Visitor experience

This week we've been appointed to work with the world famous Bath Abbey on their interpretation project. The Abbey is one of the most popular places in the South West with over 350,000 visitors per year. Clearly, the Abbey is most importantly a church and a place of worship. Our task is to achieve the right balance between satisfying the hunger for knowledge and a calm place for prayer.

The National Trust launches it’s first nation wide Walking Festival this coming weekend. Many people assume that the National Trust only looks after stately homes but the charity also manages hundreds of miles of countryside and coastline such as Brean, posted July 13th 2011. Aiming to encourage more people to explore their local landscape there are many walks, from gentle rambles to guided trails all available on the National Trust website

The exhibition at Lacock we designed, spoken through the voice of Matilda Talbot, is now in full swing.

Our client says” The visitor enjoyment score at Lacock increased by 9 per cent in July, and amazingly the biggest increase was in our core ‘curious minds’ audience! Wanted to pass this on with our thanks – some lovely endorsement from our visitors to put you in a good mood for the weekend!”

Might be worth a visit…

The refurbishment on the beach hut at Brean Down has now been completed – Hurrah! By the end of the month the welcome space graphics will be in place. The spectacular peninsula and beach at Brean offers masses for history lovers, nature and wildlife lovers, lovers of walking and well … just lovers. We’ve been working on the identity of the site for a while and it’s always such fun to see the execution on a wide range of communication pieces.

We are now live with the Tyntesfield branding! Each of the various motifs have been ‘informed by’ decorative elements from within the house. This one is taken from the wallpaper in the dining room. You are richly encouraged to discover where other motifs are taken from around the house and garden. Take a trip to Tyntesfield and see for yourself!

This weekend will be the first of the Montacute holding exhibition. So often hidden, we’ve looked at this exhibition through the eyes of and using the voices of the builders, crafts people and conservators who day to day look after our heritage buildings. Inspired by the Richard Scary book, ‘What do people do all day’ we ask members of the conservation team to describe and discuss the holding pieces we have on show. The exhibition runs for a year and a half; get down there if you can.
