The BID funded a series of radio ads with Heart FM for The Galleries’ Skate and Shop event, which returned by popular demand for February half term. A 126 square metre roller skating rink was installed on the ground floor of The Galleries from 6th to 14th February, with the aim of injecting some retro fun into Bristol’s shopping experience. With free skating, as well as free skate hire and safety equipment, the event proved popular with families in Bristol looking for fun activities to keep the kids entertained during the school holidays. Shoppers were able to take part in a free 30 minute skating session each day, with the rink open from 10am to 5pm.
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
