The Chester Art Beat is generating lots of publicity thanks to our funders, artists’ entry fees, supporters ‘in kind’, and our fabulous Publicity Manager Elizabeth Biggs! Here’s what we’ve got in the pipeline so far:

  • 25,000 printed trail maps placed at: all venues, places to catch visitors, and delivered to 10,000 postcodes in the city.
  • Artists advertising the event
  • Chester Handbooks
  • Eventbrite
  • We Love Good Times
  • The Good Times Magazine
  • Local Online Advertising
  • Our Website
  • Posters in local shops and community areas
  • RSA coverage in Webinar at Northern Powerhouse Conference
  • Social Media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin
  • Venues advertising the event
  • Volunteers on the ground wearing their purple advertising bibs during the event itself drawing visitors into venues to meet the artists
  • Welsh Border Life Magazine

WORD OF MOUTH

Never underestimate the old fashioned power of sharing by word of mouth! It’s the day before Jubilee Day and the lady in pink has just been told about the Chester Art Beat on the set of BBC Breakfast TV. Just look at the twinkle in her eyes! No doubt she’ll be ‘waxing’ lyrical about it too . . .


(Our director Julie Mitchell stands beside her having delivered the glad tidings.)
