365 Days of MASK

The world of MASK is weird and wonderful. We sometimes have to pinch ourselves at the things we get to do and the events we run.

Every single day is different and no-one in the office would bat an eyelid at the quirky things we have to do such as chasing a Lady Gaga tribute act round the moat at the Tower of London, shooting humans out of cannons or commissioning a chandelier made from test tubes. All in a days work at MASK. 2012 was a very different year with the Jubilee, the Olympics and our busiest Christmas ever.

Here are some fun facts to give you an insight:

1. WE WERE EVENT AWARD FINALISTS.

2. IN DECEMBER WE RAN 37 EVENTS OVER 14 DAYS.
