About Us

C.T. Entertainment is based in Newtownards Co. Down and is both a supplier and manager of entertainment acts of the highest quality. The company is owned and managed by Cecil Thompson  who has worked with some of the best in the busisness including Jim Atkin and X-Factor supremo Louis Walsh.

CT has been a driving force in the entertainment business in Ireland for many years, not just as a promoter and manager, but also as an advisor to various venues on how to best to promote their premises through entertainment. Cecil is currently the entertainments advisor to the Hastings Hotel Group and he is highly recommended by all the leading hotels in Northern Ireland.

Cecil believes in doing the job right, and that is why, when you book through CT, you get the assurance of knowing that the act you have booked, will be the act that turns up, at the agreed fee, for the agreed duration. Nothing is left to chance.


C.T. Entertainment was first established by CT in the early 70s. Cecil had been promoting local venues during the Show Band days and decided to make a go of it as a promoter. Very soon Cecil was promoting 25 venues all over Ireland and it was when  he eased off promoting venues that he developed a roster of top bands.

Having put forward a local act called Sunshine to Opportunity Knocks in the late 70s, the band managed to win the show 8 times and were soon very well known throughout Ireland establishing both the band and the promoter throughout the country.

In the 70s he received the coveted ‘Showcase Award’ for the promoter who was the most instrumental in developing the entertainment industry in Northern Ireland.
