March 2017 Newsletter | I for India

Firstly, our greetings and best wishes to you on the joyful and colourful occasion of Holi. Hope many of you had the opportunity to celebrate Holi with colours and your near ones over the weekend !!

Holi is always an important milestone to mark the welcoming of spring with friends and families, colours and lot of good cheer and laughter. We believe this is a perfect season to mark the countdown to the much awaited, hilarious and vibrant Crazy Mohan tour… now just a month away !!

This newsletter is an event update on activities in progress, introducing our event partners and a reminder of plans filling fast and some ticket tiers selling out across our venues... from our past event experiences, be it Diwali or New Year’s Eve, our sincere advise to our keen patrons is to grab your tickets now and not leave it to the last minute !

The team have been working hard to put in place the necessary arrangements and logistics, both here and in India for this maiden U.K visit of Crazy Creations. First and foremost, the team at Crazy Creations have successfully secured their visas for the U.K tour….HURRAY !! We are making all arrangements to welcome them in terms of flight bookings, hotel accommodation etc. and are in regular contact to liaise on various other arrangements for the tour.

Also, as you would notice from our event posters, the detailed tour itinerary across the UK has been finalised in terms of dates, venues, timings and also the actual play to be staged across the 7 venues across the U.K. The response has been very impressive and humbling, many venues are well past the halfway mark and some ticket tiers nearly sold out !! We are also seeing weekly bookings steadily rise as our digital and physical marketing efforts are ramping up.

As always, we have been very fortunate with having some great partners and well-wishers to join hands in bringing this mega event to our UK patrons. As a little thank you, welcome and tribute to them, here is a synopsis of our partners till date for this milestone event in the U.K :
