Pride in London appoint Tim Noblett as marketing lead
Pride in London, the LGBT+ festival, has appointed Tim Noblett as Director of Marketing. He takes over the pro bono position from Asad Shaykh, who will now be Group Strategy Director. He will work with Pride In London alongside his TMW UNLIMITED duties.
Noblett, who is also Head of Data & Insight for the integrated creative agency TMW Unlimited (part of UNLIMITED) will be responsible for managing the marketing activity for Pride in London. This includes campaigns to support Pride’s Got Talent and the Unity Awards, as well as delivering the main campaign for the event itself. Noblett will be working with media partners including Gaydio and The Independent to develop and deliver campaigns.
Last year’s Pride in London Parade, the 50 year anniversary of the original march, was labelled “the biggest and most inclusive event in history” after over 1.5 million people attended. It was accompanied by the successful #AllOurPride campaign, crafted by an entirely LGBT+ creative team, which highlighted the links between the last five decades of activism with the contemporary achievements and struggles of the LGBT+ community.
