Blighty signs tourist board marketing partnerships

Blighty, the recently rebranded UKTV channel celebrating all things British, has signed marketing partnerships with VisitEngland and Northern Ireland Tourist Broad.

In a different deal, Blighty has also teamed up with Antler, the luxury travel luggage company, for a campaign themed on “April Showers”, offering Blighty-branded umbrellas.

The promotion runs across 57 House of Fraser department stores and a selection of independent retail outlets nationwide.
