Announcing the launch of our festive campaign: 'Make it a Marlow Christmas'

Organised by the Marlow Chamber of Trade & Commerce

Partnering with Marlow Town Council & Buckinghamshire Council



It’s been a gruelling year. And with Christmas now just around the corner, this is

the last opportunity for many local businesses to make the most of 2020.


Responding to recent surveys, we are therefore pleased to announce the launch

of our BUY LOCAL campaign: `Make it a Marlow Christmas’.


The campaign pulls together a number of events and business initiatives under a

single banner. With due regard for the Covid-19 guidelines, we want to reinforce

the message that local is good, encourage the community to buy local, shop local and source local - and generate as much interest for local businesses as we can.


This local campaign will include:


  • A Christmas Scavenger Hunt - challenges, clues and window spotting

  • opportunities for families, with prizes

  • Best dressed Christmas Window competition - for retail and hospitality

  • Best dressed ‘Google my Business’ competition - for everyone

  • An advent calendar/24 days of local offers and incentives – for all

  • businesses

  • A late opening evening (or two, depending on demand)*

  • Three Saturdays of free parking, funded by Buckinghamshire Council

  • MarlowFM providing airtime for you and your business

  • All under the festive light display, courtesy of our own Marlow Town

  • Council and their generous sponsors


How to get involved


Promotion of this campaign on social media, local radio and press will begin early

in November, with the main push once the Christmas lights are switched on.


To find out more, including our countdown to Christmas timetable, where your

business can best be involved and to make sure you have the chance to be a

part of it, please register your interest as soon as possible, here on our website:

campaign , please don’t hesitate to let us know via our contact page.
