The first of our BID funded events will take place on Saturday, 15th June - with a stunning street circus filling St George's Square and Chilli Fest running along George Street.

August will see Celebrate Luton Street Fest come to St George's Square, a two day festival packed with entertainment, art, performance and so much more

Enjoy this burst of colour

Have you spotted all our floral displays? Our BID-funded hanging baskets, flower displays and window boxes are now dotted around Luton town centre.

This is the fifth year Luton BID has provided an extra burst of colour and this year we have 16 three tier planters, 51 hanging baskets and 15 barrier baskets - located along George Street, Market Hill, Bute Street, Church Street, Mill Street and outside the train station.
