August 2017

Hello everyone!

August is always a busy time for all of us so it’s so wonderful to see that so many of you are active and doing great and exciting things.

Sarah and I have been busy too and are hard at work programming the first season at our new pop-up venue, So & So Streatham. We are offering special hire deals throughout September and also special rates to So & Sos. The important thing to remember is that you pay hire and tech fees and then you keep 100% of the net box office! How amazing is that? Bargain. So if you want to propose a piece, just drop us as email or visit the website, where there is far more information to be had.
