Brighton Fringe is England’s largest arts festival and one of the biggest fringe festivals in the world.

“Hester is an extremely reliable, thorough and creative person to have working with you on all kinds of press campaigns. Her longstanding relationship with the media is extensive and she is able to quickly draw on and further develop these to achieve results. She gets on with the task in hand so efficiently that I am sometimes quite startled as to how quickly she has produced work, written work in particular. She is also great fun to be with and is a real asset to the Fringe.”

Julian Caddy, Managing Director of Brighton Fringe

Hester immediately understood what the project had to offer and came up with great ideas to make the most of press and social media. The process was easy and the results were great! Cut Through achieved so much more than we could on our own and we’d definitely work with them again.”

Starting with the Brighton Fringe with the first NOA Pop Up exhibition at Silo, which was a huge success, Hester initially helped with all her Brighton contacts but has continued on by distributing regular press releases and getting NOA wonderful exposure on the BBC, in national newspapers and on TV.”
