The new DS Store Eglinton brings a taste of Paris to Northern Ireland, opening its doors to customers for the first time on Thursday, 19 April. Located on Courtauld Way, Eglinton, near Londonderry (BT47 3DN) it is a completely new build, conceived from the ground up to represent the expanding premium French car brand DS Automobiles. Embracing the very latest technology, DS Store Eglinton will provide new and used car buyers with a special environment to explore, experience, specify and purchase their next DScar.

Andrew Miller, Dealer Principal of JC Halliday & Sons in Eglinton, commented: “The opening of DS Store Eglinton is a great moment for all at JC Halliday & Sons. We share the vision with DS Automobiles in the growing demand in premium and stylishly-distinctive new cars that reflect strongly on their owners’ status and vehicle aspirations. A DS Store has a very different feel to a traditional car showroom with a premium space for displays and attention-to-detail features that gives customers a feeling of well-being in stylish surroundings.

“DS Store Eglinton, the only DS outlet in Northern Ireland, permits customers to be on a progressive and immersive journey that makes specifying a new car to be a wholly delightful experience. This can start with a high-definition, life-sized 3D DS Virtual Reality experience through to the arrival of their bespoke-specified new DS car. This environment raises the bar of customer experience to a new level. We welcome everyone to come and see it for themselves, and to enjoy refreshments and one-to-one service from our DS Expert Advisors.”

DS Store Eglinton incorporates a number of features designed to enhance the customer’s experience:

  • 3300sq ft showroom can accommodate the display of 5 DS cars
  • 3D DS Virtual Vision area – for a life-size configuration of a customer specified DS car of their choice
  • Lounge area – with Nespresso coffee machine and comfortable bespoke seating
  • Air conditioned surroundings, lightly scented with an exclusive DS ambience-scent via a special diffuser
  • Digital configurator and crafted items display, including vehicle options available

As well as displaying a compilation of beautifully crafted items from collectors’ models to leather bags, scented candles and books, the DS Store brings together an exclusive array of physical and virtual assets. The result enables each customer to try out before they buy in a stylish and chic environment that is nonetheless a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

The DS Store concept is a retail outlet very different from a normal car showroom. Offering an entire brand experience, it’s designed as a luxury boutique dedicated to the DS brand. The unique Parisian chic atmosphere is reflected in every design detail: from the colour scheme, the DS designed furniture, lighting effect, to the DS scented rooms and chosen music, everything is in harmony to create a unique environment.

Alain Descat, Managing Director at DS Automobiles in the UK commented, says: “2018 represents an important period for the emerging DS brand. We have started a new-generation of new models, the first of which is DS 7 CROSSBACK, the SUV by DS. In parallel we are introducing an expansive range of services to ensure each person has a unique customer experience, under the guise of ‘Only You, the DS Experience’, to ensure all services are extended to our customers and we also have a growing network of dedicated DS Stores and DS Salons, primary among which is DS Store Eglinton.

“We’ve used intuitive technology like DS Virtual Vision to be at the forefront of new ways for our customers to specify, experience and buy a new car in order to make their lives easier and better informed. DS Store Eglinton has been finished with great attention-to-detail. The result has the French savoir-faire we’re renowned for and most importantly, we’ve created an appealing environment for our customers to immerse themselves with the DS brand.”

The Humble Comber Spud Hits the Big Apple

Northern Ireland company, Mash Direct, has launched in the USA!

Farmed on the shores of Strangford Lough, the traditional Northern Irish foods will be available to purchase in time for St. Patrick’s Day at Key Food, Food Emporium, Brooklyn Fare and SuperFresh.  It’s the first time that the taste of fresh Northern Irish produce will be available for customers to purchase in US grocery stores. The potatoes, carrots, parsnips, cabbage and more are grown by the Hamiltons, a 6th generation Comber farming family.

Martin Hamilton diversified his farm back in 2004 to create Mash Direct, offering healthy, gluten-free, vegetable side dishes that have the taste and texture of quality, Irish homemade food. The company has come from humble beginnings of selling traditional Mashed Potatoes and Champ in St. George’s Market to exporting its range of over 40 products on a global scale.

Made with traditional local butter and containing no artificial flavourings or preservatives and being gluten-free, it’s easy to see why the vegetable dishes have proven to be popular with the American taste-buds. Speaking ahead of the US Launch, Mash Direct Director, andwinner of Ulster Tatler, ‘Business Man of the Year 2017’ Jack Hamilton noted, “Everybody knows that Comber is famous for potatoes and for the first time we are able to supply them fresh to New York. There is such a great variety of Irish-produced whiskies and stouts across the USA, but no one in the market is bringing fresh Northern Irish dishes to American plates. We wanted to bring the unique richness of Irish soil and six generations of farming knowledge to the shelves.”

Eight of Mash Direct’s products, including family favourites such as Potato Croquettes, Mashed Potato and Potato Rosti, will be listed to go into Key Food supermarket stores, throughout New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania from this week.

The company has a total of 19 Great Taste Awards to date, the award-winning Mash Direct range can be found in Spar, EuroSpar, Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys, SuperValu, Centra and lots of local independent stores. See the full list of over 40 products at: www.mashdirect.com/products

Jean-Christophe, who has been dubbed the UK’s ‘Favourite French Chef’, has complimented the quality of Northern Irish produce, a great accolade for local suppliers. “You need to have wonderful ingredients to produce wonderful food, and I have been thoroughly inspired and excited by the quality and variety of produce available to me here on my Belfast doorstep,” said Jean-Christophe Novelli.

Set on Belfast’s waterfront, with stunning views and an open-air terrace, the 112-seater ‘Novelli at City Quays’ restaurant will open in April as part of the all-new AC Hotel Belfast, the £25million contemporary-luxe hotel developed by Belfast Harbour in the heart of its prestigious City Quays quarter. ‘Novelli at City Quays’ will be the celebrity chef’s first restaurant on the island of Ireland, representing a key milestone for him, a major coup for Belfast’s hospitality offering, and a valuable boost to local suppliers.

Rain Falling Up

Get ready to be amazed and captivated by Rain Falling Up, a Dumbworld Production in collaboration with Ulster Orchestra. The show will take place in the Ulster Hall on Friday 16th March. Guaranteed to be a joyous concert for all the family, this spectacular musical production features a large chorus of 300 children from local schools in Belfast, the Ulster Orchestra and a live shadow puppet animation – all created with the support of world renowned film-maker, director and writer John McIlduff and composer Brian Irvine.

Combining music, song, narration and animation, Rain Falling Up, which is supported by National Lottery funding through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, tells the story of a little boy Jake, who is fascinated by all things scientific. One day, after being blamed for breaking his mum’s vase he comes to the conclusion that gravity is not his friend anymore. So he builds himself a gravity switch so he can turn gravity off. Life seems so much more fun when you can float around freely, but when the switch disappears and Jake finds himself drifting alone through the universe he realises that perhaps he made a mistake.

Rain Falling Up was first performed in the Waterfront Hall in 2010 with the Ulster Orchestra and has since been performed in Dublin, City of Derry and in the Italian city of Aosta, each time with a different orchestra and children’s choir. In 2013 Rain Falling Up, was nominated for a British Composers Award (community award).

The current project has been running since November 2017 involving a specially formed children’s chorus made up of 300 primary school children drawn from 10 schools across Belfast. During the project children will have taken part in 130 workshops including; animation, developing music, performance, learning, composition and singing skills led by Brian Irvine, the Dumbworld creative team and members of the Ulster Orchestra. Alongside these workshops the schools engaged in an art project focusing on the invention of their own gravity switches which will culminate in an exhibition of their work.
Rain Falling Up takes place at Ulster Hall on Friday 16th March 2018, 7.30pm. Tickets are £12, Snr citizens & children (5yrs-16yrs) £5, and children under 5 go FREE. For further details visit www.ulsterhall.co.uk or www.dumbworld.com.

‘Trainee Filmakers’ Wins At World Documentary Awards

Cinemagic’s short documentary film, ‘Trainee Filmmakers’, has won a platinum award at the recent World Documentary Awards in Bali. ‘Trainee Filmmakers’ is a short ‘behind the scenes’ documentary linked to Cinemagic’s second feature film GRACE AND GOLIATH, due out later this year. It is a comedy about an American film star whose world comes crashing down, and who finds himself lodging in the home of a working class family in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The film is written by Omagh born Maire Campbell and produced by Cinemagic Chief Executive, Joan Burney Keatings MBE.

Grace and Goliath is the second feature film to come from Cinematic following the success of ‘A Christmas Star’ in 2014-15. The project offered an invaluable opportunity for young filmmakers from both Northern Ireland and Los Angeles to work across a range of disciplines including directing, production, costume and make-up, sound, lighting and music composition.

A special preview screening of the documentary ‘Trainee Filmmakers’ will be aired during Cinemagic’s Festival in Los Angeles on 15th March 2018 to an audience of celebrities, film and music industry executives at the annual Cinemagic Los Angeles Showcase event in the Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows, Santa Monica.

They embrace the magic of film, television and digital technologies, as well as educating, motivating and inspiring young people through film screenings, industry workshops, practical masterclasses, filmmaking projects and outreach activities.

Sammy Nutt from Killaloo, just outside Derry/Londonderry, director of ‘Trainee Filmmakers’ one of Cinemagic’s greatest success stories said “Cinemagic breaks down boundaries, promotes inclusion, and introduces young people to other cultures, languages and traditions. It’s absolutely thrilling to see how our young trainees have gone on to work with various film and television companies such as the BBC, HBO, Disney, Sky Atlantic, RTE, and Bedlam Productions.”

Sammy Nutt is a former Cinemagic participant and took part in the organisation’s music directing talent lab workshop with the esteemed music/tv director Hamish Hamilton over 12 years ago. Sammy was chosen as the most promising director out of his class and took part in Cinemagic’s Young Filmmaker competition. He subsequently went on to secure a work placement as one of the directorial assistants at The Brit Awards in 2006 and 2007. Now based in London, Sammy works as a director in prime time broadcast television, music promos, short films and branded online content with broadcasters, companies and brands such as the BBC, ITV, MTV Networks, Universal Music, Sony Music, American Airlines, Budweiser and Cadbury. He is working with talent such as Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles, Ariana Grande, Russell Brand and Simon Cowell.

The last few years have been a particularly exciting time for Cinemagic.They have firmly established annual Cinemagic Film and Television Festivals in Belfast, Dublin, London, Paris, Los Angeles and New York, with over 40,000 young people participating in their events each year. They have produced two feature films; secured worldwide distribution for ‘Christmas Star’ ; developed two “behind the scene” documentaries, produced over 45 short films; supported over 150 young trainees to work in the film and television industry; and we are now planning the world premiere of ‘Grace and Goliath’ later this year
