Birmingham Live Launch
The Birmingham Mail recently re-branded their website to Birmingham Live, and threw a party to celebrate!
The site is currently the fourth largest regional newspaper website in the country. Publisher Trinity Mirror are hoping to build on this further by re-branding to a younger and fresher vibe. This was reflected in the party location, the Digbeth Dining Club, which offers a variety of street food in a nightclub setting.
The event was well supported by the Birmingham media world – it’s amazing what the promise of a baked chicken tikka flat bread wrap can do (admittedly they are heavenly, but with the mint yoghurt/hot sauce combination, heavenly doesn’t even do it justice!).
Editor-in-chief Marc Reeves gave a brief speech touching on the importance of the website to the Birmingham community. He stressed that this wasn’t just about news, but also as a platform to make Birmingham a better place for all to live (an even better Birmingham is hard to imagine – I know).
Finally, there was just enough time for a few funny pictures. Thanks Birmingham Live for a great night!
