  • Cathedral Quarter Visitors Enjoy Special Offers And Free Ride Home Derby’s Cathedral Quarter and regional bus company Trent Barton have teamed up to promote the area as the perfect destination to enjoy an evening out. A wide range of Cathedral Quarter businesses are offering special promotions on Thursday evenings and Trent Barton are providing free bus travel on routes out of the city between 7.30pm and 8.30pm on Thursdays throughout August. Martin Langsdale, chair of the Cathedral Quarter Management Group, which drives forward activities under the area’s Business Improvement District status, explained: “The Cathedral Quarter is the heart of the early evening economy and was a key partner in the city’s success in gaining Purple Flag status as a safe and diverse area. “We have worked with Trent Barton on a number of initiatives in the past, including the popular CQ Mango loyalty card, and were keen to work with them to promote the area as a destination to enjoy during the height of the summer. “There are some great special offers at a number of popular food and drink establishments as well as at a range of hair and beauty salons in the area who stay open later on Thursdays. “We hope that this combination of special offers and a free ride home on a Trent Barton bus will encourage more people into the Cathedral Quarter and tempt the thousands of people who work in this area and beyond to leave the car at home that day, meet up with colleagues, family and friends at the end of the day and then catch the bus home. Alex Hornby, Marketing and Communications Director at Trent Barton, added: “The Cathedral Quarter is a great place to meet up after work or to come in for the day and enjoy a meal or a spot of pampering after a day visiting the host of shops and cultural attractions. “Our bus routes connect the city centre with the whole of Derby, Derbyshire and beyond and we hope that the offer of free bus travel mid evening will not only encourage people to stay longer in the area but also to leave the car at home and use public transport.” Bars and restaurants in the Cathedral Quarter offering a range of offers include Lola-Lo, Lorentes Tapas, Fat Cat, Ask Italian, Pitcher & Piano, Wonky Table, Slug & Lettuce, Standing Order, Metro bar and The Wardwick.  And hair and beauty salons offering early evening offers are Blend, S1 hair, Headquarters, Strand Hair and Beauty and Glamour’us Beauty.

  • One of Derby’s leading designer retailers, Cruise Fashion, is celebrating after welcoming new Store Manager, Alison Fisher.                               Allison brings with her a wealth of experience in the retail industry and some exciting plans to further develop the menswear store. The Cruise store stocks both mainline and premium brands for men including Boss Black, Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood, Stone Island and Dolce and Gabbana to name but a few. With big plans for the store in the future, Alison is determined to further the great reputation by increasing footfall to the store and by working closely with the local community and businesses through mutually beneficial relationships. Alison comments on her new role: “I was delighted to be appointed as Store Manger at Cruise; there is so much potential and from the first time I visited I knew I could make a difference with all of the retail experience I have. The store already has a strong, loyal customer base which we are proud to have retained, and we want to build upon this so we are Derby’s number one destination menswear store. “We stock brands such as Belstaff, Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith, who are all originally from the local area so we have a great heritage. And even though I am not from the area these are still my favourite designers as there is always a quirky point of difference in the fabrics and the cut of the pieces. I also admire the Italian brands such as CP Company, Stone Island and Paul and Shark, for their design, quality, fabric composition and strong brand identity.” Jane Slattery, Area Manager at Cruise added:“The Directors and myself are delighted to welcome Alison on board, joining an already strong team of Managers throughout the Cruise portfolio. Her experience and retail knowledge is unparalleled and she was the clear choice when recruiting for the role. With Alison’s high, ambitious attitude I am excited to see what Alison can deliver and look forward to watching the store go from strength to strength,” Cruise is located on Sadler Gate,Derby.
