The good news continues as we move into May as our team won a competitive tender to handle the marketing, PR and social media for a new festival which will celebrate Kirklees’ rich textile heritage and look ahead to the industry’s digital future, named Woven in Kirklees.
Supported by the Creative Economy Team at Kirklees Council with festival curators HATCH, Woven in Kirklees runs from Saturday 8 – Sunday 16 June with a series of events held across the district.
Stefanie Hopkins, Managing Director of Faith PR, said: “The textile industry in Kirklees is globally recognised and we’re very proud to have been chosen to promote the Woven in Kirklees festival. Our team is highly experienced in providing PR and marketing for events and festivals and we’re excited to be working on this project.”
Our team will be promoting the events set to take place throughout the coming months, celebrating the local textile industry’s innovations, as well as future opportunities for careers, creativity and innovation.
Events will include, ‘The Big Knit’ on 8 June, where people will be encouraged to ‘yarn bomb’ local landmarks across Kirklees; mill walks, tours and open days; pop up exhibitions; events in theatres, galleries and museums with local artists, music and film, along with events for families, schools and businesses.
Alison McIntyre, of HATCH, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Faith PR to promote the first ever Woven in Kirklees festival. We chose them based on the excellent work they have previously done with Kirklees Council to promote music across the region, along with their additional experience in the sector.”
