Staying out for the Summer Campaign with Trent Barton

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.

Cathedral Quarter BID news and updates 5

Derby By The Sea comes to the Market Place

The seaside comes to Derby from Friday 25 July to Sunday 10 August. Visitors will be able to relax on the beach in the Market Place with an ice cream, have a ride on the funfair or enjoy a traditional Punch & Judy show.

Free Lighting Audit for CQ Businesses

Global Energy Efficiency (GEE), a Carbon Trust-affiliated supplier of LED lighting based on the Wardwick, are offering a free lighting audit to businesses within the Cathedral Quarter. 

 

Using the latest software available, GEE are able to advise businesses how much they currently spend on lighting, and identify potential savings which could be achieved from switching to LED. GEE state that savings on energy consumption typically range from 60%-92% whilst further reductions can be made through decreased maintenance and replacement costs, as LED lights could last over 20 years. This is at least 5 times as long as commonplace CFLs and 25 times as long as traditional halogens. 

 

As part of the Government's commitment to achieving Carbon reduction targets, businesses may also be eligible for funding via the Carbon Trust to offset initial replacement and installation costs. For further information, please click here

Cathedral Quarter Bus Stops & Branding

All bus stops within the Cathedral Quarter have now been fitted with the Cathedral Quarter logo. The presence of the CQ logo on bus stops will only serve to strengthen the identity of the Cathedral Quarter as the premier town centre destination.
