Marketing agency goes into administration

Banana Kick created the dinosaur trail experience which saw a T-Rex appear at Trinity Leeds

Marketing agency Banana Kick, which recently created the successful dinosaur trail around Leeds city centre, has appointed administrators.

The Leeds-based agency which was founded in 2008 has appointed Julien Irving and Patrick Lannagan of Mazars who have said the company has ceased trading.

Banana Kick, was led by co-founder Gary McCall and worked with brands including Decathlon, LNER and Leeds United.

It had previously employed 43 staff and with a £4m turnover, although the latest company accounts show it had increased its bank borrowing from £5,453 in 2019 to £100,000 in 2020.

The administrators have been approached for a comment.
