A Great Day for St Peters Quarter

Music and dance brought the streets of St Peters Quarter in Derby city centre to life on Saturday to celebrate the completion of regeneration work at St Peter's Cross.

 

The £1 million development at the junction of St Peter's Churchyard, East Street and St Peter's Street has been transformed by Derby City Council, in partnership with St Peters Quarter Business Improvement District (BID). 

 

BID Chairman Stephen Jeffery and Councillor Martin Rawson cut the ribbon to mark the completion of St Peters Cross

 

Warm Welcome For Acts

Blessed with warm weather, the event proved to be a major attraction for visitors, shoppers and local workers alike.

 

The event was organised by St Peters Quarter BID and featured acts brought together by Furthest from the Sea.

 

 

 

Window Vinyl for Local Businesses

Local businesses really joined in the spirit of the occasion by displaying window posters to publicise the day's entertainment.

 

The Event also saw the launch of window vinyl in the windows of McDonalds and Tesco, promoting St Peters Quarter.

 

If your business would like to discuss opportunities for vinyls within your shop window, promoting St Peters Quarter, please contact the BID office on 01332 419050

 

St Peters Quarter Full Window Displays

Ahead of Saturday's keynote event St Peters Quarter BID extended its programme of improving the look of certain vacant units with a full window vinyl as shown.


 

The BID is working with various partners, including Marketing Derby, to achieve occupancy of such units.

 

Promoting the Area via the Public Realm

A further innovation launched by St Peters Quarter BID ahead of Saturday's event was the introduction of promotional vinyl on litter bins in the area around St Peters Cross.

 

Working with key partners the BID will seek to extend this programme over the coming months.

Barclays Premier Trophy Visits St Peters Quarter

Barclays is giving football fans in Derby the opportunity to see first hand the ultimate prize in English football - the Barclays Premier League Trophy.


Fans will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with the Premier League Trophy when it visits the Barclays branch at St Peter’s Street, Derby on Saturday 27th September from 9.00am – 4.00pm.


Fans will be asked for a minimum donation of £1 for the photograph and all funds will be donated to Macmillan in support of their World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. In addition, local business Fast Feet Futsal will be demonstrating their Futsal skills.


The trophy visit coincides with a busy weekend in St Peters Quarter with a wide range of street entertainment coming to the area as part of Derby Festé in the city centre.


The UK-wide whirlwind tour of the Barclays Premier League trophy is designed to bring the most sought after prize in English football closer to fans.


Maxine Ward, branch manager said: "I am delighted to give people in Derby the chance to see the Premier League Trophy once again. Everyone is welcome to come down and have their photo taken with the trophy and it’s great to be involved in the wider Feste event, here in Derby.”


The Barclays Premier League Trophy is one of the most famous symbols in football. Due to its value, the Barclays Premier League trophy is always flanked by two security guards when on display.
