Are you aware that Katy of Chichester Copywriter is currently coordinating a group of volunteers who are providing social media marketing support to the event organisers of the inaugural Festival of Chichester?
Katy set up Festival of Chichester’s Facebook and Twitter pages and now the team — including Rachel Soothill of BrightWord Communications, Diana Morgan of Diana Morgan Social Media Marketing and Felicity Masters of West Sussex Library Service — is providing daily posts about the festival to help raise online awareness and boost ticket sales.
Speaking of West Sussex Library Service, Chichester Library is hosting a number of events during the Festival of Chichester. Community Librarian Felicity has secured myriad literary treats, from a book talk with Salley Vickers in Chichester Cathedral to a discussion between a panel of crime authors including Pauline Rowson, Peter Lovesey and Simon Brett at the library.
But it’s not all about books at the library this summer; there will even be a talk with sculptor Vincent Gray and a couple of exhibitions to enliven the senses. Here are some more details:
