The Kelmarsh Trust is an independent charitable trust managing the estate, gardens, brand and the Hall itself in Kelmarsh, Northamptonshire. The charity's objectives are to protect and conserve both the built and natural environments. As a longstanding client, it was natural they would trust us with their brand.
The Trustees maintain Kelmarsh Hall & Gardens in a compassionate manner; sympathetic to its vast history. It was important to them that a new website was built in the same way; giving Kelmarsh Hall a stage to show off its restorations, its beautiful gardens and its stunning rooms.
Kelmarsh Hall commissioned a series of illustrations that were used throughout the backdrops of the website; giving the design little pops of colour and imagery as visitors browse the content and images.
Keeping to its heritage; Kelmarsh Hall had recently rebranded with a soft palette of greys, greens and blues. This was used along with highlights of pink for call to actions and dark blue to give a strong navigation header.
Kelmarsh Hall relies on public donations, legacies and fundraising events. The Seventy9 booking system element was added to their content management system so they could take online payments for the many events they hold. The system allows them to control ticket allocation, take tiered pricing payments and print out lists of attendees ready for the event.
Events are a key part of Kelmarsh Hall. As their events team are always busy, it was imperative that the Seventy9 content management system was easy to use. It gives the team the ability to quickly update information, add events, change photographs and keep the website fluid and current – which is great for the search engines.
“Seventy9 gave a great service through the process and development of our new website for Kelmarsh Hall and Gardens. The team were friendly and professional, providing us with guidance along the way and catering the website design and features specifically for us. We always felt reassured throughout the progression of the website and the team would always be on the end of the phone for any questions or queries we had. We would highly recommend Seventy9 for website design, from ideas and development to the finished product.“
