Selby 950 Toolkit

2019 is a big year for the Selby District as we host major cycling events in our historic market towns and celebrate a host of significant anniversaries, including 240 years of Selby Canal, 120 years for Selby Park, 100 years of Selby Football Club, 50 years since the formation of Selby Civic Society and of course - the magnificent Selby Abbey’s 950th anniversary.

Selby 950 is a celebration and offers a unique hook; an opportunity to remind our communities why their home is special.

With unique opportunities and lots to celebrate, it’s a fantastic time to come together, get involved and enjoy all that our district has to offer.

The Selby 950 celebrations are well underway and we want to showcase the breadth of events and activities taking place throughout the year – and we want to involve as many of you as possible. 

We've put together a toolkit that includes everything you need to make the most out of Selby 950 in your own marketing, and to enhance your own event promotions.

Branding – Selby 950

LazenbyBrown is an award winning brand design agency and as Creative Partners of Selby 950, they have created an identity that is available for you to use, for all of your events and across your promotion material. In addition to this, we have a range of marketing material available for you to use in your own promotions, which includes:

  • The Selby 950 community logo in orange, black and white (EPS and PNG for overlay, and a JPEG for digital and print use)

Engagement pack - get involved

Whether you’re a seasoned crafter, or an absolute beginner, download our Selby Shines Engagement Activity Pack. It includes suggestions for themed designs, templates, patterns and colour schemes for our celebratory year. All of this can be used to decorate your own home, your street, your shop front or maybe you’d like to run your very own craft and making events in your community.
