CHF Enterprises Ltd

CHF Media Group has its origin in the 1970s with a firm called Cosgrove Hall which made many of ITV’s big animated hits of the 1970s and 1980s, including classics such as Danger Mouse and the BAFTA-winning Wind in the Willows. During this period, Cosgrove Hall made the programmes and ITV owned the rights and generated revenue through advertising.

Following OFCOM’s ban of fast food advertising during television programmes aimed at children in 2008, ITV sold off the rights and virtually closed down its children’s TV division. In 2011, the original founders of Cosgrove Hall decided to reform under the CHF Media Group banner.

CHF Entertainment, the production arm of CHF, has a team of industry leading animators, illustrators and other creatives who are employees of CHF or independent contractors whose job it is to not only produce and develop the shows or concepts but also to come up with ideas to be considered for development.

Adrian Wilkins – CEO 

Adrian is one of the leading figures in fundraising for the UK animation industry and recently participated in a successful consultation with the UK government, which resulted in the introduction of the Creative Sector Tax Credits for animation shows or concepts. It is anticipated that the investee companies’ shows or concepts will all qualify for this government tax credit.

Adrian has over 28 years’ experience in advising investors, raising capital and structuring media investment funds and has an extensive understanding of EIS, SEIS and Venture Capital Trust tax products. Adrian structured the EIS fundraise for the CHF pre-school show Pip Ahoy! which is airing on Channel 5’s Milkshake pre-school slot. He has also raised significant funds into CHF Media Group and into shows in development.
