first_imgWebsite captures all the drama of stunning new Marlowe Theatre project Sagittarius’ Director of Digital, Nick Towers, said: “The New Marlowe Theatre development is bold, modern and fresh so we wanted to create a website that reflected this and would capture all the excitement and emotion of the project.“We decided to take visitors on an interactive, documentary-style journey through the project’s progress, from start to finish and beyond.“As well as being the primary source of information about the project, its progress and the fund-raising campaign, the website includes a 3D interactive tour of the new-look theatre; an animated film clip showing the modern new building rising from the Marlowe’s foundations; and video clips of stars such as Orlando Bloom talking about their passion for the project and why they are supporting it.”The website also shows visitors how they can play their part, with tips on organising fund-raising events and information on how to donate, and offers the chance to enter competitions and sign up for regular newsletters to follow the development’s progress.A blog spot will feature the thoughts of those involved in the project, including developers, Canterbury City Council and Marlowe Theatre management, and theatre-lovers will be able to book tickets and keep in touch through an events calendar with forthcoming Marlowe productions, which are to be staged at alternative venues across the county while the old building is closed.The website also takes a nostalgic look back at some of the Marlowe Theatre’s greatest performances and gives visitors the chance to share their own memories of the venue.Celia Glynn-Williams, Assistant Head of Culture and Communications at Canterbury City Council, said: “We set Sagittarius Marketing a challenging task as the site needed to bring together the three different but vital strands of this great project – the fund-raising appeal designed to encourage people to support the new theatre; the Marlowe Theatre and the productions it will be staging while the theatre is closed; and the information about the building work as it progresses.“We hope it will encourage individuals, businesses and schools to stay in touch, get involved and donate money so that, together, we can make this fantastic vision a reality.”Celia added: “We wanted the website to have a real wow factor, reflecting the clean, modern design of the new building itself. It needed to be friendly and easy to navigate, provide a comprehensive overview of the development and show all the wonderful benefits and opportunities the new theatre will offer.“We commissioned Sagittarius Marketing because they have an excellent reputation for producing entertaining, captivating and compelling website experiences and they’ve done a fantastic job. The New Marlowe Theatre website is engaging and informative and promotes a real sense of pride in what is a very innovative project.”For further information about digital services, visit, call 08450 553883 or email [email protected] to editors:Sagittarius Marketing is an award-winning full-service advertising and marketing agency, providing a comprehensive portfolio of services to local, regional and national clients.

By Monday afternoon, however, it emerged that a second Health and Safety audit was to be conducted and that a reopening of the complex could be expected in September. In another twist, it is now confirmed that a rescue plan is again being implemented.Board member, Cllr Jim Long told the Limerick Post that they have received a pledge of €200,000 from Limerick Regeneration to refurbish the complex.“We are getting €100,000 from the Board of Management and €55,000 each from Limerick City Council and another Limerick Regeneration fund, as well as €44,000 from the Department of Education and a very real possibility of €130,000 from Limerick City Council that has been allocated to sports by the council“That gives us a total of €584,000 and we will also be launching a fundraising campaign and  implementing a streamlining of the complex.“I’m now confidently putting it out that this is  a rescue plan and there should be no more talk of St Enda’s Sports Complex going out of business”.

In this Video Spotlight, Chu discusses how two REITs, Invesco Mortgage Capital and New York Mortgage, have lost around 80% of their value in the last month, as their balancing on distressed levels.Earlier this month, REIT prices have seen a dramatic decline, opening up a good investment opportunity, according to Seeking Alpha. REITs are not dead, as some may suggest.“Book value per share should be down for every mortgage REIT so far in the quarter,” Seeking Alpha says. “The main difference will be the magnitude of the decline. This is where different analysts and investors may come to dramatically different numbers.”As the role of non-bank lenders has shifted in the past few years, regulators are considered allowing further growth for these mortgage institutions and REIT, Wall Street Journal reports.
