Joana Santos, BID Manager for Visit Staines, commented “We’re getting ready for our summer of events here in Staines-upon-Thames and we are so excited for everything that is to come. Our collaboration with Spelthorne Borough Council for the return of the Outdoor Theatre is a fantastic way to make the performing arts are accessible to all, whilst our Summer of Sport is a great way to get local families moving out in the sunshine (let’s hope!). We look forward to seeing some familiar faces once again, and welcoming any new visitors to our lovely town.”
