We are very grateful to More Sweets for their in-kind sponsorship of our "sweetmeats", in the form of Fruit Caramels (it'll all make sense if you see the show!). Please do check out their eBay shop and show them some support, they've been great. Thank you!

Edinburgh Fringe 2015:
Arts & Business Scotland
New Arts Sponsorship Grant
The New Arts Sponsorship Grant scheme incentivises businesses to sponsor the arts in Scotland. It is funded by the Scottish Government and administered by Arts & Business Scotland. An arts organisation receiving an eligible business sponsorship can apply for £1 of funding for every £1 of sponsorship. The funding goes towards additional arts activity, for which the sponsor receives additional business benefits.
We were fortunate enough to receive a New Arts Sponsorship Grant of £1500 towards our production costs for "Nell Gwyn: An Epilogue" at 2015's Edinburgh Festival Fringe. As a condition of this sponsorship, we obtained partner sponsorship from Strange Company Ltd (see below).

Strange Company is the production company of virtual filmmaking pioneer Hugh Hancock. Founded in 1997 by Hugh Hancock and Gordon McDonald, Strange Company is the world’s oldest ‘Machinima‘ production company. In addition, Hugh provides consultancy services and assistance to those seeking to make films. He kindly provided his services for us at no cost, making our original production trailer as in-kind sponsorship to the value of £1500, to match our NAS funding (see above), and make us eligible for this grant.
