John Hague and Associates is an arts management business that evolved from SponsAssist Ltd, a company formed by John Hague in 1990 to raise business sponsorship in the amateur music field.
Working with such organisations as the National Federation of Music Societies, the National Youth Choir and Goldsmiths Choral Union, the company soon found itself expanding into concert and arts project management. John Hague & Associates was set up to manage this growing area of business.
Major clients have included British Telecom PLC, National Grid, St Pauls Cathedral, Sir Charles Groves as well as many individual amateur choirs and orchestras.
They are currently working closely with Raymond Gubbay Ltd in organising the BT Christmas Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in London, having been involved in this event for twelve years.
Other concert management clients have included the Imperial Cancer Research Fund at St Pauls Cathedral and the Lords Taverners in the Long Room at Lords Cricket Ground, with such stars as Julian Bream, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lesley Garrett, Evelyn Glennie and the King Singers.
John Hague & Associates were also responsible for initiating the National Grid sponsorship of the International Test Match Umpires Panel with the International Cricket Conference and the Test and County Cricket Board.
Current work includes the project management of the BT Brass Band and the BT Melodians Steel Orchestra. John Hague & Associates are the sponsors of the Sir Charles Groves prize for the National Federation of Music Societies.
