Marketing

If you’ve got a digital project in need of an audience, a socially distanced show in a warehouse, you’re planning to go on tour with a new play, or you’ve got something really interesting in a pub theatre that the world needs to see, we can tell you how we can make a difference and show you how we’ve helped sales, awareness and the brand of clients who you might know, and clients who you might not. Our agency works right across the marketing mix to produce innovative and effective campaigns for a whole range of the most exciting companies and artists, at a whole range of scales. We create strategic live performance, digital event and theatre marketing campaigns balancing advertising, promotions, digital, 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 West End show transferred to Zoom, developing a new model for socially distanced performance and need theatre PR, 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 and politics, 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

At a moment when predicting where audiences are is trickier than ever, 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 a combined video and print distribution campaign engaging with 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 still think that print distribution is one of the most effective ways to build awareness in a saturated digital landscape. We know the best places to get your print and the people who will be most receptive to seeing a poster, and our team of experienced and enthusiastic distributers will do it. We’ll keep you in the loop all the way with comprehensive feedback and advice.
