Catapult PR has been awarded the public relations account for Langley Castle in Northumberland.

The Lancashire agency will initially be targeting travel and food writers from around the world, to promote the four star venue.

“We have already started work on the Langley Castle account and have exciting ideas and plans. There is a lot to work on and we shall contribute our general tourism marketing experience, to help bolster aspects of what the castle can offer,” explained managing director, Jane Hunt.

The 14th century castle is located close to Hexham and  its rich history and modern additions – including a helicopter pad, will be promoted particularly to events organisers and wedding parties.

Catapult will also be drawing attention to its new head chef, who is hoping to achieve a Michelin star for the castle.
