Investment management firm Quilter Cheviot and England’s National Trust are teaming up to support a new live event based on the BBC’s hugely successful TV show Countryfile, with House PR on hand to handle media enquiries and promotion.
Countryfile Live is banking on the enduring appeal of the TV show’s astonishing record breaking ratings – just under nine millions viewers in 2016. The event will bring together all the familiar features of the English countryside over an amazing four days this coming summer.
The venue for Countryfile Live will be the stunning grounds of stately home Blenheim Palace in southern England over the period 4th to 7th August this year.
Organisers are very keen for Countryfile Live to be a family event – and unlike other summer festivals in the UK – are actively encouraging visitors to come with their loved pet pooches to enjoy the fun.
At the launch of event, journalists from all of the major national and regional dailies were invited to an extended Q&A session organised by the House PR team with all of the presenters of Countryfile, including BBC veteran John Craven.
He and the other presenters smilingly posed on top of a huge specially constructed three-metre high haystack.
Countryfile Live organisers are aiming to bring together the very best of the English countryside with exclusive added extras – the country’s largest ever pub garden and an authentic village green. Their bid is that Countryfile Live becomes a permanent fixture of the UK’s summer festival calendar.
At the launch event, photographers captured Matt Baker playing with the cutest little lambs and Adam Henson trying to catch the speediest of hens.
Everyone involved is crossing their fingers that Countryfile Live will be blessed fine summer sunshine!
