It’s been a busy April at Cause UK HQ!
Media work continues for our client Harrogate International Festivals. We’ve been liaising with Psychologies magazine on a stand-alone event the Festival is hosting with Girl on The Train author, Paula Hawkins, who is launching her new book, Into the Water, with the Festivals on May 4.
Psychologies’ editor Suzy Greaves will interview Paula on stage, and we got a nod for the event in this month’s Psychologies magazine.
Meanwhile, their Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival continues its murderous reputation as the best event of its kind in the world, picked by Harper’s Bazaar literary editor, Erica Wagner, as one of the 7 Best British Literary Festivals.
Earlier this month, our new media partner for the Festival’s Crime Novel of the Year Awards – The Mail on Sunday – profiled the long-list announcement. We can’t wait for when the shortlist is announced in May!
We were delighted to chat all things crime fiction with their books editor, Marilyn, and Event magazine editor, Andrew, in London at the Festival’s annual launch party in Covent Garden, as well as meet and greet old friends and new – from Telegraph journalists to dedicated crime bloggers.
The Harrogate Music Festival announced its summer line-up, and hosts its final concert in the renowned Sunday Series on April 30 with pianist Alessandro Taverna in Harrogate’s Royal Hall; we enjoyed doing a Q&A with the rather poetic Italian for Pianist Magazine online.
Meanwhile, Clair has been working with James Potter eggs on a new advert for ITV!
Clair’s also setting up a media launch for a new album continuing our work with Eliot Kennedy and his charitable work raising funds for Help for Heroes’ Hidden Wounds.
Our work on the Barnsley Civic fundraising campaign resulted in a great spread featuring our interview with the BBC’s Our Dancing Town’s Steve Elias, on his love of Barnsley and why he’s supporting The Civic. Ann also interviewed ‘The Barnsley Ballerina’ via Facetime (she lives in Russia!) for further regional magazine features. On top of that, Clair arranged for The Civic’s patron, Sir Michael Parkinson, to be interviewed by the Press Association. Watch this space!!
