We'd like to proudly introduce ourselves as the co owners of Let it snow productions established by Brooke Leete and Louisa Simmons from the North east of England, being business partners and most importantly best friends.
Having worked together previously in various events and in the entertainment/media industry for over ten years, the idea of a storybook character company presented itself to us whilst working in events and seeing the need for quality characters with quality costumes after hearing so many horror stories from clients of so many companies around the North East cutting corners, not being reliable and delivering bad quality unbelievable entertainment for children.
After seeing so many lookalikes who looked nothing like the real deal , we believed we could bring this to life with some magic in the North East. Louisa looking similar to the "Snow Queen' & Brooke being able to morph into the character the "Ice Princess" it seemed natural and the pair of us gelled together to create a believable experience of the two characters being sisters for young children in the north east. The bond of being like sisters in real life is something we pride ourselves on and think this comes through in the way we work together, and has proven to make children believe in the magic of their favorite characters. Mannerisms and personality traits were perfected and kitted out with two costumes, the journey started...
Starting off at children's parties being the first company to offer the 'snowstorm' and indoor snowball fight experience kicked off an amazing first winter in business!
Where it all Started!
Where we are Now!
Where we are Now 2 Years On!
Having previous links with metro radio being the place we first met, we were offered the privilege of being able to work closely with Metro Radio's charity Cash for Kids raising money for disadvantaged children in the North East. This brought us great appreciation and left us knowing we were in a position to help and to bring joy to children's lives whilst raising money for the charity of course. We have continued to do charity work throughout this journey and we love the satisfaction it brings. After all it is not about financial gain, working with children is our passion and its about giving back and being able to make children's dreams come true.
Our first year brought us our first event in the summer 'Princesses in the Park' at Northumberland Park, which was hugely successful with 12 of our characters and we were blown away by how amazing it was to see so many children and parents leaving with a smile on their faces at the end of the day (after going on a treasure trail and finding the "Tinker Fairy" in the woods!). The perfect snowstorm ended the day and left children with memories of all their favourite characters to last a lifetime.
The start of 2016 brought a truly magical gift in the shape of an explosion of so many more characters being added to the Let it Snow Kingdom! We are proud to now offer a line up of over 30 well known children's lookalike characters!! We pride ourselves on creating the most similar and best quality costumes and add extra special attention to detail to make the experience all the more believable!
