Welcome to CQ Live – the new digital platform created by the Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District (BID) to showcase our local businesses at this crucial time in the run up to Christmas.

You may have previously read the annual CQ Winter Life magazines which have been popular with visitors for the past 12 years.

However, in line with changing consumer habits and the on-going effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, the BID has taken the decision to migrate and update this information online with a brand refresh and direct links to businesses’ online and social media platforms.

Our decision to launch CQ Live is backed by recent national research by Maybe which is part of the Government’s High Street Task Force which revealed:

31% of people said that Covid-safe procedures will determine where they shop this Christmas

32% said they were planning to shop local

67% said that it would be ‘Christmas as usual’

58% said they would be researching online before shopping this year

We hope that you enjoy Cathedral Quarter Live where you will find information about

  • Christmas gift ideas
  • Where to update your wardrobe and look this winter
  • Places where you can order takeaway or deliveries in the short term and then eat out safely
  • What’s on in the Cathedral Quarter

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Cathedral Quarter where you are assured of a warm and safe welcome.

Kind regards

Martin Langsdale MBE

Board Chair of the Cathedral Quarter BID
