We’re delighted to report that our client Duncan Edwards Tribute has received extensive national – and international – broadcast, print and online coverage.

The 60th anniversary exhibition, which runs at Dudley Archives and Local History Centre until March 30, and associated events including the tribute evening have been featured by BBC Midlands Today, ITV Central News, ITV Granada, BBC website, BBC Radio WM, Black Country Radio, The Times, Express and Star, Dudley Chronicle, Dudley News, Stourbridge News and the Manchester United FC matchday programme.

A production team from MUTV visited the exhibition to produce a feature which can be viewed on the Duncan Edwards Tribute website and tribute organiser Jim Cadman was interviewed on Spanish radio station El Enganche. Listen to the interview here.

In the run up to the anniversary of the Munich air crash, the BBC in the West Midlands produced this video.

CGM is providing PR and social media management for the tribute programme and photographic partner Jonathan Hipkiss took photos at the 60th anniversary tribute evening, in which former Manchester United manager Tommy Docherty, ex-United goalkeeper Alex Stepney and West Bromwich Albion’s 1968 FA Cup winning skipper Graham Williams shared their memories of Duncan.
