Our PR, Digital and Team Highlights for November

It’s been another busy month for the team, working on a vast range of projects, including 2023 planning alongside Christmas events and launches. Here’s a look at our highlights this month…

The Art of Banksy X Children In Need

After launching The Art of Banksy exhibition in October, gaining widespread coverage in the likes of BBC News, The Independent, and the Evening Standard, the next part of the campaign was to support Children In Need.

The collaboration saw Joe Wickes walk for 12 hours straight around MediaCity, stopping each hour to complete a new challenge to raise money for Children in Need. Joe stopped off at the exhibition and spray painted his own Banksy inspired artwork, which was later auctioned off. Our social team attended the walk, capturing content for the Art of Banksy’s social media channels.

Next up, we’re working on a partnership with Manchester’s Finest. Watch this space!

Launching Christmas at Liverpool’s Metquarter

To showcase the range of stores, products and experiences on offer at Liverpool’s Metquarter, the team held a festive press day filled with amazing food, spa experiences, and a product showcase. With over 30 of our regional press and influencer contacts in attendance, the day was a great success - achieving coverage in the likes of Echo What’s On and The Guide, and gained a reach of 306,692.

Skating Into Christmas

We’ve had a busy month launching three ice rinks for our client Arena. First up was Manchester’s Cathedral Gardens, followed by Westfield in London and Hampton Court Palace. From announcing tickets on sale, through to securing press and influencer attendance on launch nights, the team secured coverage across regional and national press, including the Evening Standard, Metro, Manchester Evening News Time Out and many more. Fear not, the team found time to enjoy a hot chocolate and a quick skate round the rink in between all the sell-ins!

Cocktails with Santa at Selfridges

The experience we all need in our lives!

To launch the festive season at Selfridges, , the team put on an event to remember with the big man himself - obviously not forgetting a touch of glam with giant disco balls, neon signs, and the best drinks in town.

With 16 influencers and press in attendance, including Megan Ellaby and Amy Bell, we secured a social reach of 910.8K and a number of features, including About Manchester.
