Welcome Back

With the huge success of Sail GP now behind us, our attention is turning to other events to attract residents and visitors into Plymouth City Centre. 

We are concentrating our marketing efforts on Plymouth residents and the thousands of extra holidaymakers expected to be staying in Devon and Cornwall this summer, including an updated and concise visitor guide. And with COVID restrictions easing, we are staging or supporting a host of FREE family events in the city centre which we want all our businesses to benefit from with increased trade. So, please make sure you take advantage of all the opportunities coming your way and let us know about anything you are doing – news, special offers or information. 

The Hatchling on August 14 and 15, coming the city centre and The Hoe - a spectacular theatrical performance involving a giant flying dragon operated by more than 100 puppeteers.

West End Carnival on August 28, a huge celebration for traders, visitors, and residents. We have a packed line-up of entertainment and activities across the West End and inside Plymouth Market from 11 am. Barbican Theatre's Petrol Headz will also be making an appearance. 

Please make sure you let us know of any news, information or offers that you would like us to include in our marketing activity by emailing Holly.Reynolds@citycentrebid.co.uk

Good luck and here’s to a great summer.

Shaping the Future of Our City Centre

Businesses have voted overwhelmingly for the Plymouth City Centre Business Improvement District (BID) to carry on its work for another five years. The City Centre BID was one of the first BIDs in the UK when it was set up in 2005 and has now been voted back in for a fourth term. The Yes vote was secured with a higher than average turnout for a BID election of 54 per cent - 13 per cent higher than in the previous ballot in March 2015.
