CULTURAL AND PRAGMATIC INSTIGATORS
The Revels Office is a consultancy that combines strategy with delivery to help cultural organisations make memories, make money and make sense.
We exist to make culture more relevant and resilient, and readily available in people's lives. We do this by transforming the world's visitor destinations into highly magnetic and truly responsible businesses, using culture as a catalyst to enrich people and places in unexpected ways.
Our team is trusted to set out action plans for improvement and growth in commercial, audience and organisational development. Working across sectors and disciplines, we uniquely bridge between commerce, community and culture, facilitating an invaluable exchange and new solutions.
WORKING WITH WORLD-RESPECTED INSTITUTIONS
“We really enjoyed working with The Revels Office on what was, I know, a difficult commission. I appreciate how patient both Kate and Sarah were in trying to refine our brief, and to understand what we were trying to achieve. They made the process of developing the strategy fun and gently guided us when we started to go off piste!! I would love to work with you all again and hope to in the future."
CEO, Wentworth Woodhouse.
We delivered a 10 year business plan for Southbank Sinfonia at St John’s Smith Square. The plan was designed to be a compelling and realistic roadmap for the orchestra and venue as a newly combined organisation, ready to be used for funding applications, internal management, partnership approaches and wider advocacy.
We delivered a review of the Museum’s commercial events business. The project involved analysing the current and prospect market for events and related business lines, sales and marketing planning, and a review of feasibility against internal resources, process and organisational priorities.
We worked with Secret Cinema on their community outreach programme which involved interpreting show content to create experiences for local young people and school children. We managed the full process, from setting budgets, managing schedules and creative programming workshops, to coordinating marketing and outreach to community groups, schools and individuals direct.
MAKE MEMORIES. MAKE MONEY. MAKE SENSE.
We deliver culture strategies, business transformation programmes, audience development plans, events & outreach programmes, internal staff training and external feedback facilitation, alongside retail, membership, ticketing and venue hire growth strategies.
