Punch Tavern, County Durham (The Kings Arms and The Jolly Drovers)
We have just installed two system into an old customers sites, The Kings Arms, Lanchester, and The Jolly Drovers, Consett. Both of these are in County Durham and Brian Proud is the operator of both of these sites. Brian was one of our first customers in 2003 and has used our system right up till a year ago when a well-known pub operator proposed a new product and pressed Brian to take it in both of his venues.
Brian called Mediatheme in May and asked our Sales Manager Ian Ball to visit him at the Kings Arms where he expressed his disappointment at the new system and his wish to switch to the Entertainer ™product. He has now purchased two new Entertainer systems and said he is happy to go on record to say our product is by far the best kit on the market. Here’s what he told us after the two Entertainer™ systems were installed:
Hello my name is Brian Proud and operate two large Punch Tavern venues in County Durham (The Kings Arms and The Jolly Drovers). I have had the Entertainer™ system installed in my businesses for over a decade now and I can honestly say I am delighted with the product and the service received”.
“I am especially pleased at the way the Entertainer™ systems has kept pace with technology and is actually ahead of anything else available on the market today. I am happy to recommend this product to anyone in the business who is looking for a way to increase footfall and advertising revenue.”
The Cleveland Huntsman – Middlesbrough
“Getting the Mediatheme™ system installed in our pub has been the best thing that’s ever happened to our business. No more paying out vast amounts every week for disco and karaoke, as the machine does it all for you. Before you know it, the system has paid for itself. One of the best features as far as the disco is concerned is being able to cater for the individual’s taste.”
“If someone wants a 50th birthday party, with specific tunes then you just programme them in and then let the machine do the work, and the same goes for an 18th, or Christening, or whatever the occasion maybe. Then there is the karaoke which has all the up to date songs, to keep everyone happy.”
“All in all we would not be without the system, it’s got everything you could possibly need to keep your customers entertained and coming back for more.”
Secretary at Baildon Wood WMC
“The Entertainer™ has made a great difference to us – the entertainment is just there, ready to use. The Entertainer™ is at the centre of everything we run. We’re the busiest club in Bradford.”
“We use karaoke and bingo all the time. Bingo is great on a Saturday – all the tables are full and everyone joins in. The picture shows on all our plasmas, so everyone can see the numbers. Skint or Mint also go down brilliantly, and we use Horse and Dog racing all the time. We’re fully booked for weddings and parties, so will always have our Entertainer™ on, ready to do karaoke or racing or whatever they want.”
Sunnybank Football Club, Aberdeen
“It’s all about getting bums on seats. We wanted to draw more people in, and keep them in for longer. That’s why we went for The Entertainer™. We didn’t want a machine just for bingo, we wanted something with lots of features, and we always intended to use it to its full potential. We hoped to make enough money to cover the cost of it, and reduce the costs of our external suppliers. We used to spend £90 each week just on a two hour disco.”
“In the year and a half we’ve had The Entertainer™, it’s made quite a difference to the income of the club. In the last financial year, we’ve made over £30,000 more than we usually would, and that’s after taking off the cost of the system.”
“We use the system all the time. We do Bingo four times a week, regular karaokes and competitions, raffles all the time, and Skint or Mint, our favourite game, about three times a week. We get the occasional big winner, and that really draws the crowds in. Race Nights are also really popular, and we do them monthly as fundraisers. We also use adverts and scrolling text to show off birthdays and competition winners.”
“We use the Advert Manager to display ads from local businesses, and make extra revenue that way, and we can also show our sponsor’s logos etc.”
Head Event’s Presenter at Proents Events
“We use The Entertainer™ on a professional scale. We’re serious about entertainment, and take it to a completely different league. We have found that The Entertainer™ really works if you use it properly. It’s a great selling point to add to our repertoire. Even on an average night, if we’ve been hired to host a karaoke event, the customers never just get karaoke. They get game shows or quizzes, and the system is so simple to use, we can load different features up instantly.”
“Because we’re always moving to different locations, and entertaining different sorts of people every day, it’s vital to have a huge variety of features we can use. It’s also a great way of giving people prizes. At corporate events we find games like Take Your Pick very popular, it’s ideal when companies want to give out rewards and prizes.”
“At exhibitions and media events, we’ve always got something different on offer. I know the system so well now that I can operate it with my eyes closed, which means I can be really involved with the audience, and give them exactly what they want.”
Olsen Cruise Lines
“The Entertainer™ is the equipment of choice for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. Their first system was fitted back in 2002, and Fred. Olsen has since had The Entertainer™ installed in every one of its luxury cruise liners for quality, instantaneous, music and entertainment.”
Pontins Technical Manager
“We have been using the Entertainer systems as the primary media source in our venues for 16 years now. Initially attracted by the frequently updated library of licenced & vetted music, games, and karaoke, combined with an easy-to-use touch screen interface, these systems quickly became central to many of our daily activities.”
“Today the Entertainer systems also provide the backbone to our licenced bingo & gaming operations and Our Bluecoat teams are using this technology every day of the week delivering our famed entertainment product.”
The Blenheim Mount Hotel
“As a result of buying one of the early Mediatheme entertainment systems from you. I found it to be a robust and compact system which was easily updated and various additions added on a monthly basis, I had it Installed 26/6/2006 and I’m still using the system in 2018 ! the features we use on a daily basis are karaoke/quizzes/raffles/bingo and advertisement.”
“The after sales service is very well carried out, speedily and efficiently and available until late at night , I find the Entertainer to be great value for money.”
Ord House Country Park, Berwick.
Nestled in the beautiful grounds of a striking 17th century Berwick manor house, Ord House Country Park is an award-winning holiday centre with over 400 caravans on site. Owner Steve Dixon is kept busy providing entertainment for the many thousands of tourists he accommodates each year, as well as managing a steady calendar of events for local customers. Steve uses his Entertainer™, to provide most of the entertainment in his venue.
Ord Park is ideally located near to Northumberland’s striking coastline, and the stunning setting, coupled with Steve’s state of the art entertainment systems, provides holiday makers and regulars with an unforgettable experience. Steve’s venue is split into three separate rooms, each containing a feed from the Entertainer Pro™ and high tech audio visual equipment – and each able to create a distinctive atmosphere.
“It’s ideal because I am able to give my customers what they need,” said Steve. “I can set the Entertainer™ to play 50s music for a party of pensioners in one room, while a group of lads is watching sport in another”
Steve has held some excellent charity race nights, games nights and children’s mini-discos over the last year, and stages a popular karaoke disco every Saturday night, but he uses the Entertainer’s™ comprehensive music programs and advertising suite every single day.
“It’s a great piece of kit, and so handy,” he said. “We’ve purpose built a DJ booth for the Entertainer™, with disco lights and all the gear, but you can just set it up for the night and let it run itself.”
The staff have their own favourite play lists, and there are ‘Essential Sunday’ and ‘Disco Night’ compilations ready to go at the touch of a button.
Steve makes the most of the Advert Manager and the new backgrounds he receives on his update discs each month. As well as promoting his own forthcoming events, menus and specials, he is also set to start charging local business for displaying their advertisements, after running free trials. The venture has also proved a financially sound decision for Steve, who reckons the system (please read the quote below)..
“more than pays for itself”. “I used to spend around £200 a week on DJs, and £350 just for New Year’s Eve,” he said.” “We had a superb New Year with the Entertainer™ last year though, with a full night of games and then a disco – it was a cracking party!”
