Named PR & Marketing Agency of the Year (City of Birmingham Business Awards 2018) & PR Agency of the Year (SME News Awards 2018)

EAST VILLAGE. is an exciting, innovative and award-winning agency that specialises in PR, Marketing and Events for retail, property, and hospitality brands. The business was born from a desire to create lasting relationships through engaging conversations.

We’re a young, passionate and experienced team that likes to bring personality into everything we do, which has been recognised by a number of recent award wins, including ‘PR & Marketing Agency of the Year’ at the City of Birmingham Business Awards 2018 and ‘PR Agency of the Year’ at the 2018 SME News Awards. In addition to winning ‘Outstanding Small Consultancy (Silver)’ at the CIPR Pride Awards 2017, ‘Small Business of the Year’ at the West Midlands Awards 2017, and being selected as one of Small Business Saturday’s #SmallBiz100 companies.

We stick to what we’re good at and focus only on what we know. We’re not in the business of over-selling ourselves and pride ourselves on delivering each and every project, client, brand and campaign in the best possible way.

From behaviour change projects and business marketing strategies, to consumer campaigns and launch events, we work with you to get your messages out to the right audiences through the right channels. It’s as simple as that. Whether you’re a new product launching into the market, an online retail brand, a sporting venue, holiday destination or retail asset, we want people through your doors and onto your websites to experience the best of what’s on offer.

Ultimately, we simply want to deliver exciting marketing campaigns, engaging PR strategies, and show-stopping events.


We live and breathe our industries, and create initiatives that make the difference.
The Capsule Collection x EAST VILLAGE.

Our team has expertise across fashion PR and retail PR; from working in-house at one of the UK’s leading designer brands, to managing world-famous fashion brands. TeamEV has a host of experience across the industry; we’ve launched start-ups, promoted pop-ups by emerging brands, and championed small and independent businesses. In addition to looking after local and national retail assets; managing their marketing strategies and delivering everything on the ground from PR and social media, to large scale events.

This year, we’ve launched The Capsule Collection; a three-tier support service that’s flexible to start-ups, scale-ups and established brands.

The Six PM Sessions

Trying to better yourself, stay healthy, move more, and eat less is always a challenge when you’re working hard (and often late). TeamEV knows this all too well so decided to do something about it, by launching The Six PM Sessions; bringing wellness, fitness and mindfulness closer to our office and fellow workaholics. It’s also a great way for leisure brands to engage with a professional audience, through targeted health and fitness PR and marketing.

Head over to our @sixpmsessions or the EV Facebook page to see what events are coming up next!

Birmingham Sales & Events Forum

EAST VILLAGE. runs on collaboration; it’s our contacts and connections that set us apart from the competition. This ‘little black book’ is particularly useful when it comes to hospitality PR and marketing; being able to bring together complimentary businesses.

Our MD, Tara Tomes, is co-founder of Birmingham Sales & Events Forum; a group that unites sales and events professionals from across the city’s hospitality industry, encouraging them to collaborate and share best practice.
