Pulitzer Prize winning writer, Edwin Way Teale, once famously said, ‘the world’s favourite season is the spring, all things seem possible in May’, and that was certainly true in the Rewired office last month.
May 2012 has been a busy old month but definitely one filled with really exciting and unusual projects, therefore I thought it might be nice to give you a brief overview of some of the things we’ve been up to.
Counting down to the AEGON Classic tournament
With everyone out and about enjoying the beautiful May sunshine, Rewired organised a special strawberries and ice-cream giveaway in the city centre to help promote Ladies Day at the AEGON Classic tennis tournament at Edgbaston Priory Club (11th – 17th June).
Dressed in tennis whites and armed with racquets, balls and flyers, the Rewired team took to the streets in Chamberlain Square and quickly drew quite a crowd. Unsurprisingly the strawberries and ice-cream went down a treat and the event proved successful in securing ticket sales for the tournament.
Now for a slightly shameless plug – for more information about Ladies Day or how to book tickets for AEGON please visit http://www.lta.org.uk/fans-major-events/lta-summer-grass-court-events/aegon-classic/
Unveiling the Rhinestone Rhino in Southside!
Watching a £15,000 life-sized rhinoceros art sculpture being hoisted to the roof of a building in Southside’s Gay Village certainly isn’t your average day in the office but that’s exactly what the Rewired team were doing in May.
The rhino project is a collaboration between Birmingham City Council, Birmingham LGBT, GB Training and Southside Business Improvement District and hopes to help propel Birmingham’s Gay Village to national ‘gay destination’ status. Rewired organised the unveiling of the rhino, which is adorned with mirrorwork and replica gemstones, and secured a large amount of press attention for the event including broadcast coverage on BBC Midlands Today, ITV Central News, Free Radio and BBC WM.
Fancy a spot of tennis at The Mailbox?
The end of May also saw the Rewired team support The Mailbox with the launch of its new open-air tennis court. Open from 2nd June to the 8th July, anyone wishing to practice their tennis skills will be able to book a timeslot on the free court located on the ground floor of The Mailbox.
In keeping with the summer’s sporting theme Rewired will also be helping support The Mailbox when the court is replaced by table tennis tables.
If you’re interested in booking some time on the court then call The Mailbox’s management offices on 0121 632 1000.
Right, well that’s May finished and with an equally exciting June ahead I’m sure you’ll be seeing the Rewired team out and about so make sure you come and say hello!
