Southwell Minster

You have helped us create a website which is attractive, informative and intriguing, and communicates brilliantly the spiritual heart of the Minster around its community, as well as being factual and informative about its history and architectural significance... Many thanks to you from all of us at the Minster.’
The Very Reverend Nicola Sullivan
Dean of Southwell

InsideOut Musician

InsideOut Musician

InsideOut Musician is an online collaboration of professional musicians who offer creative courses for other musicians, along with a regular online Ceilidh which brings people together from around the world.

The website needed to communicate the spirit of the venture, whilst offering easy access to the course listings and a seemless booking experience. This was achieved by integrating Wordpress with event calendars, Woocommerce, Stripe and Zoom.

‘What a transformation! You have done a superb job and built a site that is truly fit for purpose. Not only is it visually spot-on, but the functionality as I experienced it, is outstanding. There is no ambiguity and navigation is a doddle – user friendliness at its best. This is just what we needed – and more. Many thanks and congratulations for having created an outstanding website of which we can all be justifiably proud.
Chairman, LMP

Envoy worked closely with the graphic designer, Cat Fuller, on the revamp of the London Mozart Players' website.
