Internal Publicity Day

This saw the major cast members get together to sign limited edition t-shirts (for future competitions) and posters, have “poster photos” taken, radio interviews and lots lots more (including munching on a wide variety of food it turned out).

Our lovely female lead (the one on the left) is running the Great Manchester Run on Sunday in aid of The Christie, a charity that raises money to support families of those with cancer.

The guys and girls from The Sweet Shop would like to wish her the best of luck especially as Gemma will be running in a giant cola cube outfit to support the film…… (not really)
