Parliament Week

Baroness d'Souza talking at a Parliament Week event

We are just drawing breath from an action-packed Parliament Week, which saw the Four Colman Getty Campaigning and Digital teams working with the public engagements team at the House of Commons to promote a diverse range of events, from talks and debates to walking tours and Hack days.Highlights included Paddy Ashdown and his ‘speech super turbo charger’, Max Atkinson, in discussion about the art of political speechwriting; a look at Dickens’ time as a Parliamentary reporter; an evening with Lord Kenneth Baker delving into the archives of the Cartoon Museum; a 48-hour ‘hackathon’ with Rewired State; and a public debate on press regulation. A large part of our role involved working with a range of partners arranging events for Parliament Week, from the Hansard Society and the UK Speechwriters’ Guild to the RSA and the English-Speaking Union.We created a series of visual graphics about the Houses of Parliament and democracy which could be shared online. Working closely with the team we offered strategic advice and implementation support with Parliament Week’s social media channels to ensure the campaign had as far and wide a reach as possible, which resulted in over 2.4 million impressions on Twitter feeds alone relating to Parliament Week.Meanwhile, coverage highlights included pieces on BBC News online, BBC Democracy Live, BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, The Times, Telegraph.co.uk, Guardian.co.uk, London Evening Standard, Time Out and lots of quirky listings on the Londonist.
