Press club party

Press club turns comedy club before awarding lifetime honour to top duo

Birmingham Hippodrome panto star Matt Slack and comedians Andy Robinson and Jay Handley provided the laughter at a lunch organised by Birmingham Press Club. More than 100 guests attended the event at the Loft Lounge, Birmingham. Broadcaster and sports journalist Tom Ross and Press Club vice-chairman Fred Bromwich were installed as honorary life members, each receiving the traditional gift of an engraved bugle from club chairman Llewela Bailey and president Bob Warman. A raffle raised funds for the Journalists’ Charity.
