thestudio? Never heard of it…

Your one stop shop for all your meetings and event needs, thestudio resides at the heart of the city boasting unique, bright and colourful event spaces suitable for both formal and informal gatherings! Our venues are built on their excellent reputation and our simple mission statement of “Customer First”… Plus the food, we always have to mention the food! (more…)

IMG_4211Before your trusted mobile device springs out and you start googling, what does brand mean to you? For us we imagine it to be what people say about you when you’re not in the room… Best put, it’s all about the way you want to be and are perceived!

Let’s play a game…

As original as they come, you are effectively your own brand. So to get started create a list of 5 buzzwords/adjectives of how you think you are perceived. Then get your peers/friends/family to do the same about you and see how they match up. Remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder, no 2 people think the same so be in for a treat! This can be real eye opener when it comes to your own business. Funnily enough, this was how thestudio came to develop our core values on an all-important away weekend.

I heart Heinz…

So why do we swoon over beloved brands? Compelled by smart marketing, being creatures of habit and coerced by our own product experiences, it’s no wonder that certain brands develop a special place in our hearts. Maybe it was a past childhood memory of the first time you were rewarded with Cadbury’s chocolate or you vividly remember your mother’s Prada bag and always thought you’d have one just like that when you’re older. So maybe this love developed from a young age or good experiences. One thing’s for sure, everyone has a favourite. (more…)

Say farewell to a boring lunch by moseying on down to thestudio to tantalise those taste buds. It’s a great opportunity to connect with other local businesses, broaden horizons but hopefully not waistlines, all at no expense! Our menu tastings are no one hit wonders, so don’t be disheartened if you couldn’t make it, they run quarterly throughout the year! Give us a call or send us a cheeky tweet, whatever your preferred method of contact, you’ll always be welcome @thestudio!

Happy New Year…

As Christmas and all its festivities are now nicely tucked away like Santa on Boxing Day, our attention is drawn to the dawn of 2016. Following in the footsteps of the season just past, the New Year is a genuine gift giver, offering up fresh opportunities, possibilities and ambitions. This year shines bright for the busting second city, having been given a new lease of life with the arrival of Grand Central (our shiny new age shopping centre which sits on New Street train station has more to offer than just a ride home) and a tram line which even attracted the one and only Queen Elizabeth II, it seems like even the weather can’t dampen this city’s spirit.

With all these new developments and plans for growth, good ol’ Brum is not only a reputable place to shop but to (more importantly) dine. Being the multicultural hub of the West Midlands, Birmingham is overflowing with cuisines and with this new found buzz around the city, it’s no wonder there’s a whole host of new restaurants springing up and blossoming… Here’s some you should definitely keep an eye out for and indulge in if you get the chance. So far we’ve been to Stable Pizza!
