Tickbox sponsors Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra

Orchestra04Tickbox are delighted to be the official sponsors of the Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra for 2015-16.

We’ve been passionate advocates of the arts and community engagement since we set up our digital agency in 2006, and are proud to support the inspiring and innovative work of the BMO in Bristol.

As part of the sponsorship we will be working with the orchestra on projects to increase engagement with the community to make classic music more accessible and inclusive.

Tickbox are a full-service digital agency, working with some of the leading charities, arts and culture organisations and businesses in the South West, as well as clients across the UK.

We build websites, develop apps and help develop effective digital strategies – but we are much more than just technology providers.

We come at tech from a business viewpoint – understanding what it is your organisation needs, and with an expert understanding of your sector – ensuring digital directly supports your goals, needs and the way you work.

We develop strong, supportive relationships with our clients, and are proud of the fact that many of our major clients have been with us for several years.

Tickbox is the the digital partner of St Peter’s Hospice and have helped the Bristol charity deliver significant increases in online fundraising and online engagement, as well as supporting the excellent work they do in connecting with the people of Bristol.

We are long-standing web partners of international wetland conservation charity WWT, have helped over 40 South West museums to develop digital strategies, and delivered highly-successful digital engagement projects for Creative England.

Other clients include international architecture and engineering consultancy AECOM, regional arts body Luton Culture and the National Arboretum at Westonbirt.

Tickbox co-owners Claire Sully and John Brunsdon have been closely involved in the arts for a number of years.

Claire conceived, set up and ran the ground-breaking Shepton Digital Arts Festival, is leading a project to develop community and arts space in the former Shepton Prison and is part of the committee for the Wells Festival of Literature. She has also recently had her first short play performed.

John is a former journalist and writer for national newspapers and the BBC, as well as an accomplished semi-professional guitarist.

We’re excited to be getting involved with a musical project that puts creativity and community engagement at its heart – things that fit perfectly with our philosophy – and looking forward to working with the BMO to help it deliver an exciting and inspiring programme in 2015.
