Brixton X Harlem

In 2021, we twinned with Harlem’s 125th Street BID to share best practice, explore our shared place values and find exciting opportunities for collaboration. Since twinning we have celebrated our common threads through events including the Brixton X Harlem Festival.

Cultural events

Brixton BID provides cultural events and additional live entertainment in the public realm, as well as supporting other town centre events. In 2023 Brixton was a named destination for London Festival of Architecture.

Brixton Performs Festival

Four years ago we created Brixton Performs Festival, a annual multi-venue celebration of comedy, music and performance.

Winter Activation

Each year we create activations around Brixton town centre. This has previously included lighting, installation of a Christmas Tree, switch-on events as well as live music across Brixton.

Marketing & Communication

We promote our business members through our channels including a year round social media strategy. We currently feature over 30 members per month across social media, our newsletters and in print media such as The South Londoner and Brixton Bugle.


Receiving industry recognition for the innovative work of the BID and showcasing Brixton at global conferences including Association of Town & City Management’s Summer School, International Downtown Association, the Berlin Chamber of Commerce and City Nation Place.

Public Art

We are committed to the installation of public art, and murals. Previously Brixton BID supported 105 Brixton Design Trail headline projects, exhibitions and events and continue our work with local arts organisations to bring art to our town centre.

Campaigning Creative Industries

Building on the Mayor of London’s successful CEZ bid, we champion Brixton as a fantastic location for creative industries, to help attract and support artists and creative businesses and develop skills and jobs for local people in the creative and digital industries.
