Fred. Olsen appoints Pop Up Entertainment on board Braemar

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has announced the appointment of Pop Up Entertainment as the new production show company aboard its ocean ship, Braemar, with effect from June 1.

Based in Blackburn, Lancashire and led by managing director Amy Toole, Pop Up Entertainment submitted its tender in June 2019 to provide production shows aboard Braemar. After an in-depth selection process, involving reviewing show-reels, meeting various show companies, and watching performances up and down the UK, the cruise line awarded the contract to Pop Up Entertainment, out of some 20 tenders received overall.

Pop Up Entertainment will be providing the 924-guest ship with a series of new shows throughout each cruise season, with effect from June 1, produced exclusively for the cruise company.

Helen Bennett, entertainment & enrichment manager for Fred. Olsen, said: "We are very excited to be working with Amy and her creative team at Pop Up Entertainment. The production team is made up of experienced performers, most of whom have worked for us in the past, and they are a fresh, young and highly-motivated company.

"We have tremendous confidence that Pop Up Entertainment will provide us with fresh and highly creative new shows and we look forward to working closely with them."

Amy Toole added: "I am absolutely delighted that Pop Up will be providing production shows for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. We are thrilled to be bringing a new wave of entertainment to guests on board Braemar, offering something traditional, yet with a contemporary and fresh approach.

"I have an incredibly strong team already working hard to bring the shows to life and I know I can speak for everyone when I say we are extremely passionate in bringing something to Fred. Olsen that its guests have never seen before.”
