Cathedral Quarter Social Media Initiative - Market Hall

Three weeks ago the Cathedral Quarter BID launched a new social media initiative promoting different areas of the Cathedral Quarter and its businesses through the use of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The use of social media is an excellent way to promote the area more widely, effectively target audiences and generate new interest.
 
Initial feedback has been very positive so far. For the next two weeks we will be featuring businesses in the Market Hall. If you would like your business to be a part of this initiative please contact the BID office on 01332 419053 or via email to declare your interest.

As always, and in addition to the above, please include the @DerbyCQ tag in any social media posts you make and we will share where appropriate.

Other important news for businesses

 

 

The Cathedral Quarter BID last week arranged for the large banner promoting the Cathedral Quarter on the side of Chapel Street car park to be updated and replaced.

The original banner, installed in 2007, was beyond its lifespan and was severely damaged in high winds over the winter.

The banner is seen by hundreds of thousands of people each year, being in a prominent location adjacent to the inner ring road.

 

The Pyclet Parlour, located in the Market Hall in the Cathedral Quarter, has been nominated as one of three finalists in The One Show Best Street Food or Takeaway category for this year's BBC Food and Farming Awards.

 

A number of special broadcasts are planned around the BBC Food and Farming Awards, with this year's finalists featuring in a special edition of BBC Radio 4's The Food Programme, to be broadcast on May 1 and 2.

Crimestoppers currently have vacancies for volunteering positions for a vice chair, secretary and a treasurer for their Derbyshire committee. 

If you are interested in the role please email cv and covering letter to recruitment@crimestoppers-uk.org

 

The latest national chain to locate to the Cathedral Quarter opened it's doors last week with Cosy Club opening a restaurant, bar and lounge in the area.
