Publicising your class or event
If you’ve hired our space for your class, workshop, performance or other event, your thoughts will now be on publicising and promoting it. This page will help you.
Publicity is primarily your responsibility. You might, for example, be thinking of posts and/or videos on the main social media platforms (especially Facebook and Instagram), plus posts and comments in local Facebook and Nextdoor groups. These needn’t cost you anything apart from your time.
You might also be thinking of printing flyers to distribute around the area. It’s worth considering how you’ll distribute flyers, how you can get them in the hands of people likely to attend and whether you can encourage any shops and hospitality or tourist venues to display some. When designing your flyer, consider that it may be displayed on a noticeboard, showing one side only, so one of the sides needs to be both eye-catching and informative, with all the necessary date(s) and time(s), venue details (see below), price(s) and the all-important where-to-book / where-to-buy-tickets.
Have a think also about websites and publications that offer free or cheap listings. There aren’t as many of these as there used to be but do have a look.
You may even consider advertising, if it works in your budget. That might be a Facebook promotion or something in a local publication/newspaper, for example.
Help from Unity
We want to support you, too, of course. We may not be your main source of publicity but we do want you to succeed!
If you have a flyer, we’ll display it on our reception noticeboard and we’ll keep a few behind the counter in case anyone asks how they can book a place. (We don’t have the space to keep piles of flyers for every event out on display, though.)
We’ll also, in most cases, include your class, workshop, performance or other event in our website listings, so that people can see it alongside our in-house offerings (but this does depend on the nature of what you’re doing).
And, in many cases, we’ll also include it in our social media listings and publicity.
Website listings and social media are not guaranteed and are not part of your room hire, but they are effective ways we want to support you if we can.
To help us, please complete the form below. Done promptly, it will ensure you provide the right information and images at the right time, as we can’t go chasing you for it.
We wish you every success!
