The monster has been launched! Over the past two nights we've celebrated the launch of our website, with magic, bubbly and plenty of familiar faces.
Staff from top venues and companies across the Black Country, Staffordshire and Shropshire came along to celebrate with us. Guests included former Ned's Atomic Dustbin Star turned Wolverhampton Civic Media Officer Jonn Penney, Signal 107 Fm DJ Richard 'Dickie' Dodd and BBC Midlands Today newsreader and panto star Joanne Malin.
Staff from Wolverhampton Grand, Free Radio, Cineworld Wolverhampton, Wolverhampton Civic, WVOne, Wyatt International and the Lighthouse were among those who came along to celebrate our launch at the Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton.
Entertainment came from the fantastic John Meredith who wowed crowds with his amazing magic tricks. (Keep it monster for an exclusive magical video very soon!)
Staff from some amazing venues across Shropshire celebrated with us at Henry Tudor House in Shrewsbury, guests included the teams from Ironbridge Gorge Museums, Theatre Severn, Wyatt International, Telford and Wrekin Council, Lord Hill Hotel... and many more!
Lucy Dalton from Native Monster said "We'd like to thank everyone who came to make our launch night so special. It has been a truly fantastic five months. We've had a great response from people across the West Midlands, Shropshire and Staffordshire and we're really looking forward to an even better 2014!"
Congratulations to Kate Evans, Press from Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, Marianne Carter from WVOne and Holly Francis from Wolves Civic, Shirley Davies from Yarrington, Tim King from Shropshire Tourism and Lesley Passcall from Mary Kay Cosmetics who all walked away with a bottle of bubbles in our champagne giveaways...
