Children from age two upwards will enjoy a multi-sensory performance of ‘Gorgeous’ as part of this year’s Manchester International Festival, thanks to support from Seven.  The interactive show, produced by theatre group Oily Cart, involves characters who each have their own individual fragrance created by Seven’s  perfumery experts.  With each player given a unique scent, such as Rose, the children are able to identify and connect with the show much more easily – it is a particularly beneficial aspect for those with sensory impairments.  Click on the link below to hear Tim Webb, artistic director of Oily Cart, explain why Seven’s scents are so important:  http://www.salfordonline.com/educationnews_page/29053-video:_springwood_sc%20hool_goes_arty_for_mif.html
