Background

Shetland Folk Festival is the UK’s most northerly folk festival with a reputation for excellent music and late night sessions.

Organised by a voluntary committee, the Festival prides itself in reaching out to even the most far flung areas of Shetland. Concerts are organised throughout the isles, consisting of some of the best International, British and Shetland music that the world has to offer.

NB has been a long term partner for the Festival, working to continually improve content, usability and develop bespoke areas of the site to suit the exact needs of the event organisers.

Bespoke Ticketing System

Due to the popularity of the festival, one of the key areas for development within the website was the booking and membership system. Concerts often sell out extremely quickly and as a result, online booking functionality has to be robust and reliable.

Our bespoke booking system improves the experience for attendees and makes admin for the festival organisers much easier.

Year-on-year, our development team has worked closely with the festival committee to understand exactly what is needed to provide the best booking experience for both the organisers and customers. NB has designed and developed a bespoke booking solution to fully manage and organise bookings and memberships for all folk festival events.

Media Rich Experience

In addition to this, other areas of the site provide visitors with a media-rich experience where they can watch videos and listen to material from festival artists as well as browse the archive of Shetland Folk Festival programmes dating all the way back to 1981.

Results

Our commitment to provide an excellent service and dedicated ongoing support has meant the Shetland Folk Festival has used NB Communication as their dedicated digital marketing team for the last 5 years.

"Staff at NB Communication have been really keen to do a brilliant job of our website," says Mhari Pottinger of the Shetland Folk Festival Society. "They have delivered more than what we ever envisaged and their ongoing support and ideas are always welcome."
