Gig Investors Required

Sometimes fantastic shows don't happen simply because of cash flow. While investor capital is un-secured a large number of factors (marketing, good act, good timing) minimize risk significantly. Contact Tane to find out about projects being developed at the moment.

Daffodil Day - Orders by email close today - Friday 4 August

Daffodil Day celebrates the coming of the spring daffodil, the symbol of the Cancer Society, chosen for its reflection of new life and hope for the one in three New Zealanders affected by cancer. Daffodils will be delivered on Wednesday 23 August - ensuring they are fresh for Daffodil Day on Friday 25 August. They make a wonderful and visible display to show your support.

Keep in touch,
