Press & PR

Market Square Group events always capture the attention of the local media and public, before, during and after they take place.

We will work with you to promote your event to ensure it gets the coverage it deserves - in print and online.

Each event will have its own flyer and poster design:

                 

Social media is a key driver to events and we will set up Facebook event pages and publicise using our Twitter page.

We would encourage you to share our updates and posts with communities local to the event area.

Here are some examples of media coverage received for our events.
