Promoting Huddersfield’s food and arts

Written by Faith PR Team


We are delighted to have increased our client base with two key account wins, which will see us working with national Caribbean restaurant chain Turtle Bay and Huddersfield’s Lawrence Batley Theatre.

Turtle Bay – which has 18 restaurants across the UK – has chosen Faith PR to handle the PR and communications activity ahead of the launch of its second Yorkshire restaurant later this year, an 8,634 square foot development in Huddersfield.

Our team will be working to increase awareness of Turtle Bay across Huddersfield and the wider area, with activity including media placement, social media support and the management of a VIP launch evening to mark the opening of the restaurant.

Francesca Laycock, project coordinator for Turtle Bay, said: “Faith took the effort to come up with some great creative ideas to generate awareness for our Huddersfield launch, and also have an impressive array of blogger and media contacts that will be key to us raising awareness in the lead up to opening and on the night itself.”

The second account win will see us working alongside the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield, to raise awareness of the theatre’s 21st anniversary season.

Faith PR will work alongside the theatre’s internal PR and communications team to deliver a comprehensive media relations programme to showcase the theatre’s theatrical heritage, credentials and contributions to the Northern cultural scene.

Commenting on the appointment, Victoria Firth, director at the Lawrence Batley Theatre said:

“We’re really delighted to be working with an agency local to us but able to deliver far reaching coverage. We want to make the most of our birthday celebrations to raise our profile and Faith are doing a great job of helping us to do this.”

Director of Faith PR, Stefanie Hopkins, added: “We’re delighted to be working with Turtle Bay and Lawrence Batley Theatre, and I’m confident that we will deliver great results that will raise awareness of the opportunities and investment that both of these clients bring to both Huddersfield itself and the wider area.”

In July, Faith PR was announced as one of the top 50 agencies by Prolific North for 2015, and has recently been shortlisted in the Outstanding Small Consultancy Category in this year’s prestigious PRide Awards, organised by industry body, the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.

The agency was also shortlisted for ‘SME of the Year’ in the Brighouse Echo awards with director, Carl Hopkins, scooping ‘Business Person of the Year’.
