Isaac Acheampong, 7 October 2017 Have you thought about freecycle or freegle? Perhaps linking up with them around more theatre stuff?

Isaac Acheampong, 8 October 2017 Another idea for getting good quality stuff; contact shopfitters, shop fitting companies, and ask them to recycle the (often very good quality expensive) stuff they rip out of shops for new seasons, collections etc. Tell them you will credit them on your publicity for shows etc., or on social media. Maybe do a mock up of a poster with their logos on, or logos of other (rival) companies, to persuade them.
