The building was developed by the award-winning LoftCo, who specialise in restoring historic buildings into mixed use facilities. This office is unique and eye-catching, boasting features from the old railway. It is the perfect space to impress clients and maintain a happy staff.
Beautiful weather and smiling faces shone bright as Picnic Penarth was held for its third year, this time at its new Esplanade location. The sell-out weekend saw 14,000 visitors being captivated by top entertainment, fantastic food and an electrifying carnival atmosphere – and Genero Group couldn’t be happier to have helped delivered it all.
Genero Group, whose UK headquarters are based in Penarth, was delighted to partner with Penarth Town Council back in April to help organise this much-loved community event on their home turf. In order to ensure fun was had by visitors of all ages, entertainment acts including Penarth Soul Club and John Lewis and His Trio were invited to the event, and younger guests were treated to Simon Sparkles, DJ Stirling and an excellent performance by Rubicon Dancers. To top it all off, visitors were treated to the unique view of the Volva Ocean Race departure, adding a summery touch to the energetic atmosphere.
“Seeing local families and visitors really enjoying the weekend made all our team’s hard work worthwhile,” said Cllr. Rhiannon Birch, leader of Penarth Town Council. “I’d like to thank our local community and businesses for their support in making this event a real Penarth showcase.”
“I’m so pleased that the Picnic was such a great success,” added Pete Leckie, MD of Genero Group. “Of course, my own family loved every minute of the weekend, too!”
This year’s Penarth Picnic was the first event to take place under the new Memorandum of Understanding between Penarth Town Council and Genero Group, and the organisers are looking forward to joining forces again to deliver the Penarth Festival and Downhill Derby on July 14 and 15.

Cardiff events and media powerhouse expands leadership team
CARDIFF November 2017
The expansion of Genero Group has recently been underpinned by two appointments to its leadership team in Wales.
Dai Jenkins, formerly Commercial Sales Manager at Dragons rugby, takes up the role of Sales Manager, bringing a wealth of experience and a bursting contact book reaching across the UK.
Dai’s remit will include the strengthening of the ever-growing commercial operation, based at Genero’s HQ in Penarth, and continuing the nationwide services expansion, particularly in London where the company has enjoyed rapid growth over the last two years.
Newly appointed Operations Manager, Andy Wyatt, takes up the challenge of the busy production side of Genero following his move from London-based AVMI. Andy has hit the ground running and has found the new environment - and the pressures of the company’s packed diary - a refreshing challenge already.
The development of the team, based at Genero’s two sites in Wales, will support Genero’s national growth ambitions. The hires will also significantly add to the ability of the company to serve current and new clients in Wales and throughout the UK.
On the new appointments, Pete Leckie MD of Genero Group, comments: “I’m so pleased to welcome Dai and Andy to the Genero family. 2017 has been an immensely successful year for us and I look forward to seeing our new recruits reaping further rewards in the new year.’
Early in 2017, Genero Productions was approached by Omnicom Media Group and UniCredit to provide event services for a VIP dinner marking the UEFA Champions League Final in Cardiff in June. When we discovered that the event was to be held in a castle, we felt all the more excited to embrace this new challenge.
Making news all over Wales this summer was the spectacular Weeping Window which flowed beautifully out of the Senedd at Cardiff Bay.
