Otley’s First Coffee Festival
We are delighted to announce that we have agreed a £3,000 grant to support the 1st Otley Coffee Festival to be held on Saturday 25th April 2020.
There will be a Launch Event held on Tuesday 8th October 2019 to explain the day, introduce the Otley Coffee Culture website and issue the first tickets. Please make a note in your diary now, as ticket sales will begin after this and you will not want to miss out!

Know Your Rights – Rent & Lease Agreements
We have teamed up with James Dale, Partner at Newstead & Walker Solicitors, to give help and advice to any businesses who are having problems resolving issues with their landlords.
We are currently working with 2 businesses in the town to help resolve building repair disputes which have come to light recently through our face to face visits with businesses by our BID Champion.
James was also our Guest Speaker at our AGM on 30th May where he spoke on the same subject.
If you are having sleepless nights or just need some advice on how to tackle an ongoing problem, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visit Otley Tourism Leaflets
You will probably have seen a selection of leaflets around the town which have been designed and distributed by the Tourism Team at Visit Otley. These have been part funded by Otley BID as a way to encourage more visitors to come to Otley and increase footfall into our wonderful independent shops.
These are currently available in The Core and in the Library. If you would like to hold some in your business for customers to pick up, then please contact https://www.visitotley.co.uk/contact/
