Mash Productions is a production company that creates, facilitates and provides content of the highest quality to a wide variety of clients, including artists, promoters, record companies, broadcasters and sponsors. Our primary role is to create or enhance projects and to turn them from good ideas into reality.
We work closely with clients and collaborators from an initial idea throughout the creative development process, helping to identify target audiences and channels of distribution, and to achieve artistic and financial objectives.
Our first production, Wonderland, brought together 13 of the world’s most famous composers, a best-selling writer, an acclaimed illustrator and 13 animators from around the world to create a truly unique event. The project has resulted in a 20 concert tour of 6 countries and a recording released on Orchid Classics, all to raise money for the Lenny Trusler Children’s Foundation.
Mash Productions now has a slate of projects in development, including concert and recording concepts, musical stage plays, a festival of film and music in collaboration Hauser & Wirth, and series of children's concerts. Mash is also responsible for the Artistic Directorship of the Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival, one of the UK's most prominent summer events.
