Communications plays a vital role in the BID’s work, creating a network between businesses, promoting the initiatives being undertaken by the BID, and elevating the area as a destination for leisure and business.
Over the coming year, we will be raising awareness of the world class activity in the area, through the pocket guide, e-newsletter, website and social media. We will also be taking part in London-wide events, such as Pride and the London Festival of Architecture. Join us on Trafalgar Square for West End LIVE in June, showcasing highlights from London’s top theatre shows… and most people’s favourite season, Christmas, will be back in all it’s glory, with lights along the Strand. Keep an eye out for more activity later in the year.
The #NorthbankTogether campaign will bring the area together in celebrating the range of major events and smaller activities this summer, all ready to be discovered. Northbank businesses can get involved and find out more, simply by contacting the BID office, or downloading the campaign brief here.Summer events
Take a walk around the Northbank – did you know this increases productivity levels as well as helping you to get physically fit? It’s also well known that you can often get to other central London locations in a similar or even quicker time by walking rather than taking public transport… By taking a side street you’ll uncover exciting new things and reduce your exposure to air pollution, so take out one of our maps and have a look around!
Next one due out June 2019.
