AS we plan our Freshers shows at The Box, it’s suddenly hit home that our third anniversary is almost here.
Probably fitting that Troops of Mafeking will headline almost to the day we started all this back in 2008.
Having just completed work on Crewe Live ’08, Volume were providing PR for businesses in Cheshire and festivals including Indieco Sunday Social in Shrewsbury when an opportunity came along that would change our fledging operation.
While we’d already staged a couple of gigs at The Box, this was the start of helping to build a venue from scratch – including the introduction of a regular Friday night that we still run today.
It all kicked off with Sgt Wolfbanger, Sounds Like Lazer Fire and The Almost Super Heroes – Last Man Down didn’t make it on August 9.
Read a piece of the initial press coverage we secured ahead of the launch night HERE.
As we look to take The Box forward and enter a new phase for Volume PR, think it’s an appropriate first post on our new blog.
So cause for celebration with the Troops, one of the survivors of that initial era.
