They may not have a Kansas office yet, but JM Glendinning MD Nigel Wood was recently joined by 90 of his corporate insurance clients and families to see Leeds Playhouse’s production of The Wizard of Oz, this week.

JM Glendinning is a Corporate Partner of Leeds Playhouse, which has recently re-opened following a major redevelopment to reinvigorate the theatre experience. This redevelopment has seen the creation of a studio theatre, improvements to access throughout the building and a city facing entrance.

A Christmas visit to Leeds Playhouse has become an annual event for JM Glendinning. 2017 saw Nigel celebrate his 30th anniversary in the industry with a trip to see the Playhouse’s production of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe to mark the occasion. This was followed last year with 90 guests joining him to see A Christmas Carol at the Playhouse’s Pop-Up Theatre.

Says Nigel Wood: “The business has had another great year and I cannot think of a better way to thank clients than with a trip to see Leeds Playhouse’s festive production of The Wizard of Oz. I’m a huge fan of what the Playhouse represents in our community and I am delighted to be able to have a part in supporting Leeds Playhouse through this exciting time of redevelopment.”

Kate Jeeves, Head of Development at Leeds Playhouse, said: “This is an exciting time for Leeds Playhouse and we are delighted to have the support from everyone at JM Glendinning.

“The Wizard of Oz is a household favourite full of adventure, excitement and magic, which we’ve brought to life in a fresh and thrilling way. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to the theatre.”
