With ten UK stores, Barker and Stonehouse has a reputation for quality and craftsmanship so we wanted a fittingly wonderful person to help us mark the occasion. We invited the doyenne of cookery along to generate the level of excitement and engagement this prestigious occasion deserved.

We created a targeted media relations six-month plan topped off by the all-day press event featuring Mary. This included bespoke content packages for each media contact, including interview opportunities, teasers, competitions, images, Q&As, store visits and more.
