Steve Hughes, chief executive of the Plymouth City Centre Company, said:“ We are fully aware some of our businesses have had a challenging few months so it is hugely important for us to do whatever we can to attract more visitors and customers.

“With Armada Way now cleared and opened up again, we hope visitors and shoppers will return in numbers to support our businesses. This great programme of free events should help.”
