The challenge

People were flocking to Cheltenham Festivals events long before we got involved – but they constantly strive to improve visitor experience, so asked for our expert help. They needed an app to help visitors to navigate The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival 2018. And they needed it quickly.

We happily obliged, offering our software development services for free! Not only are Cheltenham Festivals a registered charity and local neighbour, we also love the work they do to enhance the town’s cultural landscape.

“We are delighted to work with a Cheltenham-based business on this exciting digital project.  As a registered charity their support is invaluable to us in helping us to realise our digital ambitions for the future.”

Ian George, Cheltenham Festivals

The solution

The timescale was tight, so we rolled-up our sleeves and got to work, building this simple to use iOS and Android app in under four weeks, from concept to delivery. It debuted at the Times and Sunday Times Literature Festival, from 5-14 October 2018.

This was the official app for The Festival, guiding visitors through a 10 day, 450 event, 1000 speaker programme, with searchable event and venue details and Festival Village maps.

“This exciting digital project has enhanced the Festival experience for our visitors. The App is just one of the ways we are planning to use digital to enhance the Festival experience for our audience.”
