Keep it clean
Luton BID is in the process of arranging cleaning of some key hotspot areas in the town centre. We will initially be targeting  the corner of Bute Street and George Street by the entrance ramp up into The Mall, the corner of Cumberland Street and Park Street, the entrance to Telford Way Car Park and the graffiti in Chapel Street.

If there is a part of the town centre you think needs some additional attention and will make Luton a better place to live and work please do let us know by emailing info@lutonbid.org
Luton Live and Lutonia 2016

Luton BID is delighted to announce a new programme of Luton Live street entertainment, coming to our town centre over the coming months.

Featuring live music, dancing, theatre, comedy and more, the street entertainment aims to encourage more visitors into the town centre and create a vibrant and exciting cultural offering.

The first date will be on Saturday, March 12th.
