Event description


Revive and Thrive have teamed up with Lancaster BID and Lancaster City Council to organise what looks to be an essential networking and strategic knowledge sharing regional event for the Northwest.

This prestigious event is for anyone wanting to make a contribution to the future success of Lancaster city centre and for those wanting to network and collaborate with other Northwest professionals.


We have a fantastic lineup of speakers who are going to present examples of supporting creative and resilient high streets and share best practice on how to face these challenges.
