Lymm Festival seeking to strengthen publicity team with three new volunteers


LYMM Festival is looking to strengthen its publicity team and is planning to recruit three new volunteers to carry out specific roles.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the normal Festival had to be cancelled both this year and last year. ‘In person’ events were not possible but the Committee put on a small number of successful on-line events.

Chairman Ian Marks said: “We really hope we can get back to normality next summer. Some of our events sell out but others need more of a push. That is why we want to build up the team looking after our publicity. It is an all-year-round commitment but the volunteers will be especially busy in the run-up to the summer Festival.
Brief details of the kind of people we are after are given below but if you are interested in finding out more visit https://www.lymmfestival.org.uk/strengthening-our-publicity-team/
Publicity Lead – responsible for producing a strategy to publicise events and managing the rest of the team to make this happen. Background in marketing or publicity is desirable but must be a good communicator and organiser.
Social Media – Prepares and publishes posts for various social media platforms after liaising with event organisers. Must have experience in using social media and ability to communicate messages effectively.
Press & Newsletters – Writes regular newsletters for sending out to the mailing list of subscribers and writes occasional press releases. Must have ability to write in a clear and engaging way.
Ian added: “We are very proud of what we do, and new volunteers will be contributing to a successful venture which is now a well-established part of the Lymm calendar. If you are interested or want to find out more, please contact our secretary Alison at secretary@lymmfestival.org.uk
