Creating a great impression

No matter what your taste or interests, Croydon’s got a great deal to offer.

Home to hundreds of well-known businesses, top quality high street stores, smaller independents and a host of bars, restaurants and cafés, Croydon is a bustling retail and commercial centre through which the winds of change are blowing. 

With £5.2 billion worth of public and private investment earmarked for re-development of the town centre over the next five years,  the importance of creating a great impression and shaking off negative perceptions of the town has never been higher. 

Working with our partners in the local community, Croydon BID delivers a series of projects and initiatives that are aimed at making everyone's experience and impression of the town centre a better one. Principal activities include: 

  • Events: We deliver a lively annual programme of vibrant events to increase visitor numbers, provide increased trading opportunities and help leave everyone with a positive lasting impression
  • Christmas Lights: We illuminate North End and surrounding streets throughout the festive period with our dazzling, annual Christmas lights displays
  • Place Marketing: We produce marketing, PR and promotional campaigns to highlight everything that Croydon has to offer and underline the impressive changes taking place in the town
  • Our fantastic, easy-to-navigate, interactive on-line guide features all the latest news and information on what's on, where to go, special offers and getting around the bustling heart of Croydon 
  • Check Out Croydon Loyalty Card: Our highly popular loyalty card gives people even more reason to visit Croydon, by rewarding loyal customers with exclusive offers and promotions  
  • North End Activities: Working closely with our partners, we ensure activities are controlled and managed 

There is always plenty going on and we’d love to hear from you if you’re planning an event or you’ve got some exciting news you would like to share. Contact us today.
