Happy Birthday Hanglands PR!

It’s a good time for this Leeds PR agency – celebrating their 3rd birthday, taking on new staff and welcoming new clients.

Harry Ridgway founded Hanglands PR in September 2018, specialising in music, festivals, hospitality, cultural projects and other events.


In recent months, the agency has welcomed clients including North Yorkshire’s Deer Shed Festival, groundbreaking new UK vinyl pressing plant Press On, Leeds street food pioneers Manjit’s Kitchen, and acclaimed folk duo Jacob & Drinkwater. The agency has also delivered several exciting projects including ‘The Trail For Hope’ art trail in Leeds, for Thought Bubble Festival and Leeds BID.

Long term clients have also but their faith in Hanglands with an expanded role for the agency, including Wakefield’s Long Division Festival and Leeds record label and development organisation Come Play With Me CIC.


Jasmine Sidhu is a welcome addition as agency assistant. She joins from live music institution the Brudenell Social Club. Long-term freelancer Sam Airey is now full-time Creative Lead, with the expectation of more hires before Christmas 2021.

The agency have also bolstered their photography and video production capabilities with talented Leeds based filmmaker Jonny Ridout now looking after video projects and Andrew Benge leading on client and event photography.

Harry Ridgway: “To come out of such a tough time for all of the industries we work with in such good shape is a testament to how hard everyone has worked over the last 18 months. This year especially we’ve taken on some brilliant work and I’m incredibly proud of how we have adapted as a business to handle this increase. Sam has been a key part of the growth of the business and Jasmine is a fantastic and creative addition to the team – I can’t wait to see where we can take Hanglands next, together”-
