Director of one of the South’s leading PR Agencies, Darren Northeast PR, shares news and upcoming events in Dorset and beyond.
Wow! Who’d have thought it!? We are into April already which means this is our landmark 5th column. The time has certainly flown by and if you have flicked through the pages of House Magazine and read any of our columns I would like to thank you for joining us.
As always, there is plenty going on in Bournemouth and Poole as well as wider Dorset to get us excited. For all our incredible business women across Dorset, the prestigious Dorset Venus Awards 2016 has now launched. If you are or know any deserving business women and entrepreneurs who should be celebrated for their outstanding work make sure to put them forward!
There’s also some fantastic entertainment coming to Bournemouth and Dorset this month including Footloose, the musical adaptation of the 80’s cult film, along with 80’s pop icon, Rick Astley, to more modern greats such as Newton Faulkner and Noel Gallagher’s Flying Birds at the BIC. Poole Lighthouse also has some fabulous entertainment this month including the legendary Lulu, the soulful Gregory Porter or enjoy an evening of culture with Imperial Concerto.
There’s also the exciting Thundercat racing which is making it’s adrenaline-fuelled return to Bournemouth seafront on the 16th and 17th April. Taking place at the East of Bournemouth Pier, it’s a great spectacle and totally free! See the unique Thundercat boats racing at high speed, with many twists and turns. It can be viewed from the water’s edge or from the pier itself, a great family day out. For those who prefer their excitement on land, Classic Cars on the Prom also takes place on the 17th of April showcasing stunning classic cars from the 1920’s up to 1983. It’s also free to attend!
In the business scene, I’ve had the pleasure to meet with many businesses which are on the up. With so many start-ups blossoming in Bournemouth and Poole, as well as established businesses celebrating success, the local business community feels more vibrant than ever.
As always, thanks for taking the time to cast your eyes over this month’s edition of ‘PR Man About Town’ and I hope you’ll look out for our May column.
