Birmingham Press Club Debate: Why Birmingham should win new Channel 4 HQ

Will Birmingham’s creative talent pool, thriving business community and unrivalled accessibility be enough of an incentive to attract Channel 4 to the city?

That’s the question a panel of experts will be discussing at a city centre debate - just days before the broadcaster is expected to reveal whether Birmingham. Manchester or Leeds will be the focus of its relocation plans.

Llewela Bailey, chairman of Birmingham Press Club, which is co-hosting the event in conjunction with event management company 7LOCO, said: “Plans by Channel 4 to create a new national headquarters and creative hub outside of London present genuine opportunities for Birmingham to convince those who are about to make the relocation decision that our city must be the number one choice.
