The Holywell Building in Loughborough is part of the LUSEP campus

1284 is a PR agency in Loughborough

We work across Leicestershire and the East Midlands

When looking for a location in Leicestershire from which to start 1284, our founder was inspired by the startup and spinout community operating in Loughborough University’s science and enterprise zone. George Oliver had completed his Master’s at the university’s School of Business and Economics. 1284 joined the Loughborough Enterprise Network in 2020. We remain headquartered in the Holywell Building - alongside the county’s world-leading innovators and some of its most exciting companies.


Our Loughborough clients

We don’t publish case studies promoting the projects we do with people. Discretion is important to us. We can arrange private testimonials should you require them.

We use our media leadership experience to help with profile, message and networks.


We use our corporate experience to help founder-led companies position their message.


We use our experience of reaching large audiences to advise public organisations.


Several of 1284’s Loughborough PR clients are based in the town and the wider Charnwood district. While serving as editor of the Leicester Mercury newspaper from 2016 to 2020, George had management oversight of media outlets including the weekly Loughborough Echo and Hinckley Times newspapers.


East Midlands

1284 works across Leicestershire and the wider East Midlands. We have a number of clients in Leicester, for example. Our associates are media professionals who specialise in corporate communications support and training. As former editors of news outlets, they also have a wide network of contacts in target audiences across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
