Impactful PR campaigns, engaging social media strategies, exciting influencer partnerships, and show-stopping events for retail, leisure and hospitality brands
EAST VILLAGE., East Village PR

EAST VILLAGE. is a team of storytellers. We thrive on shaping the narratives of people, products and places.

Specialising in PR, marketing and events, we spend every day putting pen to paper for retail, leisure and hospitality brands; with a special focus on small business marketing support. We also deliver community and Third Sector projects across the Midlands, and beyond.

Just like the brands we represent, we know that “off the shelf” simply doesn’t cut it, so we craft and create ideas tailored to our clients’ every need, regardless of size or budget. Being a boutique agency that thinks big, we always do it for the story.

Tara Tomes

EAST VILLAGE. was set up by Tara Tomes in 2013, having worked both agency and client-side for local independent retailers, internationally renowned fashion brands, acclaimed event venues, large scale exhibitions, and everything in between. With over a decade of experience, Tara’s ambition was to create a business centred around a strong team culture and living by what has now become our everyday ethos: delivering PR with personality.

From flexible working and ongoing training programmes, to #iGotThis reviews and a ‘Grow Your Own’ initiative focused on developing and promoting young talent, people are always the prologue at EAST VILLAGE. We’ve got a strong team spirit as a collective of comms professionals who just love what we do and we wear our heart proudly on our sleeve with our TeamEV Charter, which outlines our dedication to being the best we can be.

We have always been passionate about supporting small businesses… after all, we’re one ourselves! It comes from a genuine love of what we do, and we don’t just mean securing brilliant coverage or putting on a talked-about event… our role is so much more – it’s about helping people and their businesses succeed.

We launched Pocket Sized PR as a way for small brands to make the big leap into working with a professional agency. There’s free PR, marketing and social media templates, as well as a host of top tips and how-to guides. We’ve also got three jargon-free PR and Social Media packages available too, tailored to small business budgets.
