Riverside Market

After the roaring success of the first Bank Holiday Riverside Market last month, over 40 stalls will be down at South Quay this Monday (4th) again offering a range of tempting offerings. It is a great new offering for the city and we would encourage you to go along if you have the day off or in your lunch break if you don’t. The event runs from 10am to 4pm as does the new regular Sunday Upmarket which is at the Cathedral end of the High Street and sells food, art, crafts, vintage, antique, retro, and unusual goods.


Worcester Woods Retail Park

It is a topic that many BID businesses are talking about and there are still comments and reports being added both in favour and against the proposed Worcester Woods Retail Park. To view these, please visit  There is no set date for the Planning Committee to decide on the outcome of this large development but we will endeavour to keep you informed of any news.
