Rewired wins extended national brief for The Handmade Fair


Communications agency, Rewired, has been appointed on a national level to deliver the PR and media relations for The Handmade Fair, supporting two of its shows across the UK.

Headlined by TV presenter and craft enthusiast, Kirstie Allsopp, The Handmade Fair is the ultimate creative day out with hands-on workshops, resident experts, handpicked-sellers and street food.

In a competitive process, Rewired was hired last year to support The Handmade Fair when it debuted in Warwickshire. Following its resounding success, the agency has been re-appointed to support the Ragley Hall show from 11th – 13th May 2018, as well as winning an extended brief to handle the brand new show at Bowood House in Wiltshire taking place from 22nd – 24th June 2018.

Rewired will deliver a series of creative stunts and awareness campaigns, as well as handling the national and regional media relations in the run up to, and during both the shows. 


Natalie Merrix, client services director at Rewired said: “Our work within the live events sector is growing and we feel very privileged to work with a number of high-profile shows like The Handmade Fair, BBC Good Food Show and BBC Gardeners’ World.

“This latest extended brief for The Handmade Fair demonstrates our hands-on team’s ability to deliver creative campaigns, both regionally and nationally, which result in increased footfall and ticket sales for our clients.”

Based in Birmingham with clients across the UK, Rewired specialises in PR, social media and event management across the retail and leisure, education and third sectors. Clients include the Mailbox, Cadbury World, Marco Pierre White restaurants, Mondelez International, and luxury homeware brand, Heals.
