In case you haven’t heard already the iconic locomotive ‘The Flying Scotsman’ will be steaming into East Grinstead 13th to 19th April.
The Bluebell Railway is extremely proud to be hosting this special event and it is sure to bring attention and large numbers of visitors to East Grinstead. These visitors will be focused around the stations and track, but what we would like is for as many of those people as possible to be coming into the town and enjoying what East Grinstead has to offer; What you, as local businesses have to offer.
Would you be able to attract attention by perhaps offering a ‘special’ for anyone with a ‘Flying Scotsman’ ticket for example or a ‘special’ open to anyone during the ‘Flying Scotsman’ visit? Could you dress your windows with eye catching displays? Could you use your social media to let people know you are close to this event? Could you put a banner on your website welcoming the Flying Scotsman? Or do you have some ideas yourselves that you would be willing to share with us?
We will create a page on Visiteastgrinstead.com to showcase these offers and a buzz about them via our social media platforms with links via The East Grinstead Business Association and East Grinstead Town Council and generally ‘shout’ about what we have and the welcome they will receive here in East Grinstead. Let’s tell people who we are, what we have and why they should be spending time here. Let’s make the most of this opportunity and boost our local economy.
