Bombardier Jet Reveal

0

GENEVA: Bombardier has revealed its Global 5500 and Global 6500 jets, the newest in its Global business jets range.

Bombardier’s reveal took place at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition in Geneva and presented a positive portrayal of the Canadian company which was dogged by bankruptcy issues only three years ago.

The planes are powered by new Rolls-Royce Pearl engines and come with a new wing design and cabin interior. The Global 5500 has a range of almost 6,000 nautical miles making flights from Sao Paolo to Paris a breeze while the 6500 has a range of 6,600 miles.  The flight range of the new planes will be a challenge to rival Gulfstream which currently holds the distance trophy for long range  business jets.

A 13 percent increase in fuel efficiency helps the environment and  operational efficiency.  

Inside the 5500 and 6500, Bombardier’s Nuage (French for ‘cloud’) seats will cosset passengers.

The jets are expected to take to the skies by the end of 2019.

Classic Ibiza At Ragley Hall Set To Sell Out

0

Organisers of the Classic Ibiza musical picnic at Ragley Hall claim that overwhelming demand for tickets signals a sell-out ahead of the event’s 7th July date. Lucy Reid

Ragley Hall (see link below) is the home of the Marquess of Hertford and has been the Hertford ancestral home for over 300 years. The estate is set in thousands of acres in the lush grounds of Warwickshire where Ragley makes its debut this summer as host venue to Classic Ibiza.

The Urban Soul Orchestra, DJ Goldierocks and a host of live vocalists will perform some of the biggest dance tracks from the last 20 years at Ragley Hall. Its sprawling grounds are to start a sun-down set encouraging revellers to picnic or dance, before DJ Goldierocks warms up the crowd ready for the USO and vocalists.

Classic dance tracks, huge screens and lasers will enhance the magic and visitors will be able to suggest their favourite dance anthems in advance, to be included in the programme on social media.

The emphasis at Classic Ibiza is on its billing as a concert for all the family. Visitors can bring their own food and drink, or take advantage of numerous stalls selling high-quality street-food and refreshments. Car and coach parking is free. 

Lisa Ward of Revival Productions said: “We’ve worked with the fantastic Urban Soul Orchestra for a number of years and can guarantee that they will put on an amazing show. My team’s job is to enhance people’s experience so that they want to come back for more. This includes selecting a beautiful venue that has the best transport links, ensuring that people can get on and off the site easily, all the way through to making sure that everyone enjoys themselves in a safe environment and doesn’t have to queue for ages to use the toilet! We’ve been overwhelmed by ticket sales at Ragley and I am confident that the concert will sell out long in advance.”

Classic Ibiza is also performing at five other venues this summer: Capesthorne Hall (30 June), Harewood House, Yorkshire (28 July), Bowood House, Wiltshire (4 August) and Blickling Estate, Norfolk (10 August), Hatfield House, Hertfordshire (1 September).

 

Tickets: Adults: £39.50. Children: (aged 5 –16) £17.50. Under 5's free.

Programme: 6 pm: car parks and gates open. 8 pm: chill-out set. 9 pm: interval with live DJ. 9:30 pm: dance set and laser light show. 10:45 pm: concert finishes.

Paddington 2 Grabs Festive TV Slot

0

LONDON: Christmas has come earlier for the makers of Paddington 2 which has now grossed over £31m at the UK box office. StudioCanal sent us the supporting Christmas-themed TV slot.

Based on the best-selling children’s stories by Michael Bond the film is once again directed by BAFTA nominee Paul King, from a script by King and Simon Farnaby. The film is produced by multi award-winning David Heyman, producer of all the Harry Potters among other hits.

The sequel finds Paddington happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. He buys the perfect birthday present in the form of  a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief…

StudioCanal is Europe’s leader in production, right acquisition, distribution and international sales of feature films and TV series and has fully-financed recent box office hits Paddington, Shaun the Sheep and Non-Stop. Its 2018 slate includes The Commuter featuring Liam Neeson.
