A VIP reward by the King of Waltz was given to two of the Regent Centre staff at André Rieu’s recent concert at SSE Arena in Wembley. An invitation to meet Andre Rieu following the concert was a dream come true for the Christchurch theatre’s general manager, Felicity Porter, and marketing officer, Laura Dean.

The Regent has been the No 1 cinema in the UK and Ireland for the last four years for the best audience attendance at Andre Rieu’s concert broadcast screenings, and the King of Waltz decided it was time he re-paid the favour by inviting Porter and Dean for some of his very special VIP treatment at his concert in London on 12 December.

Front row tickets, VIP reception and a chance to meet André Rieu in person after the concert were all part of the package. It was all arranged for the lucky ladies by André’s son, Pierre and André told them, “We are so thrilled with the fact that you are such great supporters of us. Please keep it up.”

Porter and Dean were treated like fellow royalty by the King of Waltz and commenting later, Felicity Porter said, “This has been a dream come true, finally getting to meet André in person and seeing him live on stage playing his wonderful music.  This is a brilliant acknowledgement by Andre for all of the hard work put in by the Regent staff and volunteers to make the Centre the No 1 cinema in the UK and Ireland for audience attendance at his concert screenings. It has been a real night to remember for Laura and me.”

André Rieu can be seen next at the Regent for his New Year Concert from Sydney on Saturday 5 January at 7pm and Sunday 6 January at 3pm and 7pm. Felicity was able to tell André in person that advance ticket sales for the three screenings are already going through the roof and that she is confident that the Regent will retain its title as his No 1 cinema in the UK and Ireland in 2019.
