Introduction

Our successful franchisee Lindsey Berry owns Failsworth. Footlights Failsworth was Footlights first ever Franchise and has grown from strength to strength and continues to grow with a too well established Stage schools. Lindsey trained in Performing Arts at The Manchester College whilst maintaining a full-time job working with the homeless a job that she had done for 20 years, she was also a single mum bringing up her adorable daughter Ferne. Through this is was clear Lindsey would excel at multitasking thus leading her love of Performing Arts to business.

Lindsey has been a huge support to Footlights Founder, Jo Fisher and after it’s first year in operation, Lindsey came on board, firstly as a parent as her daughter Ferne performed in Footlights first ever show. Lindsey has been part of roots and has learnt the business form the inside out, on the job alongside Jo Fisher. Within a couple of years wanted her own franchise. She has since opened three franchisees to enormous success and her daughter who is now 24 has two of her own. A true Footlights family
