North West

Post  Beating Heart on Sat Jun 20, 2009 8:59 pm

Is anyone coming down from the North West, I live in St Helens but originally from Liverpool and would be interested to know if there is anyone from my area so that we can all get media publicity as a collective to get the event noticed.

I was going to get in touch with the Liverpool Echo, The Wirral Star, The St Helens Star and Warrington Guardian (the latter 2 being of the same group) and getting them to run a news item about the event. It would obviously be more newsworthy if there is a number of representatives from the area. It's also a good to meet fellow drummers from around your own area on the day.

This is getting quite good now guys, I make it 8 of us if we could get it off the ground we could arrange to meet somewhere for a photo and names etc and get the story to all the local press and maybe setting up a collective justgiving website with links to our individual site in case anyone recognises us. More importantly it would be a chance to promote the event and get noticed in the process as I think the day is quite a news story. How does everyone feel about meeting one night next week and how far is everyone prepared to travel. I live in St Helens but originally from Liverpool I don't mind where but I can promise that I will get a story and a photo into the press.

Thats awesome Gilli!

I have just realised that the partner of the guitarist in my band writes for the Crosby Herald. I have got in touch to see if they will do a piece on us all taking part. Will let you know on progress so I can get details of as many people in the area to include.

Probably makes sense to do it somewhere like St Helens or Leigh as they're in between Manchester and Liverpool.

There seems to be some useful contacts amongst us I think if we can all get together next week we could get it mentioned in so many papers given the areas we all come from. I was alerted to this event through a piece on Granada Reports, if we can get us all together and get it off to them as well, who knows where it could lead, especially for the guys who are in a band, a bit of publicity for you would go down well. What day/night would be best for all, and a good suggestion from Chopper to try and get near the middle for Liverpool and Manchester. Depending on where about Martin lives on the Wirral too as you may be able to come across the Runcorn Bridge.

I can pretty much make any night although if it wasn't a Tues or Thurs that would be even better! Is Warrington about half way between Liverpool and Manchester?

Nice idea, any other Mancs going? We can use the John Thompson angle for extra publicity too, he lives round the corner from me! Everyone loves a celeb mingling with the masses!

Also, is there any liftsharing happening from the Northwest? Obv its difficult with everyone taking their kit, but thought I'd put it out there.....
