Walker Pinfold Associates is carrying out a ‘work in kind’ sponsorship for the 2000 Sprint festival, which begins on Monday, by creating all of its promotional material. The month-long event at the Camden People’s Theatre is a festival of ‘physical, visual and unusual theatre, with shows ranging from the absurd to the terrifying’, according to a festival spokesman.
