Heart of London Business Alliance operates as a Business Improvement District, representing 500 businesses in Piccadilly, St James's and Leicester Square.
Leicester Square has been known as the home of entertainment since 1670. However, it offers so much more. The Heart of London Business Alliance wanted Blakeborough to drive footfall to the area by highlighting the Square’s star line up of entertainment, events and places to be seen over the festive season.
Organise two influencer tours taking in the Square’s festive attractions - one aimed at millennials and the second at the family market.
Blakeborough set up a tour of Leicester Square for 16 millennial influencers taking in cocktails in the Indigo Bar, “behind the scenes” at two theatres, the Christmas Market and MOD Pizza. The influencers were also treated to a 1920’s makeover and a preview screening of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
For the family tour, Blakeborough devised and escorted five top family bloggers and their children on a festive family-focused itinerary including a visit to the Lego store, M&M World, a special 4-d cinema screening, a theatrical extravaganza at the Christmas Market Spigeltent and a pizza lunch.
