Reactor15 Welcomes Dartington Hall

Reactor15 extends a warm welcome to Dartington Hall as they join our design agency’s client portfolio, running a Christmas advert campaign in local media and on Twitter.

Dartington Hall dates back to 1388, but rose to fame from 1925 when it was bought by an American Heiress, Dorothy Elmhirst, and her artisan husband.

The purchase set the scene for the great ‘Dartington Experiment’ which has now run for over 89 years. Since its modern day inception, the estate has played host to luminaries including Nobel Prize winners, writers, musicians, politicians and thinkers. Dartington Hall’s school alumni include the Freud brothers (Sigmund Freud and Clement Freud) and visitors have included Winston Churchill, Sir George Bernard Shaw, Imogen Holst and other luminaries and leading thinkers.

The charity, specialising in arts, social justice and sustainability has been a pioneer for forward thinking since its inception. The framework for the NHS was written at Dartington as was the Labour Post-war manifesto.

More recently, The Dartington Trust has been awarded the Social Enterprise Mark and the White Hart restaurant has won a bronze Taste of the West award for best dining pub.

“We’re very proud to be working with such a reputable, principled and established Devon brand and we hope we can deliver benefits to Dartington Hall as a social enterprise, because we know that every penny gets re-invested back into the community.” said Bear, Marketing Director of Reactor15 . “Our media campaign approach for Christmas has also focused on using traditional and local media in the spirit of keeping things local.”

The ad campaign focuses on an invitation to enjoy a “Dartington Christmas” in the stunning buildings and grounds of the estate. The newspaper and magazine advertising campaign is also being supported by a Twitter Ad campaign.

For more information about booking Dartington Hall during the forthcoming holiday season, either for staff parties, pre-Christmas lunches, Christmas day or the New Year’s Eve Gala Ball, please call Claire on 01803 847 147 or email

We have just launched a new app to help reduce waiting times in hospitals across Devon and Cornwall. The app, NHSquicker, allows people to view up-to-date waiting times for local emergency departments and minor injuries units. It also provides information regarding distance and time to different treatment centres, based on the user's location. Reactor15 have been working with Exeter Health and Care IMPACT Network, a collaboration between the NHS across Devon and Cornwall and academics from the University of Exeter to build an app which is widely available for smartphones and tablets, on Apple and Android. The NHSquicker app took six months to build and is a fully native app developed using our own custom framework. Using a native platform which allowed us to build a fast, responsive and reliable experience to users, when accuracy and speed of information is very important. The app also provides information about less urgent NHS services, including GPs, pharmacies, sexual health services, dentists and opticians. Mike Saunders, Managing Director of Reactor15 said: "It’s great, once again, to be involved in building a really useful NHS tool. We were asked to build an app which will not only help reduce waiting times in our local hospitals but will also help patients make the right choices with regards to how and where they receive their treatment. We believe our native app platform is both robust and versatile enough to meet the needs and brief of Exeter Health and Care IMPACT Network." Reactor15 have a good working relationship with the NHS and have already built the award winning HANDi Paedatric, POPs apps and the Devon and Wakefield Formularies.
