Throughout 2016, we worked with Cath Kidston to bring to life the wide variety of children’s characters featured in their prints.

To do this we were tasked with designing and creating bespoke costumes.

We cast and trained character performers, producing  a variety of in-store activities for young visitors.

What we did

Our character performers appeared on multiple occasions in Cath Kidston stores throughout the UK.

Characters included:

  • Garden Fairy
  • Cowboy
  • Ballerina
  • Gnorris the Gnome
  • Guards & Friends

We also helped to facilitate numerous Arts & Crafts activities.


Monthly activities covered Mother’s Day and Easter as well as a variety of special events.

In celebration of the Queens 90th Birthday, our Bearskin, Beefeater and Policeman entertained the shoppers near to Buckingham Palace and invited children to paint their own castle.

In the Spring of 2016, we helped Cath Kidston launch their new novelty Gnorris the Gnome print. Our Gnome performers appeared at the Piccadilly store, and Ceramic Gnome painting workshops were run concurrently in 4 of their key regional stores.

#GnorrisTheGnome still appears all over social media!
