The Year of Culture 2019 is an initiative by Horsham District Council to raise the profile of culture and heritage within the Horsham district, with a focused programme of events across 2019 which will be supported by residents and visitors.

The Challenge

This exciting project was won by our team largely based on our previous work on Horsham’s most successful outdoor event, Horsham Piazza Italia, which we continue to support (now in its 12th year). This new initiative was a blank canvas requiring close collaboration with a dedicated team at HDC to ensure brand standards and core messaging was consistently applied throughout their new website. In addition, there were significant time pressures applied to ensure the site was ready for the launch event in September 2017.

Our Solution

The Britweb team worked closely with HDC to fully understand the complex nature of the brief. The site has many functions which will need to change over time so a robust plan needed to be in place to achieve all the objectives both for launch and as the site grows. The project included:

How we Added Value

The nature of this project required robust project management from our team. The website was well-received and created a hub for the events, fully branded to the HDC.

The Results

The website was launched ahead of schedule and to great acclaim. In its first 6 months, the site received over eight thousand page views.
