Clive Reeves Public Relations (CRPR) will be dishing up PR for the fifth annual Colmore Business District Food Festival, after being appointed for the fourth year running.

The award-winning PR consultancy, which recently relocated to Colmore Row, will carry out PR and communications for the food festival, which is taking place on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th July in Victoria Square. An independent business, with a wealth of expertise in retail and hospitality, CRPR is no stranger to publicising food, with festival participants Opus at Cornwall Street and Bar Opus already clients of the agency.

The Colmore Food Festival will be serving up delicious food and drink available from Birmingham’s business quarter, the Colmore Business District (CBD). With 25 venues taking part, this year is set to be bigger and better than ever, with businesses offering tasty dishes for just £3. As well as fantastic food and drink, there will also be live cookery demonstrations from top chefs in the district including Aktar Islam from the critically-acclaimed Lasan group, live jazz music, outdoor theatre and other entertainment.

Clive Reeves, managing director at CRPR, said: “If there’s one thing we love in the CRPR office, it’s food, which is why we’re happy as Larry that we’ve been appointed to work with the Colmore Food Festival again.

“This year, the win feels extra special, as our move to Colmore Row has put us right in the thick of it with the festival on our doorstep.”

Michele Wilby, executive director at Colmore Business District, said: “The CBD is so much more than just a business area. Our vibrant food and drink scene continues to grow, and our annual food festival is a fantastic way to give people a taste of what’s on offer all year round, all within five minutes of Victoria Square.

“Since we started working with CRPR, they’ve really got under the skin of the festival and formed strong relationships with the venues taking part. We’re looking forward to another successful year working with the team and to another busy festival.”
