The Cult is a multi-award-winning PR agency created by a team of former national newspaper and magazine journalists.
We benefit from a special kind of knowledge that precious few agencies can boast - first-hand experience of life in a bustling newsroom. Whether it’s men’s magazines, women’s magazines, tabloids or broadsheets, members of The Cult have the bylines to prove we know what makes them tick.
Unlike many other PR agencies, we pride ourselves on representing a wide variety of brands, personalities and charities because we believe that good PR shouldn’t be restricted; strong ideas and a solid network of contacts can make anyone or anything sparkle in the press.
And our varied roster complements each other, opening new opportunities and bolstering each other’s press appeal.
Four PR awards in the agency’s first three years show that what we do not only works for our clients, but also grabs the attention of those inside and outside the industry.
And, more importantly, we have fun doing it - and we believe it shows in the creative and imaginative campaigns we create each day.
WHO WE WORK WITH
We’ve worked with some of the biggest brands in the world, top personalities and some of the most exciting and innovative new companies we can find.
Unlike many other agencies, we don’t pigeonhole ourselves as a ‘fashion agency’ or ‘celebrity agency’. In fact, we specialise in just one thing: Getting our clients into the press.
So take a rummage in our box of clients and brands we’ve sprinkled magic over, since The Cult was born. We’re sure you’ll find something that tickles your pickles.
Whoever said ‘work hard, play hard’ obviously knows ALL about The Cult, where we’re lucky enough to do both at the same time, throwing huge events that are as fun as they are effective for our clients.
Events mean that we can show off our clients in a relaxed environment and still gain huge column inches in the next day’s papers. We don’t have a formula for our events - we take each and every one on its own merits and make sure that each and every party is unique, from the venue to the entertainment and everything in between.
So what are you waiting for? Dive in and see what comes out of our brain-boxes and turns into real life:
