Full Fat, the creative communications agency, has been appointed to manage the PR for @TheDriveIn – a drive-in cinema experience that will launch across the country from July.
@TheDriveIn will run for 12 weeks across 11 UK cities, inviting consumers to pull up in their cars to enjoy a whole host of drive in experiences, from stand up comedy to bingo to silent car discos, ahead of watching some of the world’s best-loved films beamed straight into their car radio.
Full Fat will deliver the strategy, press office, press launch and retained activity for the series, which kicked off this week with over 100 pieces of earned editorial running on launch day and a reach of over 550 million to date.
Alan Crofton, @TheDriveIn organiser siad: “We wanted a PR company that had strong experience in delivering experiential activations and events to help us reach a nationwide audience for @TheDriveIn. After discussions with Ella and the Full Fat team, we were confident they would be able to nail the brief and so far the response has been amazing and incredibly positive. We’re happy to be working with Full Fat and looking forward to creating these fun experiences for the UK across the summer.”
Full Fat co-founder Ella McWilliam said: “As our sector in the experience economy pivots, demonstrating innovation and agility in these challenging times, it’s a pleasure to be working alongside Mainstage Festivals to achieve a mass-awareness campaign for @TheDriveIn. Our ambitions are to deliver a strategic and hard-hitting PR campaign for the event series, achieving a viral reach across national and trade media placements.
