Building support for a brand new theatre

The Crown Wharf Theatre charity is raising money and community support for a brand new theatre in Stone, Staffordshire. It’s an incredibly exciting project in my home town. The shell of the building was gifted by Joule’s Brewery as part of their canal-side development. The charity needs to raise the funds to transform the space into a professional theatre and needed a communications strategy and expert copywriting to help them achieve this.


I developed a communications and PR strategy for the charity that is focused on building community support and documenting the journey they’re on through effective storytelling and messaging. I also write the copy for a regular email to supporters, and generate attention through press releases and media relations.

“Jamie’s captured multiple key messages from across the project and distilled them into consumable and compelling communications. His work has been invaluable in ensuring we have continued to successfully engage with our communities throughout the pandemic.

“On top of all the expert work, Jamie is reliable, a pleasure to work with and always brings a thoughtful and fun energy. Highly recommended.”
