In the space of just two working days we devised, planned and executed a PR stunt for client Bristol 2015 to mark the one month countdown to Arcadia Bristol – the famous mechanical spider coming to the city in September as part of Bristol’s year as European Green Capital.

Last Thursday we met with Arcadia to agree the Lords of Lightening Frequency Rider photostunt, which involved 2 million volts of lightening lighting up the Bristol skyline in front of iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge

The event took place on Monday, with all media materials drafted and approved. We turned off the street lights of Clifton (well, the council did), arranged for photographs and videography, attended a press stunt and managed media attendance.

We gained national online coverage on Telegraph Online, Independent and (pics of day) and print coverage in the Daily Telegraph (half a page!), Guardian and Independent I, plus a raft of regional coverage.

It was a very busy two days but the team loved it!

From L-R – Lucy, Lydia, Kimberley, Shaun (the sheep), Louise and Neil. Our photographer was Megan – she was too shy to be in the picture.

We think the picture is BAAArilliant! What do you think?


Tomasina, our resident tomato plant has been ‘getting it on’ with our other resident tomato plant – Tommy! We hoped that he may have been pollinated by a bee and therefore encourage Tomasina to fruit. No luck yet!
