Ballyhoo Review of the Year 2021

Ballyhoo | |

It’s been a whirlwind of a year here at Ballyhoo, we’ve had lots of successes, but it’s also been a year of change. We think it’s important to look back and reflect on the year, to see how far we’ve come and what we’ve achieved.

Operating As The World Changes

We went into this year not knowing what to expect, and we’ve operated through numerous lockdowns and lifestyle changes. We’ve navigated Working From Home (whilst juggling childcare and homeschooling!), had fun with creative Zoom backgrounds, and have stuck numerous swabs up our noses in order to keep the team safe. If anything, it’s been a year of learning new ways of operating!

New Team Member

Our team has grown this year, with the addition of Rebecca, who has been supporting both the team and our customers to give world class customer service. Rebecca has blended in well with the team, and is helping to grow the Ballyhoo brand and digital presence.

2021 Projects

Derricks Music

This year we launched a new website for our client Derricks Music, a Swansea-based music and events ticketer and record seller in Swansea city centre. This project included recreating logos and branding, updating the look and feel of the website, and creating control panel functionality for admins to add venues, list event tickets, and albums to purchase.

Birmingham Museums Trust

Following the success of the membership signup system, we developed a new platform for Birmingham Museums Trust to allow patrons to sign up online to support the trust.

National Fire Safety Services

We carried out a major overhaul of the fire risk assessment application we built for National Fire Safety Services, allowing the system to be whitelabelled and deployed quickly for other assessors.


We’ve launched a number of sub-sites for NHS trusts, providing valuable information and the facility to book events providing financial advice for NHS staff.

We’ve also worked on projects to 

  • make continual major improvements to an intranet for a local, specialist credit reference service
  • take over and lightly rebrand a website for a popular independent financial advisor, and 
  • work closely with an Internet solutions provider, specialising in the motorcycle industry, to provide consultation and specialist development services

A busy year then!

Looking Forward to 2022

We are looking forward to starting a new year, with plenty of exciting plans in the works and projects that we can’t wait to share. Until then – we wanted to say a big thank you for your support this year, and we are now off for a Christmas tipple or two!
