Stowford Press has appointed independent creative agency Pulse to handle its Ashes activation at premier cricket pitches across the country this summer following a three-way pitch.

Now in its second year as sponsors of the England Cricket Team, Stowford Press has briefed Pulse with creating an experiential activation and social media drive complimenting a day at the Ashes and raising awareness of Stowford Press cider amongst cricket fans.

The activity is set to run from 10 July to 16 September 2013 across 12 grounds and will act as a vehicle to drive engagement with Stowford Press. A PR and advertising campaign for the brand will support the activity which will also link to activations in the off and on trade.

Stowford Press brand manager, Matthew Langley, said: “Our sponsorship activation this summer is a key part of our marketing plans for Stowford Press so it is important for us to have the right Agency as a partner.”

Mike Spicer, managing director at Pulse, added: “We're absolutely thrilled to be working with Weston's and Stowford Press for what promises to be the biggest sporting event in Britain this year, and one of the most famous competitions in the world.”
