Knutsford’s Firework PR secures local launch of Pub in the Park
The award-winning PR company from Knutsford, Firework PR, has been appointed to handle the local launch of Tom Kerridge’s Pub in the Park Tour, Knutsford 2019. The agency successfully handled the local PR and marketing launch for the 2018 event which took place in September at the Lambing Shed, attracting over 13,000 visitors during the three day tour. The event welcomed artists Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Squeeze, Razorlight, Tom Odell, Melanie C, The Christians and Scouting for Girls who all performed to packed crowd. In addition, there were chef demos from Tom Kerridge, Angela Harnett and Brian Mellor.
Cheryl Carroll from organisers Brand Events commented: “Knutsford was a brand new venue for us last year and it was a huge success. Taking a hyper-local approach worked incredibly well and this year we’re really looking at an even bigger event working even more closely with the Knutsford community.”
This year’s event will visit eight UK locations, returning to its original venues – Marlow, Bath, Tunbridge Wells and of course Knutsford; this year it also adds St. Albans, Chiswick, Poole and Roundhay to its tour.
Clare Wall, co-founder and Director, Firework PR commented: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be working with the team at Brand Events again to plan next year’s event. The visitors to this year’s Pub in the Park made it clear they wanted it to return to Cheshire in 2019 and the organisers have responded! Pub In the Park is a great event combining great music and top-class food and drink from local providers. With this year’s event taking place in June – the official start of festival season – we’re hoping the weather will be kinder to us!”
The dates and music line-up for Pub in the Park 2019 will be announced in January. For latest updates and information on next year’s event, you can sign up to the Pub in the Park 2019 newsletter here.
