Freeview to unveil Great British Tea Party roadshow campaign with Gekko

Freeview will be inviting shoppers to experience the Great British Tea Party this summer with its new roadshow campaign, which aims to promote the value of the service.

Freeview will look to celebrate the British summer in its roadshow, which has been conceived, designed and executed by Gekko, and is set to feature a green astro-turf area complete with deck chairs, picket fencing and a pop-up marquee serving refreshments.

Daniel Todaro, managing director of Gekko, said: “With the ‘empty’ summer of 2013 upon us, without Jubilee celebrations or Olympics Games to capture the excitement of the nation, we were keen to create a piece of experiential activity that really brought to life the best of British and what better way to celebrate the heat wave than with a proper British summer fete? We’re always delighted to work alongside Freeview and create something that will really surprise and delight consumers.”

There will also be Freeview ambassadors on hand to explain Freeview, as well as giving shoppers the chance to take part in a special prize draw to win a six month subscription to Netflix.

James Chambers, retail marketing manager for Freeview, added: “We are really looking forward to getting this show on the road this summer. With over 95 per cent of the most-watched TV programmes available subscription-free, we will be letting people know that they could be making considerable savings in the long-run by choosing an alternative to pay-TV. Value has always been really important to us and we have worked with Gekko to create a roadshow that excites, educates and engages the British public.”

The roadshow, which is set to take place throughout August, will be coupled with above the line activity.
