Welcome to Royston First

If you’ve attended the Christmas Lights Switch On, got involved in the children’s town trails, or benefited from the free parking schemes, such as the scratchcards, these are all examples of the tangible support Royston First BID provides for businesses and the wider community in Royston.

Royston First is the name of the town’s Business Improvement District (BID). Established in 2009, it is funded primarily by town centre and industrial estate businesses with the aim of raising the profile of Royston as a great retail, tourist, and business destination, and improving the experience for those who live, visit and work in the town.

We hope you find our website useful as you explore more.
