Situation

Richard Burton was one of Wales' greatest actors. This campaign seeks to recognise his status on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as helping to establish scholarships in Burton's name at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.

Solution

Working in conjunction with the Western Mail, the Welsh Rugby Union and Principality Building Society, the campaign will co-ordinate a formal application for a star in Burton's name. The campaign will be promoted in the Western Mail and by the Welsh Rugby Union and will tie in with the opening of the Richard Burton Theatre at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in the summer.
