Platinum Christmas 2016 – the BPA Celebrates its 70th Anniversary

Creative Alliance is delighted to be attending the Birmingham Publicity Association’s Platinum Christmas lunch, held this Friday on the 2nd December 2016.  The event marks the 70th year since the BPA became officially recognised in 1946, and will celebrate the decades it has spent drawing the Midlands’ creative industries closer together since being founded in 1930.  Held in the stylish 1874 Suite at Villa Park, the party will feature fantastic live entertainment and catering for its many guests – not to mention free access to the legendary BPA after-party at Apres on Summer Row!

The event will be kindly sponsored by Elonex, who Creative Alliance are proud to have provided with apprentices.  Abigail Smith trained with Creative Alliance during her apprenticeship with Elonex and is now a full-time employee:
