Getting ready for Christmas

Our attention is now turning to Christmas and what we can do to attract more locals and visitors to the city. We are working with contractors on a new Christmas lights display, with lots of new features, and our big switch-on event will be back on Thursday November 18. Our Christmas Market will also be back, which is a big opportunity for businesses to take a stall and expand their reach with discounts for city centre BID businesses. If you are interested in trading at this year's event, apply here. Most importantly, please let us know about any news, information or offers from your business that we can promote via our own channels and through Visit Plymouth.

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

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.
