"Students on the Marketing Management for Events, Hospitality and Tourism MA took part in a live project with Hobsons Brewery as part of the Integrated Marketing Communications module. Following a brief and a tour of the site, students had to write an integrated marketing communications plan for Hobsons and work in teams of three to design new communications materials. The competition led to the creation of the Funkie Food & Ale cookbook, which showcased recipes such as Saucy Postman’s Pudding – a mixture of prunes, toffee sauce and Hobsons Postman’s Knock ruby porter."
