Larger than Life

29 October 2007, Farringdon, London

When we produced The Sultan’s Elephant, we received scores of requests from people wanting to know the practicalities of how we brought the giant elephant and girl to London. With this conference, we asked a number of the agencies and individuals who helped us make the project happen to come and talk about their triumphs and tribulations. In addition, we invited some of the biggest names in outdoor performance to share their experiences with over 100 delegates.
