Hot in the Kitchen #3 – Trendspotting with William Murray

Choose life. Choose haggis

This week, the media spotlight’s been well and truly on Scotland. Here at William Murray HQ, we hate to miss out on the action.

Lights, camera: Springderella

If Red Nose Day has taught us anything, it’s that dressing up and making a fool of ourselves for a worthy cause is always a good idea.

At last night’s prestigious B2B Awards in London, we picked up not one, not two, but three awards. Not a bad haul considering we only entered two… B2B PR Agency of the Year With 95% […]

Christmas sandwiches 2016: a review

It’s that time of year again. While the Christmas music blaring through the aisles might have come too soon for some, there’s one tradition we’re happy to see arrive promptly… Christmas sandwiches.

Eat up, it’s World Vegan Month

For some of us, a meal without meat is not a meal at all. But take it from me – William Murray’s token carnivore turned 98% of the time vegan* – it doesn’t have to be so. In light of it being World Vegan Month here’s a rundown of some of London’s vegan friendly hotspots. […]
