Southport's new purrfect 5
star luxury hotel!
CAT owners in Southport will be
delighted by the launch of an extraordinary new 5 star luxury hotel for cats.
The Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel, part of the multi award winning and trend
setting Longcroft Group, will be run by Harvey Summers from the grounds of his
beautiful home, situated in his peaceful and picturesque garden, surrounded by
mature trees and with plenty of wildlife to keep the guests entertained.
The hotel is custom built, offering 5 very spacious, individual hotel style
suites, using only state of the art materials. The 5 star accommodation offers a
thermostatically controlled bedroom, complete with a safe garden and play area.
Each suite is sumptuously decorated and designed around the feline guest's well
being and their owner's peace of mind. Every detail has been meticulously
planned with guest welfare, hygiene and luxury in mind. From wrought iron
designer cat beds with the softest pillows and gourmet 'A La Cat™'
served on bone china, to music, personal grooming sessions and gorgeous views,
the guests at this hotel are in for a treat. Feline guests will keep their
owners' mind at rest with regular updates, photographs and texts whilst they are
Harvey says:- "I am looking forward to offering customers a
truly unique experience of looking after their cats and being able to hand them
back stress free and happy. Spending time with cats is a great bonus for me,
too. I enjoy pampering them and making them feel at home and relaxed, so that
will be a real pleasure. It will be gratifying to grant cat owners the knowledge
that they don't have to think twice about the care their pet will be receiving;
it will be 2nd to none, and will al-low them to enjoy their trip to the full."
It is the 8th hotel in the highly successful Longcroft
Cat Hotel Group, which is the vision of Abi
Purser, who opened the first hotel in 2010 in response to the poor standard of
accommodation and care offered across the UK. Longcroft is the world's first
five star cat hotel group.
Asked what he is most looking forward to about running a
Longcroft Luxury Cat Hotel, Harvey says:- "Offering the best care
available to my guests. Seeing them relaxed and thriving whilst their owners are
away is very rewarding. The response I have already received has been fantastic
and I have bookings as far away as Christmas! I am proud to be part of the
amazing Longcroft family." Leaving a much loved cat for whatever
reason, because of a holiday or having renovation work done at home, can be
really distressing. Harvey's aim is to put an owner's mind at rest that their
pet is being incredibly well looked after whilst they are away.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's
"Cats" to return to Blackpool!

ANDREW Lloyd Webber's record breaking 2015 Olivier award
nominated musical CATS is to return to Blackpool direct from its sell out season
at the London Palladium in the West End.
The hit show will run at the Blackpool Opera House for a strictly limited 8 week
run from 9 July 2015.
Adapted from TS Eliot's 'Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats',
with an amazing musical score that includes the timeless "Memory",
spectacular set designs, stunning costumes and breath taking choreography, Cats
is a magical musical like no other.
On just 1 special night of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at
the Jellicle Ball where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes
the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to The Heaviside
Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.
CATS has a successful history in Blackpool. It 1st came to the Opera House in
1989 for an unprecedented 6 month run. It then returned to wow audiences in 2003
as part of a national tour.
Councillor Graham Cain, Blackpool Council's Cabinet Member for Tourism and
Leisure, said:- "I am thrilled to be welcoming Cats back to Blackpool. It
has enjoyed huge success in the West End with a sell out run at the London
Palladium so for Blackpool now to be the chosen location as the show leaves the
capital is great. The Opera House is the only North West theatre and indeed, the
only place north of London where people will be able to see Cats in the UK this
year so we are delighted. It is also great for Blackpool that we are attracting
such huge shows. Last year we enjoyed fantastic success with the 12 week run of
Mamma Mia! so to be able to boast yet another amazing show for the Summer Season
is an absolute delight."
1 of the longest running shows in West End and Broadway history, Cats has been
seen by more than 73 million people and enchanted audiences in more 300 Cities
around the world, now you too have the chance to experience this legendary
Managing Director of the Winter Gardens Michael Williams said the addition of
Cats to the Opera House's already packed 2015 schedule is the icing on the cake.
Michael said:- "The Blackpool Opera House has a great history with Cats so
we are thrilled to be welcoming the show back. The success of the show in London
in the past year proves that there is always room to see such hugely successful
shows return and we look forward to welcoming both long standing Cats fans and
new ones. We have an amazing year lined up at the Opera House. We currently have
the tour of Jesus Christ Superstar, this will be followed by Lord of the Dance
and only a couple of weeks ago we announced the World Premiere of Last Night A
DJ Saved My Life starring David Hasselhoff. To now be able to add Cats to that
mix for our Summer Season is great for the venue and Blackpool."
Cats is directed by Trevor Nunn, with Gillian Lynne as Associate Director and
Choreographer and designs by John Napier. Book is by T. S. Eliot with music by
Andrew Lloyd Webber.
This 2015 Blackpool season of the Cameron Mackintosh and Really Useful Theatre
