“Making the move to We Are The Fair to produce Summer in the Square this year was a no brainer. From the get-go the team was incredibly efficient, calm and super- responsive and it was clear they had the experience to match. There was never a moment that we did not have complete faith in their ability and were confident that they would deliver exactly what we asked for, plus more. It was a truly slick production from start to finish.”
