Au­tumn means the en­ter­tain­ment on of­fer in South­port never lets up

Midweek Visiter - - Southport Bid -

NOW that the sum­mer has gone and the new school year has started, our thoughts are turn­ing to au­tumn.

It’s al­ways a great time of year for events in the town and this year is no ex­cep­tion.

Later this week we’ll see the re­turn of the Air Show and the new Fri­day evening fly­ing dis­play.

Next month our town hosts the ever-pop­u­lar Bri­tish Mu­si­cal Fire­work Cham­pi­onships, the BID’s very own Hal­lowe’en Fes­ti­val, other scary Hal­lowe’en hap­pen­ings at Plea­sure­land, and the South­port Com­edy Fes­ti­val.

All great events that will do the town proud.

And then head­ing into Novem­ber we see the start of the Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties be­gin­ning with the BIDor­gan­ised Christ­mas lights switch-on and Sefton Coun­cil’s Christ­mas mar­ket.

Our ice rink will start to be built too, ready for a De­cem­ber open­ing date.

We’ve said it many times be­fore – we be­lieve that South­port punches well above its weight when it comes to both the qual­ity and num­ber of events that the BID, Sefton Coun­cil and oth­ers put on in the town.

Later this month we’ll be pro­mot­ing South­port at the REVO trade show in Liver­pool.

It’s a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote the in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties that we have to of­fer in our town to over 2,500 com­mer­cial agents and prop­erty spe­cial­ists.

There are still too many empty prop­er­ties in town but new open­ings Patis­serie Valerie and Mez­za­nine, and then later this year Bistrot Pierre, have shown that busi­nesses are pre­pared to in­vest in the town.

Those de­ci­sions are not taken lightly.

The key driver that in­vestors look at is foot­fall.

As a coastal town we’re a nat­u­ral mag­net for visi­tors dur­ing the warmer weather.

Ex­tend­ing our events cal­en­dar into au­tumn and win­ter pro­vides more op­por­tu­ni­ties to bring peo­ple into town.

And it helps demon­strate to po­ten­tial in­vestors that we’re more than just a sea­sonal re­sort.

The Bri­tish Mu­si­cal Fire­work Cham­pi­onships form part of South­port’s year-round en­ter­tain­ment
