Behind the Scenes
Restoration launched on the 14 May to a packed house. Sessions were on the hour from 8pm onwards - with the first session literally standing room only. The launch was hosted at Glitch Bar, which boasts a 38 seat theatrette and our best estimates are that attendance was around 90 people- quite an achievement for the rainy, Sunday, Mother's Day night!
We present, for your enjoyment - a gallery of the launch, so that you may bask in the afterglow (as we are doing now). Imagine the press of the crowd around you and see our intrepid camera crew in action as you amble through the gallery.
A small web documentary of the launch evening will shortly be available for download, so stay tuned. You may yet have your embarrassing moment on film!
Thanks again to everyone who helped make the night a success!
