Pixel Kicks, the Manchester based full-service digital agency, has been appointment by Sefton Park Palm House Preservation Trust to design and develop a brand-new website which is expected to launch in time for summer 2021 when, hopefully, lockdown restrictions will be eased and the attraction will once again be able to welcome visitors and take bookings.
The project was won via a competitive pitch and over the next few months the Pixel Kicks team will create a responsive website that will showcase the Palm House’s complete offering, including highlights from its collection, events, tickets and booking information, as well as its history and heritage.
Sefton Park Palm House Preservation Trust is a registered which was charity set up in 1996 to manage Sefton Park Palm House. The Trust raises all its own income and also makes an annual contribution to Liverpool City Council which goes towards building maintenance and supports an extensive programme of community events. It is also used for private and corporate events, including weddings.
Sefton Park Palm House was built in 1896 and is a Grade ll* listed building. The botanical collection housed there boasts over 200 plants from five continents, including rare species and one that is extinct in the wild.
Matt Hartley – principal sales and account manager at Pixel Kicks – said: ““Sefton Park Palm House is the jewel of Liverpool’s Sefton Park and is an iconic Victorian glasshouse which is much loved by the community and by people from across the region. We want to build on that profile so visitors can really appreciate what this unique venue has to offer, and why it deserves a place on wedding venue shortlists.”
Roy Boardman – director at Sefton Park Palm House Preservation Trust – added: “We want to partner with an agency that has proven experience in the venue sector and that understands what we stand for and what we want to achieve. Pixel Kicks is the ideal fit, so we are now looking forward to developing the site and launching it later this year.”
