Exciting News

We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of JHI by Fane Productions, joining a stable of literary and talent based companies headed by Original Talent Ltd.

Working alongside Fane Productions on recent tours with Stacey Dooley, Nigella Lawson, Gareth Malone and Grayson Perry, the synergies of both our companies and the benefits of working closer together became obvious. Now with the support of Fane Productions and Original Talent, we can achieve our greater ambition more quickly; to provide bespoke and original marketing campaigns to more live entertainment clients.

Jo said,

“We are so excited to have the support and backing of Fane Productions and Original Talent so we can concentrate on the work we do and provide it more economically and effectively to our clients. That this support comes from such a prestigious and creative stable, assures us that we are in good and faithful company.

Under the Original Talent umbrella sits the literary agencies C&W (formerly Conville & Walsh), Ed Victor Ltd and the events company Fane Productions, as well as the production company Cuba Pictures and creative writing school Curtis Brown Creative.

In 2017 Original Talent acquired a majority stake in Tavistock Wood the boutique talent agency and its newly formed production company Open Book.
