Christmas in Canterbury 2020 – Marketing Toolkit

We know you will all be busy preparing to reopen on the 3 December – ready to make the most of the 3 weeks prior to Christmas.

To support you Canterbury BID has been working with Visit Canterbury,  Whitefriars, Canterbury Cathedral, The Beaney and The Marlowe to ensure our city-wide Christmas promotion has the biggest impact possible.

Join the campaign – below you will find campaign hashtags, images, photos and content ideas which we hope will enable you to link in with the campaign through your own communication channels. By using the same hashtag, we will be able to spot your posts and share your messages across our platforms: #CanterburyIsChristmas!
