Danilo reveals exciting NEW releases for 2014 / 2015

Firstly, we want to say a Big Thank You to everyone who came to see us at Spring Fair last week! It has been another great year and was lovely to see some familiar faces as well as some new ones too 🙂

As the Market Leaders of official licensed calendars, cards, dairies and wrap, us hard-working bods at Danilo have been working closely with some great Licensors to ensure we bring you the best titles in TV, Music, Film, Gaming, Sport and Glamour!

And we have been so pleased to be able to demonstrate some of our fantastic 2014 / 2015 brands at the NEC last week.

But just in case you couldn’t make it up to see us, we wanted to share with you lovely people a taster of the exciting things we have planned for this year…

  • As we have secured new multi brand licenses with the likes of Disney, Marvel, Warner Bros, Fox and the BBC, it means we are super-excited to be able to bring you titles such as Winnie the Pooh, Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, TV Show Arrow, Amazing Spiderman 2, Godzilla, American Dad, Guardians of the Galaxy, funny sitcom Modern Family and new computer game Disney Infinity.
  • We also have the licence to publish The Great British Bake Off calendars and diaries this year, and signed a deal direct with Paul Hollywood, who judges and presents the show with Mary Berry.
  • Another major signing for us is the new Doctor Who in the shape of the regenerated 13th incarnation – as explained by Matt Smith in the Christmas Day special before he turned into Peter Capaldi. We will be publishing both new and classic Dr Who calendars, diaries, cards and wrap featuring iconic villains as well as Peter as the new Doctor in the latest TV series showing on BBC1 later this year
  • But not forgetting last year’s bestsellers, we are also very pleased to be able to see a return of popular titles for 2015 such as:
  1. One Direction – Who have a new music and live tour scheduled for this year
  2. Minecraft – A gaming brand whose immense popularity is still continuing to grow
  3. Skylanders – Another great gaming brand that will see a new release later this year
  4. Mrs Brown’s Boys – Hugely popular this Christmas and also has a full-length movie to be released this year
  5. Minions from Despicable Me – these cute giggling creatures are back and working on their own film

Danilo Celebrates 35th Birthday

35th Birthday cake

35 years ago, Danilo Promotions first began when our MD Laurence Prince recognised the public’s mood and need to celebrate Elvis’ life, after his tragic death in 1977

He flew to LA to meet Colonel Tom Parker and managed to secure the rights to the FIRST Official Licensed Calendar (Elvis, 1979) and the rest, as they say, is history!

Since then Danilo has sold over 100 million calendars and 100 million cards and has grown to become Europe’s Number One official licensed calendar publisher, and we couldn’t be prouder!

To celebrate this fantastic achievement, a special birthday party was organised at the beautiful Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London. With approx 150 guests attending, we enjoyed  a champagne reception, a fantastic magic show, a trio of singing waiters plus the icing on the birthday cake, so to speak, was a video message from Sir Cliff Richard himself, thanking Danilo for publishing his calendars all these years and wishing Danilo even more success for the future.

In his speech, MD Laurence Prince mentioned just how proud he was of his staff, how much he values his close business relationships and thanked everyone, including his wife Josephine and family, for their continual support.

35 years marks an important milestone for the company and reminds us of everything achieved so far. But with some very exciting plans in the pipeline for the future, we say bring on the next 35 years! 🙂

Here are a few fun facts that you may not know about Danilo Promotions…
