Event will highlight success of Bournemouth's night-time economy
1:30pm Monday 24th September 2012 in News
BOURNEMOUTH will use the opening night of the forthcoming Arts by the Sea Festival to showcase the success of the local night-time economy.
As one of 31 towns and cities to have Purple Flag accreditation, Bournemouth plans to host an exciting show at the Lansdowne next Saturday to mark Purple Flag Week.
The initiative is part of the Purple Flag accreditation scheme, a town and city centre award that aims to highlight the contribution made by the night-time economy and challenge the common negative perceptions about the safety of town centres during the evening.
The event is expected to start at 9pm and it will last for approximately an hour and a half.
Jon Shipp, Bournemouth’s night time economy co-ordinator, said: “We were proud to have been awarded the Purple Flag in 2010.
“This is now a great opportunity to provide awareness of our award to our residents and visitors. And with students at the core of the event, to the student population.”
