Global The Media & Entertainment Group
Summer 2017 was light on major sporting events so Greene King combined music and beer to attract punters to its pubs. It teamed up with Global brand Radio X to stage a three-month ‘Summer of Sound’ campaign, delivered on-air, online and across 800 pubs.
The campaign also included the release of Amplified, a limited edition ale, created by Greene King and Radio X presenters Chris Moyles and Dominic Byrne. It was sold exclusively by Greene King, with the story of Moyles’ and Byrne’s involvement providing content to promote Amplified across Radio X’s social, digital and broadcast channels. Greene King’s 800 pubs also got involved in promoting Amplified across their individual websites and social accounts. The partnership culminated in ‘Live at Your Local’, a pub-based search for the UK’s best music talent. Following local heats in Greene King pubs, it culminated in a live final at the Indigo 02. Sales of Amplified beat forecasts, and with 20p from each pint going to Global’s charity Make Some Noise, the campaign also raised £100,000 for good causes.

The festive episode focused on loneliness and its impact on the elderly, paying particular attention to why Christmas is such a tough time for older people.
