Colston Hall campaign crowned at PR awards
5 June 2015, News
JBP may soon have to invest in an new trophy cabinet after adding another award to our collection for our work with Bristol’s Colston Hall over recent months.
Our team won the in the Public Sector and Third Sector category at the PRCA’s Dare Awards in Bristol last night (4 June) for our ‘Thank you for the music’ campaign for Colston Hall.
The judges said it was awarded to JBP for delivering actual tangible results for Colston Hall’s £45 million transformation campaign. In eight months, the campaign has managed to achieve cross party political support in Bristol, the backing of all local MPs and a pledge from Bristol City Council of £10 million towards the project. This was shortly followed by a visit from Danny Alexander, former Chief Secretary to the Treasury, in February 2015, to announce £5 million funding from the Treasury towards the redevelopment costs.
We’re delighted to have won and extremely proud of the team’s work.
