Canterbury Bid


Campaign dates: 19 February – 31 March 2024

We firmly believe Canterbury is top spot in Kent for a night out. No other town or city offers such an incredible array of places to enjoy yourself, all located in close proximity – and set in the only Purple Flag-awarded place in Kent.  We are therefore really excited to be launching our brand new marketing campaign to promote it. Canterbury BID will be overseing the following activities:

  • Creation of a new digital guide for planning a night out in Canterbury hosted on Visit Canterbury
  • 6 week social media campaign on MyCanterbury Facebook and Instagram
  • 6 week competition run through Visit Canterbury
  • 6 weeks of deals and discounts to encourage people to explore Canterbury’s night life.
  • Printed coasters and posters to promote the digital night out guide

How to get involved:

  1. Email us to confirm which of the six themes listed below your business fits best into, and why.
  1. Would you be happy to have coasters and posters on display in your venue? If yes, how many?
