Conversion from Umbraco to WordPress website

It meant they could also benefit from the pro version of the number one WordPress tool for events called the events calendar that we installed, so they could easily manage the events that they put on at the theatre & museum. They didn’t want the design of the site changed, but rather they wanted the engine of the site changed but not the body.
