Turning into quarter four, we celebrated the Rugby World Cup, got some amazing accolades for our client work (and for us as an agency) and found a great new boozer. Read on to find out more about what we got up to in October…


To celebrate the Rugby World Cup, we headed up to Newcastle with client Virgin Trains East Coast for some experiential activity with New Zealand and Tonga fans heading into the city for the game.  We asked fans going through the station to show us their best haka-faces, with brilliant results. Here are a few of our faves…


Top Twittering

Our tWItterstitch campaign for the Women’s Institute (see last month’s diary for more info) was included in industry bible, PR Week’s five best campaigns… Thanks Guys!


Food Glorious Food!

In preparation for our annual milestone, BBC Good Food Show Winter  we headed to London to meet with the show team along with our fab clients from Stoves. More will be revealed next month, but here’s a sneak peek of what we’ve got planned. Oh, and we also found a fab new pub for informal meetings The Gilbert Scott. Check it out.

Going for gold

We picked up our second ‘Social Media Agency of the Year’ award.  We were thrilled that Umpf was named the UK’s Best Small Social Media Agency at the UK Social Media Communications Awards 2015 at the Emirates Stadium in London.

And some more…

Then, just a week later, the team attended the Northern Marketing Awards in Manchester where we won another three awards including Best Small Agency.
