In many ways 2019 was our best season yet! We’ve pulled together a wee infographic (see below) highlighting some of our key achievements during this festival, and we’ve also listed all the shows and events we worked across underneath it.

Though working on less projects than previous Fringes, we had a very busy month, getting some great results for the varied and brilliant portfolio of artists we partnered with, plus some big wins for us and our show Jock Tamson’s Bairns (renamed Try Slaying as of September 2019).
