A Nottinghamshire businesswoman is expanding her business with the aim of creating new jobs in the creative industry across the East Midlands.

Jenny Gilbert, from Nottingham, and her business partner Natasha Mann-Harwood already run the murder mystery experience company, AATP Mystery Games.

And now, together with new manager Mandy Morely_Harriman, they have launched Masquerade SFX which focuses on live makeup, environments and prop creation outside of the film and TV industry.

Jenny said: “We have always loved SFX makeup and props as well as theatre, they are what brought Natasha and I together and allowed us to create something great.

“With the demand for interactive entertainment and immersive environments only getting bigger, we love to combine the two and bring something new.

“The two companies go hand in hand perfectly”

Masquerade SFX has now officially launched its services and online shop through its website at
