Successful Luton Live event and footfall numbers are up again...
First Luton Live of 2017

The BID's exciting programme of Spring/Summer Luton Live events kicked off this Saturday.
The talented acts who performed in St George's Square included a steel pan band, a preview of Luton Carnival theatre and dance performances and  a juggling painter and decorator who ran interactive circus skills workshops.

Luton Live events are entirely funded by the BID and will run throughout the spring summer. The next one is on Saturday 10th June.
