Are You Ready for Pantomime Season?

Now that the ghosts and ghoulies are behind us, it's almost time for pantomime... Oh yes it is!

Winter is an incredibly busy time for theatres. On top of the huge touring events, bands, comedians, community theatre productions, and public speaking events, arises the great British tradition of the Christmas Pantomime.

Pantomime has become quintessentially British, but its roots actually lie in the 16th century Italian street theatre tradition of commedia dell'arte.

So, as we approach the busiest season, is your theatre ready?



Communication is at the heart of any good production. At Canford, we have some excellent systems designed to make communication as easy and effective as possible.



Green-GO is a cost-effective, multi-award winning digital intercom system that transmits audio over an existing ethernet network; no special wiring needed!

Its proprietary design allows for scalability from a small, deployable application up to incredibly complex communication systems ideal for major live events, multi-function performance venues, and broadcast operations, but can be used almost anywhere.

Please note: we can only distribute Green-GO to our UK&I customers. Customers outside of this region should speak to their local distributors. A full list is available on the Green-GO website.

A tried and tested, wired analogue talkback system which can stand up to the potentially harsh environments of a film set or theatre, or whilst being used as a comms system during deployment of an ROV for seabed survey use. (IP-rated versions are also available).

The deceptively simple Tecpro intercom system allows for a large group of people to have a real-time, two-way conversation with excellent intelligibility.

Is your theatre equipped with industry standard power switching?



50 years of innovation!

The EMO sequential mains switcher system (CM6) protects audio systems from potential harm by powering them up and down sequentially, in the correct order. This avoids damage to vulnerable loudspeakers and maintains the integrity of the incoming AC mains supply.

EMO also offers a wide range of power distribution units in both rackmount and floorbox formats. See the Full EMO Range HERE



It's not just the big stuff. We've got all of the essentials you need too. Cables, DI boxes, mic splitters, clocks, furniture and fittings, desk lamps, cable strippers, protective gloves, script lights, batteries, music name it, we can probably help you out.

Everything you need for a smooth running show.
