UPDATES TO OUR SERVICES AMID THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
WE ARE DELIGHTED TO BE BACK PERFORMING INDOORS FOR SO MANY OF YOU. HOWEVER, WE ARE STILL OFFERING ONLINE AND OUTDOOR SHOWS, FOR THOSE HOMES WHERE AN INDOOR SHOW IS STILL NOT POSSIBLE - inline with the latest guidance from the Government
We are thrilled to be back inside again, after what seems like forever! We've put extra safety measures in place to ensure we can continue providing this service safely -
* All of our singers are taking Covid-19 tests daily. We are doing this at home to prevent any unnecessary travel, but we are happy to perform one of your tests on arrival also - just let us know at the time of booking, so we can be sure to leave plenty of time!
* To ensure minimal contact, invoices will be sent digitally. Following updated advice from Public Health England, we are now accepting cash/cheque payments, but they must be in a sealed envelope. As always, our bank details will be on the invoice for BACS payments.
* We ask that a reasonable amount of space is provided for us to perform inside, to enable social distancing. We also ask that we are not left unaccompanied with the residents at any time during our visit, to further assist in ensuring that social distance can be maintained throughout.
GARDEN/CAR PARK SHOWS
Having a battery powered PA system means we can literally be ZERO contact for this service. We have been successfully bringing outdoor shows to care homes since March, and it is definitely our preferred method of delivering the entertainment!
If the layout of your home allows for residents to look out of their windows into the garden or the car park, this would be ideal!
To ensure minimal contact, invoices will be sent digitally. Following updated advice from Public Health England, we are now accepting cash/cheque payments, but they must be in a sealed envelope. As always, our bank details will be on the invoice for BACS payments.
We are also equipped to handle less than favourable weather, if your set up allows for the residents to stay warm and dry! We haven't let the rain stop us! However, our online shows are a great alternative, should the worst happen...
SKYPE/ZOOM/YOUTUBE LIVE VIDEO SHOWS
For those homes where an outdoor show wouldn't be an option, we have set up a remote performance space at home, where we can stream a live performance right to you, in Full HD video and sound quality!
All you would need is an internet connection, a TV and a laptop!
If you can hook up your laptop via HDMI cable to your TV, we will be able to sing to your residents through the TV set, while still being able to take live requests!
We are making these shows available to re-watch for a week, so that nobody misses out - whether your internet drops out, you have residents in isolation, or are unable to mix floors of residents!
If you're unable to gather your residents together to watch live, we are also offering 1 hour pre-recorded show via Private Youtube Link - this will be available to rewatch for a whole month. These are non-personalised to the home, but contain all the same music and chat. We are changing the shows monthly, to give our regular clients a good variety of shows.
PRE-RECORDED SHOW SCHEDULE 2021:
For our full show list, please scroll to the bottom of this page!
I'm well aware that many of the bookings in the diary were for residents birthdays. We can pre-record a message and a song or two especially for them on their birthday. These messages can be sent via WhatsApp, WeTransfer or email, and typically last for around 15 mins.
For all of these services, we are taking requests in advance, so that the residents get to hear their favourite songs!!
The remote services also mean we can reach to people who normally would be too far away for us to visit!
If you'd like any more information, please get in touch!

About Eleanor Mattley Productions
Eleanor really appreciates the value of Music Therapy, and tries to make each show as interactive as possible, with carefully thought out playlists that are sure to get your residents singing and dancing. During normal times, Eleanor also bring props along for some of the shows, such as flags and bells, which gives her the opportunity to meet the residents one-on-one, and create an overall interactive experience. During current times, we encourage homes to provide and hand out their own props, if their home policy allows it, to avoid cross contamination.
Currently, Eleanor Mattley Productions has over 400 homes on their books across the UK, who regularly call upon Eleanor to sing at birthday parties, Christmas parties, or just as part of the regular entertainment timetable. We offer discount deals for block bookings, and are happy to tailor our shows to suit your needs. Not only that, we have a different show on promotion every month, to tie-in with any special events coming up! These shows are available in person or online, too!
We currently have 18 shows on offer for 2021 -
