Nathan Rous PR will be handling public relations for the event, one of the UK’s largest free festivals.

The announcement comes after the agency moved to new offices in Wellington earlier this year with the help of a town centre development grant from Telford & Wrekin Council.

Proud of their new home, which is the former court house building on Church Street, the company has now turned its attention to supporting the local community, starting by sponsoring the popular arts festival.

Running from Saturday, May 4, to Tuesday, May 14, this year’s festival will see a range of free events happening across the town centre. From willow crafting to storytelling, it’s a firm favourite on the Shropshire events calendar.

Nathan Rous, founder and director of the firm, said: “The move to our new Wellington office has given us a huge boost.  In the four months that we have been here we have welcomed two new members of staff, launched a new hospitality offering called Mr Greenside and won a number of new clients.

“The arts festival is a perfect fit for us as we know only too well how important it is to make these events more accessible to even more people. So much work goes into bringing together such an impressive list of acts and workshops year after year and keeping it free to all.  We are delighted to work with Wellington Town Council to tell even more people about it and introduce them to the Wellington Arts Festival.”

Wellington Arts Festival was founded in 1996 and has gone from strength to strength in recent years, now running two, week-long events each year with 1,400 people attending in October 2018.

As part of the partnership, Nathan Rous PR will be supporting the festival with its promotional activity.

Cllr Cindy Mason-Morris, Mayor of Wellington and Chair of the Wellington Festival stated: “We are delighted that Nathan Rous PR has agreed to handle the public relations for the Wellington Festival which is the UK’s largest Free Access Festival. The expertise, knowledge and passion of the staff at Nathan Rous PR will help to ensure that the Festival continues to grow from strength to strength.  Already, we have greatly improved our social media platform and we have started to reach a greater and more diverse audience thanks to their advice and expert guidance”.
