Free support & promotion opportunities

Warrington Arts Council can help organisations spread the word about their activities and events in a number of ways.

Poster Boards

Our Warrington Market poster site.

Warrington Arts Council manages a series of poster boards located in prime positions within the town’s bus station and market to promote local arts and culture groups. With the large footfall in both areas, they are a great way to let people know about your next charitable or not-for-profit event for free. Spaces are much in demand and can be requested by emailing our publicity manager. Please bear in mind at busy times it may not be possible to accommodate all requests.

Facebook

Warrington Arts Council will happily promote and share your events on our Facebook page. If there is something specific you would like us to promote, please let us know by emailing our publicity manager. See below for further advice on promoting your organisation using social media.

Radio Warrington 1332AM

Warrington Arts Council works closely with the town’s community radio station, Radio Warrington 1332AM.  If you would like your arts, cultural or heritage group or event featured on the station please email our publicity manager.

Warrington Voluntary Action (WVA)

Warrington Arts Council recommends all not-for-profit arts, drama, heritage and musical groups register their details with Warrington Voluntary Action. Based at the Gateway in Warrington, WVA provide free support, specialist advice and a unique “reflect and review tool” which will allow your group to review its activities and reflect upon its strengths and possible areas for development.  For more information visit https://www.warringtonva.org.uk/membership
