Choc-tastic Success For Lancaster BID Easter Event

8th May 2019

On Friday 12th April, Lancaster BID turned Lancaster into a chocolate themed day of fun for all. The event featured performances from Charlie, Willy Wonka and friends as well as chocolate workshops & crafts, chocolate stalls and more. The event was well attended by people from across the Lancaster District and beyond, including Preston, Blackpool and Blackburn. Footfall for the event saw a 13% increase and was 4.8% busier than the 2018 Easter event.
 
As part of the event, Lancaster BID also ran a golden ticket campaign to encourage people to shop locally in Lancaster, and in return customers were rewarded with a golden ticket, for a chance to win £250 in vouchers to spend in Lancaster stores. Over 70 businesses took part in the campaign and 4,000 tickets were completed and returned with lucky winner Christine from Lancaster, having THE winning golden ticket.
