This is the second time we have been pipped at the post by London-based Stage Miracles who picked up the award for the 4th year running. Despite being up against competition from the whole UK & Ireland StageCrew  were the only Irish based company to be shortlisted in any we feel this was a victory in itself, and an acknowledgement of our high standards.

We'll be back next year and we'll do our best to make sure "Miracles" don't take 5 in a row!

She was sunk on Friday 7th May 1915 with the loss of 1198 passengers. The drama / documentary follows the lives of the crew on Lusitania.

HMS Caroline is the last survivor of the Battle of Jutland 1916. The Heritage Lottery Fund has just awarded a large sum to restore and preserve it as another tourist attraction in the Titanic Quarter.
