Jamie joins the team as Creative Director, assuming a wider creative role at the business as well as leading the event division. Jamie said;
“Having spent the last year developing and managing an array of unique and creative events, it’s clear there is both an appetite and requirement for something a little out of the ordinary.
When the lewislewis journey began little over a year ago, our primary aim was to curate a schedule of exciting events that provided an element of escapism here on the Isle of Man. Both private and business events are a huge part of island life; in our small community the right event can have a huge impact.
As our island is so small, getting that unique theme or concept can be difficult. Our point of difference lies in that we never use a theme twice, with each customer getting their own one off event experience, tailored to their own personal requirements.
Peggy & Mills share our culture and passion for delivering creative and impactful solutions. By joining forces, I can continue to lead the way in developing events and campaigns that ‘buck the trend’, with the added support of their superstar team of designers, writers and digital wizards.”.
As well as servicing businesses, Peggy & Lewis will also host public events. Since merging on the 1st March the firm have hosted the Island’s first three day Gin Festival and a grassroots business festival, Gefachella.
Next up is ‘Gef’s Big Top’ at the Bushy’s TT Village.
