Destination enters a new era

A vibrant new ‘Visit Royal Sutton Coldfield’ brand has been launched by local business leaders, with the ambition to encourage more people to choose the Royal Town’s centre as a destination to work, study, shop and enjoy.

The launch follows the recruitment of Michelle Baker as the new manager of Sutton Coldfield Business Improvement District (BID) and provides a positive rebrand which reflects the BID’s renewed focus on raising the profile of Sutton Coldfield town centre.

Michelle said: “The BID has been in place for ten years and it’s key that we raise the profile of both the BID company and the town centre to place Sutton Coldfield firmly on the map. 

“This new branding of ‘Visit Royal Sutton Coldfield’ will help us do that, by sending out the message that this is a wonderful place to spend time, to eat, drink, shop, relax and enjoy everything we have to offer.

“We have big plans for the town centre including delivering high profile events, launching a new food and drink guide to promote the 50 places to eat and drink in the town and much more."

The new Visit Royal Sutton Coldfield brand was revealed by BID board members at Sutton Coldfield Business Fair, along with its striking logo, which features four classic icons reflecting the unique nature of Sutton.

The logo includes a Tudor rose, the town’s ancient symbol, a green leaf to symbolise the park, a church spire denoting Holy Trinity – the town’s oldest building – and a crown, representing the town’s famous ‘Royal’ status.

Michelle added: “This colourful new brand is just the first step – we are exploring so many exciting ideas for the town centre, such as open-air cinemas and speciality markets and other high-profile events that will encourage people to Visit Royal Sutton Coldfield.”

Sutton Coldfield Business Improvement District (BID) commenced its new five-year term in January this year and raises £200,000 per annum for town centre and business improvements. 377 businesses in the town centre pay a levy which funds town centre initiatives and events.

Sutton Coldfield BID is a business-led, not for profit organisation voted for by the town's businesses, with an ambitious plan to transform Sutton Coldfield town centre making it more welcoming, vibrant and influential.
