Come to the Times’ new pop-up newsroom

Rob Young

Fancy a cuppa and a chat?

Why not come and meet the Times team at our new ‘pop-up’ newsroom at the Ismail coffee and tea house each Wednesday until the end of September?

Starting this week, a journalist and a member of the commercial team will be available for a chat and a coffee from 9am to 5pm at the popular Mount Pleasant Road cafe.

Whether you’ve a story for us, an event to publicise or an advert to place, just pop along and we’ll be delighted to meet you.

The business’s owner Raschid Gibrail said: “Historically, coffee shops have been talking and networking centres for community and business.

“It is refreshing that the Times is looking to re-establish, humanise and develop an opportunity for the general public to have a face-to-face relationship with the local newspaper.

“We are delighted to have been invited to host Times’ pop-up newsroom.”

The idea was the brainchild of Mr Raschid and Times commercial director Nick Moore.

Mr Moore said: “Ismail is a fantastic coffee shop and a place where friends go to meet, so what better place to launch a pop-up newsroom than here?

“Everyone is welcome, even if it is just to pop in to say hello.”

Ismail Coffee & Tea is at 95-97 Mount Pleasant Road, Tunbridge Wells. The Times team will be there from 9am until 5pm.
