Marketing

If you’ve got a festival in need of an audience, a project in a warehouse, you’re about to go on tour with a new play, a community led creative project, or you’ve got something really interesting in a pub theatre that the world needs to see, ​we can help. We have examples of how we've supported and boosted sales, awareness and the brand of clients who you might know, and clients who you might not. ​Maybe you've even seen some of our campaigns in action.

Our agency works right across the marketing mix to produce innovative and effective campaigns for companies at the forefront of performing arts and culture, on a whole range of scales. We create strategic theatre marketing campaigns balancing advertising, promotions, digital, print and distribution, ticketing and design, and link this with PR to get you the best value and the best results. 

Our job is to tell your story: whether you’re about to open a London show or starting a UK tour, curating a festival, or want to shout about arts projects engaging with local communities, we’ve built a wide range of media contacts covering the arts and beyond. We reach journalists covering lifestyle, social issues, politics and health, and work locally and nationally to achieve press coverage your audiences will see. Our agency is committed to working with companies that champion diverse voices and those taking work to venues beyond the big cities, and we’re always looking out for emerging artists. Our experienced team work closely in partnership with selected long-term clients on their PR but we’re also able to move fast to run media relations for the next big company on the Fringe.

P.R.

Distribution

There’s nothing like an eye-catching, information-rich flyer being passed from hand to hand to spark conversations about what’s going on in London. That’s why we’ve adapted our services to get to audiences where they are now, rather than where we’d like them to be. From distributing a thousand posters across London's residential areas, to budgeting and planning combined video and print distribution to engage your local stakeholders, we can help you reach and better understand your audience.

We’ve been working with London’s best and most savvy cultural organisations for more than ten years, and have case studies to demonstrate that print distribution is still one of the most effective ways to build awareness in a saturated digital landscape. We are well versed in audience demographics and behaviour and will work with you to run a print campaign in the best places to reach your target audiences most receptive to seeing a poster. Our team of experienced and enthusiastic distributers will engage audiences and businesses alike with personal and positive messaging. We can even book in your print!
