Don’t Be Blue Monday

January 14, 2022 9:19 am

Blue Monday might be heading this way on 17 January but here at Swansea BID we are re-branding it Don’t Be Blue Monday.  Here are some good reasons to be cheerful from the Swansea BID team:

Niamh Davies, Administration Officer, said: “I’m really looking forward to seeing the great acts that are heading this way, thanks to the opening of Swansea Arena. I think the mix of acts they have planned so far – from Jersey Boys and Will Young to great comedy performers like Rob Beckett, Katherine Ryan and John Bishop, and classic music shows like Elvis Costello, Level 42 and Steve Hackett – will attract a range of people into the city centre ahead of the shows. This is a very good reason for Don’t Be Blue Monday.”

Andrew Douglas, Operations Manager: “I’m feeling in a positive, ‘Don’t Be Blue Monday’ mood about all the exciting and innovative new businesses that have set up in the city centre over the past few months – and there are more to come. Places like Cwtsch Hostel,  Stinky Boys, Marley Vibes, Crazy Baker, The Jam Jar, Toxic Lace and others, all of which have really unique identities and help to make our city centre even more attractive to consumers.”

Russell Greenslade, Swansea BID Chief Executive: “I’m saying Don’t Be Blue Monday because the Swansea city centre regeneration project is full steam ahead. The fact that Urban Splash is on board as Swansea Council’s regeneration partner for key sites in the city is very big news and I am looking forward to seeing in detail the vision they have for the Civic Centre, the former St David’s shopping centre site, Swansea Central north, alongside the River Tawe in the St Thomas area of the city. Let’s try to stay positive. Swansea BID area businesses have been through so much and have come out fighting. There are better times ahead.”
