It’s with a great deal of sadness we must report that Ditto has ceased operating for the time being, as of 2016. Unfortunately Beth is battling a serious disease, and will not be able to work while that is ongoing.
“It has been my joy and privilege to work in this business with so many talented and wonderful, kind, funny, welcoming people, and I am proud of the work we have done and how Ditto has grown over the last five years.
It is very difficult to leave a thriving and lovingly built business but it is the only practical and honourable course under these circumstances.
Thank you for your support. We hope to see you again soon, in the meantime please keep supporting our amazing clients and colleagues.”

Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominees Lazy Susan totally sold out their Soho Theatre run this January with Extreme Humans, their award-nominated show from Edinburgh 2014.
Edward Rowett’s debut Radio 4 sitcom has been commissioned and recorded, and will be transmitted later in 2015. RELUCTANT PERSUADERS, produced by Absolutely Productions and written by Edward, is a brand new 4 part sitcom starring Matthew Baynton (The Wrong Mans), Nigel Havers, Josie Lawrence, and Rasmus Hardiker.
Run in name by washed up advertising legend Rupert Hardacre (Nigel Havers), and in actuality by long-suffering account director Amanda (Josie Lawrence), Hardacre’s is London’s worst advertising agency. Armed with a creative team – Joe (Matthew Baynton) and Teddy (Rasmus Hardiker) – who would ideally like to sit in their office eating cereal all day, they attempt to sell the world the smallest, strangest, and most sinister products on the market.
