Our PR, Digital and Team Highlights for September

We’re ending Q3 on a high note with a host of events that have created headlines. From orchestrating memorable photo opportunities with Selfridges to launching new drink and dining destinations in Media City, it’s been an exciting month.

Selfridges Launches Yellow Pages

This autumn, Selfridges launched Yellow Pages, a scheme designed to reimagine Selfridges’ physical and digital stores, showcasing the latest in fashion, design and culture.

Selfridges has worked with Yell to loan the project’s name - Yellow Pages - to bring to life a 72-page printed zine. The scheme was amplified by a number of activations in Selfridges Manchester Exchange store, including window takeovers with Factory International and wrapped trams throughout the city.

New Foodhall KargoMKT Opens in Media City

We hosted a show-stopping event that created a buzz for a brand-new waterside drink and dining destination in Salford Quays, Kargo. We invited press and influencers down to see the brand new food hall, home to 20 kitchens, a bar and a waterside terrace looking over Salford Quays.

Social and coverage highlights so far include Paris.artiste, Manchester Evening News and The Manc.

Christmas Showcase at City Suites

Christmas came early at City Suites as we hosted a ‘Welcome to Sparkle Season’ Christmas preview for influencers and press. Guests were treated to a sparkly night filled with bespoke gingerbread cocktails and canapes to get a feel for the festive menu and tour the Embankment Lounge and Private Dining space ahead of the party season.

Banksy Makes Noise on Regent Street

After announcing the arrival of The Art Of Banksy exhibition a few months back, Carousel was challenged with creating excitement around the new central London location on Regent Street. The exhibition showcases 110 original pieces including prints, canvases and unique artwork, many of which are on display for the very first time.

The team smashed the event by putting together an impactful guestlist full of local press and influencers. Coverage highlights so far include Daily Mail, London World and Yahoo News.

Cotton Traders Hosts Autumn/Winter Press Preview with Alex Jones

Following the announcement of the year-long partnership with TV Presenter Alex Jones, Carousel hosted an intimate and Instagrammable lunch at Mortimer House, where guests and press were invited to take a sneak peek of the top picks from the Autumn/Winter collections.

In addition to a beautifully dressed venue, Alex Jones hosted an informal styling session where she took guests through the edit and answered questions around the room.


Some team news to finish off the month with a very well-deserved promotion for Ellie Wallis to Senior Account Manager.

Ellie has shone across her accounts and produced amazing results on campaigns which include Cotton Traders, Rainbow High, Zapf and Selfridges.
