BID businesses gear up for ‘Watford Weekender’

Shops, bars, restaurants and gyms are just some of the businesses who have joined together to create the Watford Weekender – a weekend of special offers, discounts and activities in Watford town centre over the weekend of 1st and 2nd October.

Visitors to the town centre will receive a Watford Weekender brochure detailing, all businesses taking part and what their offers are. This includes a family fun day hosted by Twisted Monkey, a guided backstage tour around Watford Palace Theatre, free makeovers in Boots, a £450 prize draw at John Lewis, a special Curry Club at The Langley Conferencing Suites, great discounts at Watford’s newest nail bar Gloss Bar and instore workshops at Lush.

There will also be shopping discounts, restaurant offers, face painting, free nightclub entry, live music, cocktail masterclasses, free swimming, free gym and lots more.

Competitions and radio promotions will run in the week leading up to the 1st and 2nd October, featuring prizes donated by town centre businesses, including the chance to win 4 tickets to Jamie Raven Live at the Colosseum plus a pre-show meal, a complimentary stay for two at Jury’s Inn and free meals in popular Watford restaurants.

The Watford Weekender has been created by Watford BID, the company funded by town centre businesses and behind the Watford For You brand. Its aim is to encourage more people to visit the town and showcase what the town has to offer.

Jonathan Field, Chair of Watford BID said, “We are really excited to launch our first ‘Watford Weekender’, which brings local businesses together to collectively promote Watford town centre as a great destination for shopping, dining out, leisure and business. We hope the Weekender will become a regular event in the town centre diary, that will grow and grow"
