Norwich Arts Centre (NAC) reached out to us in January this year. Despite our being next-door neighbours, they actually came to discover us through the great work we’d recently done for Maddermarket Theatre, one of their fellow arts-based organisations based here in Norwich, Norfolk.
Like Maddermarket, NAC use the popular Spektrix platform, a ticketing, marketing and fundraising solution ubiquitous throughout arts organisations. Having just completed the new Maddermarket website, including full online ticket sales and fundraising features, Norwich Arts Centre knew we could meet their needs, and when we delivered our pitch in person, they hired us on the spot. After all, when you put together an award-winning client with an award-winning web agency, great things will happen, right?
The brief was to design and build a new website which not only generated revenue from ticket sales, but also helped drive fundraising in general, and in particular with regard to their 40/40 Regeneration Campaign (#NACregeneration) to raise £40k by summer 2020 in order to unlock a total of £500k of funding from @ace_national. No small task, and the website was to be instrumental in meeting that target.
In addition, the site needed to give NAC a robust platform with which to inform the public of the other great services they provide and work they do in the Norwich community. It might surprise you to know, for example, that the NAC venue is available to hire for weddings, and that they signed the Keychange pledge for a 50:50 gender balance across our performers by 2022.
We’ve worked closely with NAC as if we were one; even a global pandemic hasn’t stood in the way of a flawless website delivery which comes to fruition today. We’re stoked, and we know NAC are, too! Check out the site at https://norwichartscentre.co.uk/. We love how the website looks and works, and we hope you do too.
Please show NAC them your support and donate as little as £1 via their Facebook fundraising campaign, just as they’ve been showing the city of Norwich their support for 50 years. We hope to be showing them GRIT’s support for some time to come, too!
What now? Well, so happy are they with the product and service they’ve received, NAC are now a self-proclaimed ‘GRIT ambassador’. If ever you need a website, and in particular an arts-based and/or Spektrix-enabled website, you’ll find NAC shouting our names from the rooftops.
