Check out our window vinyls
Vacant premises across Luton town centre are being brightened up with vinyl cover-ups which have been designed to spruce up unsightly locations whilst also promoting town centre activities
The vinyls, designed and installed by Luton BID, are themed to promote the town cetnre.
If you are a landlord or agent and would like the BID to dress your empty units with window vinyls whilst waiting for new tenants to move in please
get in touch.

Please report all crime
