Judges praise Luton town centre's nightlife
Luton town centre is flying a Purple Flag for the second year – winning this sought-after accreditation for an ‘entertaining’, ‘diverse’, ‘safe’ and ‘enjoyable’ nightlife.
Judges from the Association of Town and City Management (ATCM) first awarded purple flag status to the town centre last year and have this month renewed it – with Luton one of over 70 town and city centres in the UK and Ireland with the award, which is comparable to the ‘Green Flag’ for parks and ‘Blue Flag’ for beaches.
ATCM judges praised the town centre for its strong partnership working and continued: “A great first year for this town centre and it is a real positive to hear that a ‘Night Mayor’ for Luton has been appointed - a fantastic conduit for growth to the area.”
Luton Business Improvement District (BID) funded the Purple Flag application and worked as part of the application partnership, which was led by Luton Borough Council.
