High Street Lates Winter Lights Spectacular

Bromley Town Centre illuminated by Winter Lights Spectacular 

Crowds gathered in their thousands to see mesmerising performers and stunning light up installations that had Bromley town centre aglow on Wednesday, for a night of special local entertainment.

 

Friends and families came together to make the most of the darker evenings with a host of activity, journeying through light up tunnels and touching the enticing sensory spheres across the high street. Spark! LED Drummers proved especially popular with visitors, wowing the crowds with their dazzling routines throughout the evening. Residents also made the most of cocktail masterclasses, creating colourful drinks to match the glow-in-the-dark face painting that many had adopted for the evening..

 

Delivered in partnership with Your Bromley, the Winter Lights Spectacular was the third and final event of the BR1 Lates programme, which followed Bromley’s selection as one of the Mayor of London’s Night Time Enterprise Zones. Thousands have already attended the special Library Lates event in April and the Sport and Wellbeing Festival in July.

 

Your Bromley BID Manager, France Forrest said: “It was amazing to see our town come to life last night for Winter Lights Spectacular.  We were delighted that several businesses in the town centre, opened late too, making the most of the busy evening.  It has been really exciting for Your Bromley to be involved in the BR1 Lates events this year and we hope visitors to the town have enjoyed these unique evenings.”

 

Councillor Yvonne Bear, Executive Councillor for Renewal, Recreation and Housing said: “What an amazing finale for our BR1 Lates programme! I’m delighted that so many residents were able to attend and experience all that Bromley town centre has to offer of an evening. I want to thank our partners for helping to put all these events together, and all those who attended and showed their support for local businesses. I am sure there is plenty more excitement to come on our thriving high streets, so look out for more great nights out in Bromley in due course.”

 

BR1 Lates has sought to encourage more residents to spend their evenings locally following Bromley’s selection as one of the Mayor of London’s Night Time Enterprise Zones. Bromley was one of three areas chosen to receive a £250,000 grant from the Mayor of London which has been invested in events and improved infrastructure in Bromley town centre, with Bromley Council and Your Bromley collectively providing match funding to the grant.
