Retail & Leisure BID (formerly City Central BID) was established in 2005 and represents more than 630 businesses across the retail and leisure heart of Liverpool city centre.

The BID’s role is to promote the city centre as a safe, clean, attractive and vibrant destination and to host events that will help generate footfall.

The BID funds numerous projects from the award winning ‘cop shop’ to an annual Mystery Shop programme that tracks customer service. It also hosts and supports live events, most recently the Christmas Light Scheme across the BID areas.

It was successful in a reballot in July 2013 to deliver a new 5 year programme.
