Canterbury Bid


Canterbury BID Networking takes place once a month in a variety of different venues. This gives local businesses an opportunity to showcase their establishment and activities to other local business members. Each month sees between 40-60 members of the business community joining us for the event. It is an informal, relaxed and sociable atmosphere and a great opportunity to get to know fellow professionals in Canterbury.

Spaces are limited to 2 per business, unless availability allows.

To book your place please email Emily Wells.

Upcoming Networking Events:

Wednesday 5 October 2022
Meet outside Alberry’s Wine Bar

In the run up to Halloween we thought it would be fun to go for a Ghost Walk with the famous resident Ghost Walk Guide John Hippisley. We will finish off in one of the most haunted pubs in Canterbury for a post walk drink.

Wednesday 2 November 2022
The Ambrette, Beer Cart Lane

Delighted to be visiting The Ambrette for the first time since lockdown! Join us for a delicious meal at this fabulous family run businesses.

Wednesday 7 December 2022

We can’t think of a better way to toast in Christmas than a visit to Canterbury’s newest roof top bar. We can enjoy the twinkling Christmas lights and quite possibly the best view of the Cathedral the city has to offer!

These events are being co-hosted with local solicitors Girlings.

Through Spring to Autumn 2021, BID was hosting monthly networking sessions via Zoom. Each session welcomed over 50 local business representatives, and showcased local products including a chocolate tasting with Madame Oiseau, beer tasting with Shepherd Neame and gin tasting with The Foundry – cheers to that!

We have been lucky to host networking events at many wonderful local businesses. Not only does it give us a chance to learn more about the history of the business, but is also an opportunity for them to showcase their space and activities – here are a few highlights from previous events:
