Retro John Barnes and tales from the marketing desk…

After an absence of a couple of weeks, we’ve returned to the blog to report what we’ve been upto in the Marketing Department and beyond, and explain about “Retro John Barnes”!

Unity has a huge amount of shows passing through our doors every year; well over 100 different events of varying sizes and needs! Inevitably this means we have to find a balance between the short term projects (usually, but not always shows coming up in the next 3 months) and long term projects. Our biggest project of the last few months has been preparations for our new box office system, which, fingers crossed will make online bookings easier and cheaper, in person booking faster and will generally make everyone’s life easier! Expect the new box office joy to go online at the end of July!

We’ve also started planning for our Autumn season launch, where we’ll be releasing a mini-brochure as well as our new-look full brochure. We’ve already confirmed one or two productions including the return of a couple of internationally acclaimed companies, award-winning comedians and the next of our popular acoustic nights!

You’ve hopefully noticed we’ve revamped the website which should be increasingly cool and funky. We added a facebook feed on some of the pages so you can keep up to date with us at all times!

In other news we have 2 advertising spaces in our season brochure which we’ll be approaching companies about using! Current advertisers are Host and The Carriageworks at Hope Street Hotel – follow them on twitter for all the latest news and offers (we’re a particular fan of Host’s curry!).

And finally, the moment you’ve been looking forward to, we have been given a collection of retro John Barnes Footballer Of The Year 1988 posters by one of our lovely Unity Angels, they’re pretty cool and all proceeds we make from selling them will go to our youth theatre! If you’d like to get hold of one, then comment below with your e-mail address and I’ll e-mail details!

Marketing, bizarre and never boring.
