Bath BID To Celebrate 'quality, Diversity And Vibrancy' For Purple Flag Weekend

Bath will be flying the purple flag this weekend to celebrate the city's diverse and vibrant night life.

Purple Flag is a nationwide scheme which celebrates cities and towns which have a successful evening economy.


The annual celebration, which recognises excellence in the management of the evening and night-time economy, will take place this weekend (6 - 8 October 2017).

It works like the Blue Flag for beaches with cities going through an assessment every year which looks at wellbeing, movement, welcome and sense of place.

The Bath BID and the Night Time Economy group are using the Purple Flag weekend in Bath to remind people of the quality, diversity and vibrancy of our night time economy and at the same time to celebrate the work we are all doing to maintain the safety of the city centre during the evening period under the banner of ‘Enjoy Bath After 5pm’.



Bath has had its purple flag status for the last seven years and over the next six weeks the Bath BID team will be working closely with the police, council and the universities to ensure that the city is successful in the renewal process.

BID manager Allison Herbert said: "Bath does a great job on the welcome, the movement and the sense of place. The city boasts a range of excellent venues to visit in the evenings, from restaurants, pubs and clubs to theatres and cinemas.
