Bromley Borough is a veritable feast of fun this summer with lots of exciting events and activities to look forward to, as well as a sad goodbye to a stalwart of the Bromley retail community.

There is currently a huge focus on enhancing the experience of those who come to Bromley for their shopping. Improvements are already underway at Bromley South Station to enhance the street scene with the introduction of new signage to help visitors navigate their way around the town centre. Things have been given a facelift with better lighting for key buildings, coupled with an upgrade to the seating at the bus shelter at Bromley South.

Further improvements are also in the pipeline for The Glades Shopping Centre who have succeeded in their appeal to build 5 restaurants in Queens Garden. This should help make The Glades even more appealing for those who have ventured to Bromley for their retail therapy day out.

On a more sombre note, we’re sad to report that EW Payne Fine Jewellers will open its doors for the last time at the end of July. An iconic reputation within the town centre, EW Payne has been trading for 103 years, and will be a huge loss to the town.

Despite the sad news, there’s still much to look forward to over the summer. So to make sure you don’t miss out on what’s coming up, get these dates in your diary:

  • Why not participate in the Free Business Webinar on Marketing Growth on Wednesday 31st July? Run as part of the Bromley Business Growth CLUB in partnership with Action Coach this webinar is sponsored by the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund.  For more information please visit or to register for this event, contact Watch this space for further events later in the year in partnership with the Bromley North Village Town Team.

  • From July to early September Bromley High Street undergoes a transformation! The high street will become home to an art installation that brings the summer to Bromley. This inspiring and engaging installation is a display of lush artificial green lawn spilling out from the front of the Churchill Theatre and flowing through to the High Street. The lawn will play host to a variety of fun activities throughout the summer, culminating in a finale event on Sunday 1st September. If any local businesses would like to promote their business free of charge, give out leaflets, provide mascots, free samples please contact Lorraine McQuillan on Lorraine.McQuillan@Bromley.Gov.Uk

  • Let’s not forget the little ones in Bromley Borough. Get set for Dora the Explorer, who comes to town and gives a fantastic performance to all her fans at The Churchill Theatre on 12 -14 August. Dora will be visiting the town centre on 1 August to greet her fans and soak up the atmosphere before her show!

We’re all looking forward to bright and sunny times in Bromley Borough this summer!
