WBD returned to Wylam Brewery in Exhibition Park, Newcastle (9 May 2019) for its annual Spring Celebration in Wylam's iconic Grand Hall, with over 360 guests in attendance from across the North East.

WBD has a history of working with businesses in the region that stretches back over 200 years. The event served as an opportunity to thank its long standing clients and contacts in the North East for their ongoing support. 

The firm took the opportunity to update on its plans for the year ahead, including its support for St Oswald's Hospice on its upcoming Great North Elmer Parade. As part of its support for the campaign, WBD will organise another charity quiz evening the hospice which provides specialist care for North East adults, young people and children with incurable conditions. 

Kevin Robertson, Partner and Head of WBD's Newcastle office, commented:

"We all thoroughly enjoyed our annual spring celebrations and would like to thank our clients and contacts for joining us. This year we have a number of exciting projects including our ongoing support for St Oswald's and a research project with the North East Chamber of Commerce aimed at increasing the region's connectivity to global markets with improved access to ports and airports.
