"I've been so fortunate to know and work closely with Adam C Booth for the past 18 years. Knowing his passion for our industry, it was obvious he would want to nurture new up and coming talent. Having this school is wonderful, as we gain a platform for all the students to learn, create, discover and enjoy our wonderful industry. Being a Patron is the icing on my cake. Good luck to all the students, can't wait to see you!"
