    I just wondered how the company works, do you put plays on and sell tickets or do other companies pay you. The reason I’m asking is it would be great to have something along the Crinan Canal or Yotspot or the Ciarnbaan Hotel or even at Crinan, perhaps a ticketed event . The canal is steeped in history and this is the year of history heritage and archeology.
