Surprise Us! We’re Expecting The Unexpected

Honestly, we’re after the wackiest, most original proposals, so don’t be thinking; ‘Ah, no that’s way out there!’ Propose it! We want to hear about it! We know you’re brimming with fresh ideas as bright as a cross-processed slide film, so let your imagination run wild and let’s make it a month for everyone to remember.

Ready For The Good Times

Joy, excitement and fun is what we’re after; we want to see a lot of people enjoying themselves and having a good time. Attract them, engage them and make it a glorious month in good company!
