A communications and live event agency launched by 17-year-old publicist Oliver Hodgson has opened its first office in Whitehaven, Cumbria. 

Launched just over a year ago, Platinum Live now boasts clients including Whitehaven Rugby League, Xtreme Fitness, From The Fields and Bellcare.

It will take residence at the Bus Station in Whitehaven, a former bus station building which has recently been transformed by BEC into a flexible office space. Barclays Eagle Labs is operating the business space within.

Speaking of the move, founder and MD Hodgson (pictured) said: “I’m incredibly proud to have grown Platinum Live from my family home to an established premises in a little over a year, factoring in a global pandemic!

"I’m incredibly grateful for the support I have received from the Cumbrian business community.”
