Christmas Coming Soon!

5th July 2018

In the middle of a July heatwave, Christmas couldn't be further from the minds of most people. However, as all businesses will know it's never too early to start planning for one of the busiest times of year.

Lancaster BID coordinates the Christmas lights for the city centre. We're once again looking to make them even bigger and better with the return of the much loved Christmas trees on the City Museum steps and the renewal of the tree lights on New Street. To help with the cost of this we're delighted to reveal that we are again a finalist in the Blachere Revive and Thrive Christmas Lights Competition.

We will be presenting at the finals on July 18th in an attempt to win £10,000 worth of new lights for the city centre. Whatever happens, all finalists come away with at least £1,000 worth of lights so it is certain to be a rewarding day.

If you would like to add to the festive atmosphere then you can arrange for a Christmas tree to be installed above your shop by local company Community and Seasonal Engineering. They will provide a real Christmas tree including lights, power supply and brackets as well as taking everything away at the end of the festive period. The cost of this is just £50 per tree.

To book your tree get in touch with Gordon Higton on 01539 567521 or 07880 794986. New customers are encouraged to get in touch as soon as possible to allow plenty of time for the wiring and brackets to be installed.

Finally, if you're looking to really promote your business during the festive season, Lancaster BID can offer a number of opportunities through sponsorship of our Winter in the City programme of events. Please contact the BID team on 01524 590650 or email to find out more.
