The place was pandemonium. Computer systems all over the place, plumbers and electricians, BT getting wired up. And in the midst of this chaos – an urgent request for 200 rabbits.

We were organising an event for them that night which included a magician, and they decided it would be really good fun to give everyone a fluffy bunny,” says Debbie Stevenson, creative advisor at the new-look Tayburn McIlroy Coates.
