The internationally-renowned Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) joins the agency’s growing client roster following a hotly contended tender process. It also adds award-winning production company, Lion Eyes, to its books.
The Beattie Manchester PR team put in the performance of their lives to win the LIPA pitch, beating off stiff competition from across the country. One of theUK’s most prominent institutions for the performing arts, LIPA is headed up by Mark Featherstone-Witty and was co-founded by lead patron Sir Paul McCartney.
The agency, which specialises in education PR, has been retained to position LIPA as the first choice UK institution for the performing arts, both for performers and those who make performance possible.

Its previous clients include Peter Kay, ITV1, Asda, BBC and Universal Pictures. It also boasts agency collaborations with marketing agencies including JWT, Dinosaur and ViVid.
This new relationship will see B2B PR experts Beattie working with Lion Eyes to promote the company’s advertising, marketing and production offering nationally, as well as launch its new post-production facility, The Den.

The team we have in place now has a wealth of knowledge in the arts and entertainment industry, having previously worked with clients including Cirque du Soleil, Pathe Productions and a number of record producers.
