During the early part of 2009, Johnny Mans took over the ownership, publishing and editing of the entertainment trade magazine Encore, a respected periodical that had been published for the past 18 years.
With Johnnyís expertise in journalism, design and the showbusiness industry, it was a natural progression and addition to his already thriving business.

We are pleased to say that subscriptions have now increased since the takeover and with the new glossy magazine now in full colour, the advertising and editorial have been well received by all the readers. It is distributed to theatre managers, producers, promoters, suppliers, designers, transportation companies, artistes/celebrities, hotels, holiday centres, dance schools, cruise companies, and all and sundry within the industry.

Encore also has itís Annual Awards Presentation every year, held at Fairfield Halls in Croydon, and there are trophies for Manager of the Year, Producer of the Year, Gaffer (Tech. Manager) of the Year, Showguide of the Year, Outstanding Services to Variety (The Roy Castle Trophy), Childrenís show Producer of the Year and the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Sponsors for the Awards include Marshall Amplification, Directa, Talent Live Entertainment & Events Ltd., Walls Ice Cream, Johnny Mans Productions and M.M.Dancecraft. As well as a drinks reception and a three course luncheon with wine at the Awards Event, there is also a star studded cabaret presented by Keith Simmons and the Water Rats, and profits made on the day are donated to The Roy Castle Fund for Cancer Research UK and the Grand Order of Water Rats, two excellent charitable causes.

Encore Magazineís contributors, columnists and photographers include our regular team of Jim Kennedy, Lucy Mans, Keith Simmons, Elliot Mans, Chris Hare, Doug McKenzie, Jim Nye, David Wood, John Giles, Tony Parker, Jenny Pearce, Clive Fuller, Keith Crosswell, Allan Bula, and our designer Maureen Cesano and printer/supplier Ridgeway Press. We also work very closely with Treflyn Jones of Target Television.

For ten years Johnny Mans Productions owned, published and edited ENCORE the magazine for the entertainment professional, which was distributed to theatre managers, corporate clients, promoters, producers, artistes, musicians, dancers, stage schools, casting directors, hotels, celebrities, cruise lines, holiday centres and all-and-sundry within the entertainment industry.



Subscribers should also note that Encore Magazine is the original entertainment magazine for the show business profession and should not be confused with any inferior parties endeavouring to trade online using our good name.
