Case study:

The bank job
/ The counting house

The Bank Job Escape Rooms & The Counting House hold a special place in our hearts…they were one of our first clients!

They entrusted us with the social media management, content strategy and marketing strategies for the launch of The Counting House Bar and The Bank Job Escape Rooms. Within a year of opening the doors, we were hit by the pandemic and had to work together to pivot on multiple fronts to ensure the businesses survived.

Both businesses are now firm favourites within the Thanet community and Trip Advisor’s Travellers’ choice for Broadstairs.

The escape room journey

Dan & Steve, the owners of The Bank Job, came to us with a completely clean slate for their Escape Room project. It was clear that this was going to be different to anything we’d ever been a part of before!

We helped write and deliver the escape rooms clues, characters and filmed all the content for the The Bank Job and it’s follow up room The Heist. We hired an armourer with sawn off shotguns, filmed a bank robbery and, literally, had an absolute blast across the entire experience.

For obvious reasons, we can’t share the majority of the content here…you’ll just have to go and play the Escape Rooms!


"After working with Harding-Lee Media at the beginning of our journey at The Counting House Bar, we knew we wanted to bring them in for our Escape Room 'The Bank Job Broadstairs.' Nathan and his team not only helped with content creation, website builds and marketing, but were fundamental in the concept, clues, design and roll out of the entire operation. Nathan even starred in some of our video footage when we again trusted HLM with launching our 2nd escape room 'The Heist.' Can't recommend HLM enough!"
