At last month’s Nicer Tuesdays supported by Park Communications we were celebrating all things print and were delighted to be joined by Bruno Bayley of Vice who talked us through the title’s history and examined why the publication remains a core part of an expanding media empire. You can watch his talk above to get some real insights into the way this much talked-about but often misunderstood publication operates.
We are also delighted to announce tickets for March’s Nicer Tuesdays, which takes place at our new venue at the Protein Space in east London. When we realised the next event fell just a week before April Fools’ Day, we thought what better way to inspire you all than by inviting some of the best creative pranksters in the land to reveal their weird and wonderful hoaxes!
Also joining us is B.T. Wilderbourne who inserted absurd humour into the driest of all correspondence – the insurance company letter, and Rebecca Broomfield of Bray Leino Communications will spill the beans on inventing Virgin Altantic’s first glass bottom plane.
As ever the beers will be on us, so come and joint us for a tip-top night of prank themed inspiration!
