Glasgow Academy Les Miserables with HANDS ON musketsWe are very impressed by the professional standard set by the schools we work with. Our muskets were recently hired by Glasgow Academy for their production of "Les Miserables." (See our Les Mis suggestions here.)

George Watson's College has also enjoyed the use of our vast array of armoury and uniforms, hiring our Roman costumes for "Julius Caesar".

Aida Knives
In Further Education, we have been assisting Strathclyde University Student's Union lately by providing special touches for big events. Our Olympic flaming torch was a hit at their recent Sports Ball, and our confetti cannon was used at the Glasgow Cup awards ceremony in March.  

We have also supplied Motherwell College with staging for their upcoming performance of Aida, as well as authentic looking weapons (pictured).
