, conferences and recognition events are firmly back on their agenda! “

Liz added: “Natalie and Lauren have joined us at an exciting time and their roles give us the additional employee support to deliver a series of events lined-up this year, but also a platform upon which to secure further growth in 2019.”

Gary Barlow Will Headline a Charity Event in Manchester this Autumn

Gary Barlow Will Headline a Charity Event in Manchester this Autumn

(@blairgetzmezibov)

One of the region’s leading event planners, Liz Taylor of the Taylor Lynn Corporation (TLC), is spearheading a charity event this autumn that brings Gary Barlow back to Manchester to give an exclusive performance. This spectacular evening will raise money for Child Bereavement UK and The Red Sea Pedestrians (in support of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity).  Gary Barlow will headline a charity event, being held on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at Victoria Warehouse, Manchester, and it will be hosted by football legend, Gary Neville.

The black-tie evening is packed with entertainment including the live performance from Gary, plus, organisers have flown the internationally acclaimed Swan Band from France to perform throughout the event. A central attraction on the night will also be the incredible fund-raising auction of ‘money can’t buy prizes’ organised by Selfridges, which will also include lots such as a Bentley Continental, donated by Bentley Manchester.

Liz Taylor, managing director of the Taylor Lynn Corporation commented: “I wanted to create a truly unique night…and this is it. Gary [Barlow] and I have both supported Child Bereavement UK for many years now. He was also made an Patron for the charity in 2016, so when I asked him to help with this event, there was an instant yes!

“We both appreciate the incredible role of the charity in supporting young people and their families in times of loss and bereavement. Their work in the north west, and across the country, has touched many lives, but they need valuable funds to continue this incredible work.”

Liz Taylor added: “We have bold ambitions of what we can raise in one night, but I know Manchester is a bold and ambitious city! For the last 18 months Emma Neville has played an active role in supporting Child Bereavement UK, and as a result Gary Neville has agreed to host the night. Bentley offered an incredible car to auction. Selfridges have provided us with ‘money-can’t-buy’ auction prizes and gift bags. Ann Crossland and family have sponsored our band for the night. Victoria Warehouse donated their venue. The response has been immediate and exceptional. I think with this level of support from the north west business community, the quality of the evening and the generosity of our guests on the night, we can achieve anything!”

The dinner will offer a champagne reception followed by a three-course dinner, entertainment, party and goody bags courtesy of Selfridges. A limited number of VIP tables of 10 people cost £10 000, and additional tables of 10 people cost £5 000. Anyone interested should email: taylor.lynn@tlc-ltd.co.uk

We are proud to share profits from the event between Child Bereavement UK (registered charity number 1040419) https://childbereavementuk.org/ and the Red Sea Pedestrians (registered charity number 1158475), who celebrate their 10th anniversary this year. The Red Sea Pedestrians have, over the last 10 years, contributed to ground-breaking life-saving equipment for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity http://www.redseapedestrians.org/.

Development Plan for Event Company TLC Includes Appointment of Operations Director

 

 

As part of its strategic development plan for 2017-18, event management company, the Taylor Lynn Corporation (TLC), has appointed Ellie Barnes to the post of operations director.  Formerly a senior event producer for the company, Ellie became a shareholder in TLC in 2016 and this week took up her new role managing TLC’s busy day-to-day operation.

 

Ellie Barnes has worked for TLC for five years, and now takes over responsibility for managing the TLC events team and day-to-day event planning, managing venue and supplier relationships and overseeing all event operations.

 

“I am delighted” says Ellie Barnes

 

“No two days are ever the same at TLC.  We work at a lightening pace and our clients demand the highest quality and a great attention to detail.  And, I thrive on it.  The new role will give me greater responsibility within the business including management of our amazing team, and the creative scope to push our conference and event production values and expectations even further.”

 

Company founder and managing director, Liz Taylor, will take responsibility for strategic development and spearheading sales and marketing at TLC, and remains involved in the company’s events work by overseeing the major events schedule.  Ellie’s new role will also allow Liz to invest time in developing TLC’s latest service; venue marketing consultancy. 

 

Having secured clients last month such as Lonestar Boutique Hotel & Suites, Barbados, a luxury hotel in Jersey and one in the north-west of England, Liz is utilising her 30 years of experience in conference and events management to advise venues looking to grow their luxury wedding, meeting and special events markets.

 

Liz Taylor commented: “I was approached a few months ago by a venue and asked if I would offer advise on how to develop their product and service to attract a high-quality wedding clientele.  I was genuinely excited by the idea of taking all our knowledge as event and wedding producers, and using it to help the client to make their service more relevant.  I know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to venues!”

 

She added: “After one client, more followed and it really became an organic growth – and a brilliant opportunity emerged.  Next came a new-build venue looking to plan their meeting spaces, a hotel wanting to grow sales in the conference market and other clients who are getting their business ready for Brexit – by wanting to explore the potential of the MICE sector for additional revenue streams.”

 

“It’s an exciting time for TLC. With Ellie taking a greater management role in the business, I am in a strong position to develop our additional services such as designing festive decor for commercial spaces and venues, and the venue consultancy.  I am also working on a number of media and entertainment projects that will come to fruition later this year.  It’s non-stop!”

“The sponsorship is a natural step forward for us and fits perfectly with our plans for expansion in this area.  The nature of stadium events means there’s a lot of pressure to deliver not only a spectacular event, but also on the reputation of the specific club.

 

“The awards night will be fabulous event for everyone concerned, and I’m particularly pleased to be organising the entertainment and room décor, as both are very close to my heart and are two areas that as company, we excel in every time!!!  And in true TLC style, we’ve got a few spectacular surprises awaiting the guests.”

“2017 is breaking all previous attendance records. Historically, we have welcomed around 280 guests from stadium venues across the UK & Ireland. Last year, we saw huge growth to 365 guests at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. To grow this figure by a further this year 30% is just fantastic.
