Lighting up Luton - this weekend
Crowds at last year's switch-on event where the BID funded 
appearances from PAW Patrol 
We are counting down to Luton's Christmas lights switch-on on Saturday 25th November.

After the success of the BID's PAW Patrol 'meet & greet' last year, we have arranged for  Mike the Knight & Evie to make personal appearances at intervals from 2.30pm - Mike the Knight will be at the official switch-on at 6pm too. 

Our funding, which is all part of the BID's wider Christmas programme, will help  improve the Luton Borough Council event as well as bringing  more people into the town centre.

Take advantage of the extra footfall
Thousands of extra people flocked to the town centre for the switch-on last year so you might like to plan some special offers this weekend to make the most of the extra footfall. Contact us HERE for some ideas.

Further details on this and other BID Christmas activities can be found HERE.
