We’re a very happy Bankside business this week. We’ve just been appointed as Better Bankside’s PR agency! Better Bankside, a Business Improvement District, works to make the Bankside area, including Southwark and Borough, a better place to live, work and visit. We’ve reaped the benefits ourselves, from Street Gym sessions to recycling schemes, and not forgetting the spectacular Shakespeare 400 celebrations in the area.

There are two big projects we’ll be working on this year – launching London’s answer to the New York High Line, and the MERGE annual arts, music and performance festival where artists draw upon the area’s heritage and culture. We’ve been brought in to help increase awareness of the work Better Bankside does for the area, as well as establish Bankside as a destination in its own right.

From the Bard to Dickens, to Borough Market and Tate Modern, it’s an area steeped in history, culture and talent, so we can’t wait to talk about it. We’ll be focusing on outreach to the London, consumer and trade press with all the exciting work Better Bankside is doing.
