ITV to air special programmes to showcase Capital’s two balls

Capital’s Summertime Ball and Jingle Bell Ball will be showcased on ITV in a new deal between Global and ITV.

The 90 minute entertainment specials will broadcast highlights from the two events.

And Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball with Barclaycard will return to The O2 in London later this year.

The 90 minute TV specials are commissioned for ITV by Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning, ITV and Louise Major, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment, ITV.

They are filmed and produced by Global’s production team. Global Founder Ashley Tabor-King OBE is Executive Producer, Elizabeth Honan is Creative Director, Dave Skinner is the Director, and Carl Trumpess is Producer.
