Enable's sponsorship deal helped put historic Axbridge Pageant on the road

Enable Promotional Marketing, based in the historic town square but serving major brands all around the world, is providing a package of sponsorship money and technical support - including database management for organisation logistics, ticketing systems, payment gateways, advice, support, and the Pageant’s website. Over the last half a century, Axbridge Pageant has become a key part of Somerset’s rich tradition of carnivals and community events. Considered one of the few remaining historical pageants left in the United Kingdom, the performance is a spectacular re-enactment celebrating 2,000 years of Axbridge history - from Saxon times through to the present day. The next one will be held over three days in the last weekend of August 2020 (subsequently 2022); each day in front of over 600 people, a cast of upwards of 400 local performers will be supported by over 100 volunteers… all of whom who give their time, experience, and skill to ensure this unique event goes from strength to strength. First performed in 1967 to celebrate the opening of the by-pass along the former Strawberry Line rail track, the Axbridge Pageant was such a success it was decided to repeat it… and since then has been held every ten years. Says the Pageant Director John Bailey: “We are massively grateful for Enable’s support, without which we would simply not be able to put on such a spectacular show. We will still be looking for other sponsorships to secure the financial foundations we need for such a huge event, but this is a massive start for us.” Enable provides project management support to some of the world’s biggest brands for their promotions online, via social media, in-store, at events or on-pack. Although the business works in Latin America, across Europe, Asia- Pacific and the USA it proudly supports the local community.

How we supported Axbridge heritage Trail...

As part of a community project Enable have been supporting Axbridge Heritage Trail. The trail takes you through Axbridge’s history and display content while you are on the trail. Local historians have provided interesting historical facts about the properties found on the trail and Enable have provided a scannable platform to allow 'trail visitors' to visualise Axbridge’s past.

QR codes have been placed in each of the participating properties and a virtual map to help guide the tour.

Enable support a wide range of community activations and causes, and we were very happy to be part of this project delivering the build, technical guidance, and content placement.

Come and visit the trail in Axbridge and see the historical wonders of this medieval town.
