What’s a cake without icing? We’ve worked so hard getting the infrastructure of the Angel right and we want to show it to its best advantage – Christmas lights, summer flowers, and a loyalty card are designed to show off what we’ve got, attracting visitors and creating a bustling, lively town centre in which businesses can thrive.
One swallow may not make a summer, but our floral displays certainly do.
We’ve won numerous accolades for our hanging baskets and colourful planting including our innovative (and much used) floral bike planters.
Our seasonal lights have become the talk of the town. We’re still one of the few town centres which believes in putting the sparkle into festive and insists on lighting up the Angel, creating a magical atmosphere to attract revellers and shoppers.
From Chapel Market to Camden Passage and all along Upper Street we ensure that the Angel shines bright throughout the winter months.
IT'S A FACT. PEOPLE LIKE WORKING HERE
Businesses who have relocated to Angel say an interesting and lively environment is important in staff retention. Their employees love the rich culture, wide choice of restaurants, and lively bars and pubs. Our recently commissioned footfall survey says Thursday is the new Friday – it’s busiest after work. Friday is busiest for late nights out, and on Saturday the Angel is busiest 7-8pm.
By providing hanging baskets in the BID area, and the enhancement of the public realm with additional cleansing, also year round events angel.london has made a key contribution to this amazing award. Business involvement is key to success in London in Bloom and the partnership between Islington Gardeners, the council and BID businesses helps us achieve that.
