GEL Studios has been named as a major partner for The Festival of Tomorrow and will be providing all creative services for the 2023 festival.

Over the past six months GEL Studios has worked with the Festival of Tomorrow to upgrade its website and add new functionalities.

The festival team say this creative support greatly benefits the organisers, and will benefit all those attending.

The new website which went live on Monday, 19 December, is said to feature endless resources about the festival and its contributions to the Swindon community. 

As well as website design and development support, the team at GEL Studios will also be providing graphic design and marketing services support too. These efforts will aim to raise awareness of the Festival, and the team hopes even more people will be able to enjoy the shows, talks, interact with the latest science and technology gadgets and speak with the exhibitors.

GEL Studios’ marketing team will also be attending the Festival to include live coverage on their social media channels.

This year, the festival will be held on 17-18 February at the Deanery Academy in Swindon. Events are also being held around Swindon Town Centre, The Brunel Centre, Steam Museum and Health Hydro from 11-19 February.

Centred in Swindon - deemed the hub of UK research and innovation - The Festival of Tomorrow is described as an action packed exploration of the wonders of science, innovation and the arts.

Organised by Rod Hebden and Louise Halliday of New Elements, the festival aims to share knowledge and research which together will shape the future of the world

Graeme Leighfield, Managing Director of GEL Studios, said: “Giving back to the community is what drives us every single day, and our commitment to helping others has never been stronger. This work makes a huge difference to our community and is a true reflection of our vision, which is inspiring change through creativity.

“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Rod and Louise again this year and we look forward to being part of the festival’s growth over the coming years.”

Rod Hebden, Director of The Festival of Tomorrow, said: “It’s been a fantastic experience, yet again, working with Graeme, and the team at GEL Studios. The new website they’ve created for us is absolutely stunning, and I’ve no doubt it’ll give us a stronger foundation for all our engagement throughout the year.

“It’s been great to see the range of services GEL Studios now offers. The design work they’re producing is excellent, they’ve breathed new life and structure into our social media, and the whole team is just a delight to work with - professional, efficient and always on hand when we’ve needed them. We couldn’t be more pleased!”
