In November 2021, the UK hosted the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference – COP26 – in Glasgow.. We worked with Glasgow City Council to promote the global event’s volunteer programme.

We also worked with multiple partners to project manage and draft updated COP26 content for the Get Ready Glasgow website, a Business Readiness Guide to help the city prepare for conference time and a Broadcast Guide for visiting media.

Tiree Music Festival

Not just a music festival, Tiree Music Festival is a true island adventure and one of the most beautiful and remote festival locations in the world.

We’re lucky enough to have worked year-round on an integrated communications campaign for the festival since 2017.

The Royal National Mòd

We were proud to work with the prestigious Royal National Mòd on the PR campaign for the celebratory Gaelic music and cultural event as it retuned to Inverness in 2021.  We generated more than 200 pieces of coverage across national and regional broadcast, online and print media titles for the hybrid event.

Renowned for hosting some of the biggest names in jazz, blues, soul, funk, R&B, electronic and world music, Glasgow Jazz Festival is a key event in Scotland’s cultural calendar. 

Running the PR campaign for the festival since 2017, we look after the festival’s press launch, previews and reviews.

Merchant City Festival returned to the streets of Glasgow in summer 2021 in a safe, COVID-secure way. We worked with Glasgow Life on key message development and key PR moments including date announcement, full programme and ticket launch and event-time PR opportunities.

SEALL Festival of Small Halls

SEALL brings world-class music to remote village halls around the Isles of Skye and Raasay to showcase the islands’ people and place. For 2020, for the first time ever, the event went online. We worked with SEALL on an effective social media campaign to grow their reach digitally, selling tickets to and engaging new audiences from around the world. For 2021, we have been involved in a campaign to support SEALL’s programme of  summer events and Skye Small Halls 2021.

St Andrews Voices

Scotland’s singing festival, St Andrews Voices, brings a breadth of joyous vocal and choral music to Fife each autumn.
