Fire-eaters and acrobats put on an incredible show for 150 guests as the BPA celebrated put on a party like no other with its first charity Carnival event.
Sponsored by Broadway Casino at Mama Roux in Digbeth, BPA’s (Birmingham Publicity Association) event raised £2,000 for local charity, LoveBrum, that supports hidden gem projects in the city that are often volunteer lead and deliver a real change.
Dedicated to bringing the creative industries in the Midlands closer together, the BPA offers members access to a valuable network, educational workshops and insight from leaders within the field, as well as hosting several events every year to boost awareness and funds for its charities, and to provide additional networking opportunities. Chair of BPA, Caroline Chell, said:
For more than 70 years, the BPA has been bringing those working within the creative industries together and supporting great causes, while knowing how to throw a show-stopping event, and this year was no different.
This year’s event featured superb street food served up from some of Birmingham’s most popular vendors, alongside top class entertainment from Circus Mash. The BPA, who have been raising money for LoveBrum throughout the year, will present the charity with all the funds raised at its Christmas party in December. Speaking of LoveBrum, Caroline added:
We’re delighted with the support the organisation is getting and the contribution we’re making, both within the industry and on a local level, and we hope that by the end of the year, we’ll have even more members to help share the benefits.
