“Hattie, Tara and the EV. team really pulled out all the stops for the opening of our first Birmingham bar. They found the perfect balance between strategic account management and hands-on ‘doing’, and no task was too small for them to roll their sleeves up when our small team felt stretched. We were able to rely upon their considerable expertise and experience to create a memorable and successful opening that felt distinctly Vagabond and distinctly Birmingham.”
EAST VILLAGE. is an award-winning Birmingham PR agency specialising in brands across the creative and tech, health and wellbeing, and leisure and hospitality sectors.
We believe that PR should never be a vanity project, it should always have purpose. That’s why we only work with businesses who share our passion for making a difference – brands that make people want to feel good!
Through media relations, stakeholder engagement, employer brand building, and reputation management, we challenge clickbait and comparison culture, and help our clients to build and engage communities who share their values.
There once was a time when industries were built on first impressions and superficial gains, and PR followed suit.
Times have changed…
Our PR strategies go beyond just looking good – they’re about you, your team, your customers, and your wider communities feeling good about what you do too.
That’s why we help brands grow and protect strong reputations that outshine the competition; position their founders as credible thought-leaders with something game-changing to say; and attract and retain the best talent by putting people at the centre of everything.
We believe that the value of a business lies in its values as a business.
That’s why we lead by example…
EAST VILLAGE. is centred around team culture: challenging typical agency standards to offer more flexible job roles, ensuring true representation at every level, and providing perks that actually make a difference.
Putting progression and development at the centre, we support our team to feel good and offer perks that are with them in every moment that matters.
We’re proud to be building an agency for a modern workforce.

For the launch of our new brand proposition, Rouge, following a full site refurb at the Bullring we went looking for a hyper-local PR agency that could bring fresh eyes to our fresh take on Café Rouge. We found the perfect partner in EAST VILLAGE. – from the first pitch, when they made us feel like old friends, to co-hosting our launch event with local influencers and the well connected that we needed to help spread the word. They were a pleasure to work with and drove some great results.
“It’s been a pleasure to collaborate with Hattie, Holly, and the rest of the EAST VILLAGE. team on the opening of Treetop Adventure Golf Birmingham. We received excellent care, from pre- to post-launch, and leaned on their fantastic local expertise to ensure maximum impact. We look forward to continuing working with the team in the future.”

“What an utter joy to work with a company and its team in achieving our best outcome. Upon EV’s commitment to delivering PR for the Birmingham AIDS and HIV Memorial I can confirm they exceeded expectations. At the offset they listened, understood our vision and worked tirelessly to meet objectives and goals. At all times, the team were warm, friendly, capable, full of ideas and communicated efficiently. This in turn made us feel confident, in control and also stress free knowing they had our best interests at heart. Overall, the energy and efforts received from TeamEV ensured we reached our desired outcome. An extra shout-out goes to Hattie and George who excelled in their field. I would not hesitate in engaging Tara and her company EAST VILLAGE., moving forward, or recommending their services and team.”

“The coverage and outreach that EAST VILLAGE. has achieved in their first year representing us has been outstanding. Our account manager Hattie and her team have a thorough understanding of our core values and objectives which they use to create thoughtful and interesting content. Our audience numbers have increased hugely since working with EAST VILLAGE. with consistent press coverage and hundreds of thousands of social media impressions. During a year when access to mental health services has been especially crucial, EAST VILLAGE. have stepped up to ensure our message has been communicated broadly and clearly.”

We engaged the services of trusted EV. to deliver a successful launch campaign for our client Jukeboxers and they certainly delivered. From our initial consultation with Tara, who was brimming with ideas; to the execution and management by Hattie, Holly and our account manager Jodie: the whole process was seamless from start to finish. Friendly, accommodating and, as always, a pleasure to work with!
