Book now for the next Lancaster BID Breakfast – FREE of charge for businesses in the city centre.
The next in our popular series of BID Breakfast events takes place on Wednesday 1st April on the theme of ‘Are You Eden Project Ready?’
With deals on the land agreed with Lancaster City Council, the prospect of the Eden Project North on our doorstep is getting ever closer to becoming a reality.
Although the project will be physically located in Morecambe, it is anticipated to fast become a major tourist attraction and has the potential to become a real game changer for the whole district.
This event will enable you to hear about the project first hand and ask questions of our panel including Dave Harland, Chief Executive of Eden Project International.
Following the success of our last BID Breakfast, we will once again be using a Question Time format. The panel is still being finalised but will include:
- Chair – Professor Dame Sue Black (Lancaster University)
- David Harland – Eden Project International
- Phil Simpson – Lancaster BID & Lancaster Brewery
- Wes Johnson – Lancaster & Morecambe College
- Caroline Rayner – Baines Wilson LLP
Further panel members TBC – check back for updates.
In true “Question Time” style it would be great to receive some questions for before the event, so please feel free (if your attending) to pose a question to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are very grateful to Baines Wilson LLP for sponsoring this event.
Caroline Rayner, Partner at Baines Wilson LLP in Lancaster said: “The Eden Project North is an extremely exciting sustainable regeneration project for the local area. There is a real buzz about the place with both businesses and local people wanting to get behind the Project. Not only will it substantially boost the local economy by attracting an increased number of visitors, but it will also have a positive impact in terms of recruitment and investment into infrastructure, accommodation and hospitality. We are pleased to sponsor this breakfast event to support Lancaster businesses and to learn more about how the local business community can invest in and prepare for the Eden Project and the opportunities that it brings.”
