Eventful times at eskimosoup

eskimosoup has appointed a new marketing and events manager to drive campaigns for some of Yorkshire’s top events venues.

Richard Quelch has joined the team to deliver ongoing marketing services for new clients including: the Bay Filey, Pickering Showground and Beverley Polo Club.

Rich began his marketing career in Leeds where he worked for a recruitment company for 3 years. Rich followed his heart by returning to Hull to become Events Manager for Hull Truck Theatre before being approached to join the eskimosoup team.

Rich had his loyalties tested when eskimosoup played Hull Truck at the Health Central Human Table Football Cup in July and bagged a hat trick against eskimosoup hence why he is such a happy bunny in the picture.*

Since joining the company he has been taken off the naughty step for his goal scoring misdemeanours and is now a key part of the marketing and events team: “I am genuinely excited to be a member of eskimosoup and now I finally get to say, I am now part of that creative and fun company!”

His role involves developing a business development strategy and events programme for sites owned and operated by the some of the region’s most successful entrepreneurs. The three sites are:

Pickering Showground is a 110 acre site, set in North Yorkshire, and is a suitable venue for a variety of different events. The site incorporates a 4,600 square metre events arena and hosts the annual Pickering Steam Rally.

The Beverley Polo Club plays host too many television filming opportunities. With around 10 home games a season, UK touring tournaments, the annual Yorkshire Nations Cup tournament and Tribfest; Europe’s largest tribute band music festival.

The Bay Filey boasts a choice of excellent dining, retail and leisure facilities at the heart of miles of spectacular Yorkshire coastline and stunningly beautiful Yorkshire Wolds and Moors.

*Hull Truck went on to beat St Stephen’s in the final, whilst eskimosoup suffered quarter final elimination due to some dodgy refereeing and sloppy defending.
