Agency welcomes client wins as leisure and hospitality re-opens for business

PR agency EAST VILLAGE. is celebrating a raft of new business wins as leisure and hospitality venues get set to re-open across the country.

The agency has been appointed to launch a mini-golf complex, celebrated gastropub, and a new food and drink destination.

The Birmingham-based business has been appointed to launch Treetop Adventure Golf, which is set to open in the Bullring this summer.

The mini-golf experience is the brand’s fourth UK site – following in the footsteps of Cardiff, Leicester and Manchester – and will open in the former Forever 21 location on the southern side of the shopping centre.

EAST VILLAGE. has also been appointed by the new owners of The Cross Guns Inn, located in Bolton.

A celebrated gastropub, the venue will open in June under new management, headed up by Jon Peek, an experienced hospitality operator whose previous roles include multi-site general manager across the Marco Pierre White restaurant group.

These latest openings come as EAST VILLAGE. also prepares to support the team behind Hockley’s Hen & Chickens, which will be opening a bar and restaurant in the Jewellery Quarter. Opening later this year, The Rolling Mill is a 280-cover venue.

EAST VILLAGE. founder and managing director Tara Tomes said: “After a year of missing our favourite places, we’re now starting to see our much-loved cafes, bars, restaurants and leisure destinations re-open their doors once again… and it’s just such a milestone.

“I’m so proud of the way we, as an agency, have supported, promoted and guided both clients and friends in the industry through what has been such a tough time. After the hard work and changing goalposts, I cannot wait to see leisure and hospitality properly re-open, and working with these three incredible venues is the icing on the cake.”
