Countryfile Live

“Dawn and her team are a joy to work with. To have their experience and support in what was the launch year for Countryfile Live was invaluable and a cornerstone in us delivering over 125,000 visitors in our first campaign. I would have no hesitation in recommending Boom to any event business looking to elevate their campaigns with fresh and innovative ideas.”Tom Clarkson, Producer, Countryfile Live
The First Hippo on the Moon

Untitled

For the world premiere of David Walliams’ The First Hippo on the Moon, Boom built a campaign to go where no Hippo has gone before by utilising a dynamic outdoor campaign to welcome this explosively funny space adventure to The Royal Hippodrome, Eastbourne. The Boom team continue to use their expertise in marketing the 2017 UK tour.
Dead Sheep

Dead sheep

“Dead Sheep was our first national tour and without the help of Boom Ents and especially Laura, who looked after our account, we would have found things really tough. She was accessible, open to suggestions, and we found the regular marketing meetings essential. Boom are a one stop shop from designing the artwork to getting the productions into the marketplace. They have good relationships with venues, and are mindful of producers’ budget restrictions. An excellent combination.”Denise Silvey, Producer, Dead Sheep
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show

Very Hungry Caterpillar

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show is a faithful adaptation of the much loved children’s story by Eric Carle. The production wiggled into the West End for a run at The Ambassadors Theatre before heading off on a UK tour. To ensure exceptional sales, Boom has built a campaign that brings the story to life and establishes the brand as a new live experience.
Showstopper! The Improvised Musical

Showstopper

Already an established theatrical fringe hit, Boom gave Showstopper! The Improvised Musical a West End re-brand. For the new concept creation, Boom printed 5 foot high polystyrene letters to promote the appeal of the show’s spontaneity while maintaining the credibility of a professional theatrical production.
All or Nothing 2017

Trainspotting Live opened with a bang at The Vaults, with help from Boom’s punchy full service marketing campaign including a poster design which played homage to the original iconic film poster. Fans, journalists and even Irvine Welsh himself have taken to Twitter to share their rave reviews. Choose life. Choose no-holds-barred marketing campaigns. Choose Boom.
FriendsFest

FriendsFest

“Boom Ents provided a first rate service on “FriendsFest”, successfully managing the demands and reporting complexities of a sell-out tour. While to the outside eye, managing the marketing on a project that has completely sold out on release may look like less of a challenge, in reality the skill to co-ordinate an on-sale plan that manages to galvanise that demand and then oversee the release of extra ticket allocations as increased capacities become available, requires a dynamic team of experienced professionals in their field – that’s what Boom Ents are.”George Wood, Producer, FriendsFest
Eugenius!

Eugenius

Eugenius! is the kitsch, comic book musical that became an overnight hit after a premiere concert performance at the London Palladium. Boom developed the brand from scratch to emanate the themes of the show. The campaign was rolled out across multiple platforms resulting in 1 million people seeing the final concept.
Dinner at the Twits

Dinner At The Twits

Dinner At The Twits became the ‘must-do’ dining experience for 2016 thanks to Boom’s expert digital advertising and social media marketing. The campaign engaged a community of savvy London foodies & event attenders in order to create a ‘foodie buzz’ across London.
Footloose the Musical 2017

FL-420x140px

The legendary 80’s musical Footloose is back for 2017! Gareth Gates and Maureen Nolan will #CutLoose once more, with Boom providing the full service campaign for the return of this smash hit tour, including a West End run at the Peacock Theatre.
