BR1 Lates

Bromley Town Centre has been selected as one of London’s three new Night Time Enterprise Zones, enabling the town to host a series of evening events and projects to boost activity after 6pm, with events in the BR1 Lates campaign taking place throughout the year.

High Street Lates: A Sport and Wellbeing Festival

On Tuesday 25 July from 16:00 to 21:00, Bromley Town Centre will host a Sport and Wellbeing Festival promoting active and healthy lifestyles whilst showcasing Bromley as a vibrant and exciting evening destination.

There will be a variety of local sports clubs offering sporting tasters and performances. Visitors will be able to take on the 7.5m climbing wall, Crazy golf, F1 Simulator or BMX bike races.

Or take a break  relax in our  wellbeing zone with mini heath checks available. Bromley Central Library, the host of the first highly successful BR1 Lates event - Library Lates, will stay open until 9pm to add additional activity in the town centre into the evening.

The library will also hold a special screening of the Bromley FC-based film, ‘The Bromley Boys’. Book your free tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

Lolli’s Bromley and Crepe Affaire will both join the fun and extend their opening hours for the festival, found on the High Street and Market Square respectively!

The festival will also offer street food vans and bar, a silent disco, live music, sports photography exhibition and much more!

As part of the festivities, an eye-catching canopy of multi-coloured umbrellas will be unveiled in Bromley High Street to celebrate neurodiversity. This will be the first neurodiversity Umbrella Project installation in London, being delivered in partnership with the ADHD Foundation - The Neurodiversity Charity and sponsors Hanson Regan and OPNFLO. Each display of colourful umbrellas will represent the one in five people who have a neurodevelopmental condition such as, ADHD, autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia or tourette’s syndrome, which fall under the umbrella term of neurodiversity. The umbrella project will be launched at 18:00 on the pedestrian area of the High Street and will remain in situ until September to be enjoyed throughout the summer.

Library Lates

The first special BR1 Lates event was a hugely popular night of special entertainment that saw huge crowds dancing and having fun in Bromley Central Library this April, with almost 3000 visitors in total. The Library Lates saw live music, dancing, cocktail making, and book reading from special guests Kate Lawler and Sandra Agard. The silent disco drew a large crowd of all ages and a particular highlight saw the enthralling Spark Drummers bring colour, rhythm and flair to the town centre. Read more about the night  or check out some of the photos on our Instagram
