Dave Ryding

Eight years ago Vital was asked to sponsor an unfunded up and coming British skier to help him get to the Vancouver Olympics in 2010.

We met with Dave Ryding, a uniquely talented skier, humble and charming, not big on publicity (which wasn’t a good sign), but about as genuine, down to earth, gritty and real a human as you will ever find.

We agreed to sponsor Dave and have supported him ever since, on Sunday the British media woke up to see a Brit leading one of the toughest races on the Slalom World Cup tour Kitzbühel, Austria, he went on to finish second, behind the world champion Marcel Hirscher.

Every step of Dave’s journey which is long, lonely and very hard he has been grateful and appreciative for the support we have given him.

Dave Ryding, congratulations on your awesome achievements, we salute you.

Here for the Beer… Awards!

Jeremy, Lauren and Alice hosted Marston’s Beer Company team at the annual Guild of Beer Writers Awards 2016, held in the swanky Park Lane Hotel, London.

The bash, which celebrated the best beer writers in the industry across all fields such as blogs, social media, books and trade press writing also played host to highlighting the ‘Brewer of the Year’ which was picked up by non other than Marston’s own Master Brewer and MD of Marston’s Beer Company, Richard Westwood!

A great evening was had by everyone, all helped of course by the odd glass (or two!) of beer.

Cheers to that.

Jesus Christ Superstar

This year the Vital team went to see Jesus Christ Superstar for a summer evening outing.

Set in the fabulous Regent Park Open Air Theatre, the cast and crew put on an amazing show that had there been a roof to blow off it most certainly would have been.

Warsteiner Electric Thursday kicks off Formula E London in style!

Ace Hotel, Shoreditch played venue host to ‘Electric Thursday’, a party held on behalf of Warsteiner to help celebrate their sponsorship of Team ABT Schaeffler in Formula E, London.

New designs are order of the day

If you happen to stop off at one of the 51 Marston’s Carvery pubs around the country this summer, you’ll see some of our fantastic new menus in action.

The pubs are popular with families and our innovative stepped stack design, coupled with bright and user-friendly layouts, have now made it easier for everyone to find what they want to order.

Accompanying promotional posters and point-of-sale have introduced new dishes and special promotions and feedback from across the estate have been overwhelmingly positive from bar staff and customers alike.

We gave Vodafone a warm reception!

We gave Vodafone a warm reception!

When Vodafone set about redesigning the reception of its global headquarters in London, we answered the call.

Taking a lead from global retail store designs, we helped pull together stories from different parts of the business and present them to colleagues, partners and visitors via engaging digital displays and interactive presentations.

The space was transformed and now waiting for meetings has never been more interesting and informative.
