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 www.sagittarius-digital.com, 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.

Our coverage of immigration and integration issues has been acknowledged by the Muslim community in Limerick who presented us with a special award for our work in this regard.“We stand by our report in last week’s edition in which we gave voice to an immigrant worker in a Limerick direct provision centre who expressed his concerns about increased radicalisation among young men in the centre. He claimed that staff were subjected to physical attacks and mental abuse by gangs of radical young Muslim men.“Before publishing the report, we interviewed the immigrant worker on two separate occasions. We secured video and documentary evidence that the assaults occurred as he stated and that they were reported to Gardaí at the time. We also have statements from asylum seekers in Limerick direct provision centres testifying to incidents of intimidation and expressing concern over increasing radicalisation among recent arrivals to the centres.“We abhor efforts by Doras Luimni to try to silence the dissenting voice of a vulnerable immigrant worker and their attempts to stifle editorial expression by the Limerick Post. We will spare no effort to defend our commercial and reputational interests in the face of an orchestrated social media campaign that is designed to stifle the very concept of freedom of the press”, the statement concluded.
