Promoting partnership and supporting businesses in cowes and its surrounding areas

Flags and Banners

Flags and banners in Cowes High Street, and the immediate adjoining roads, are an ideal platform to promote events, sponsor brands, etc.

The High Street is busy all year round with local residents, but becomes even busier during peak times such as Cowes Week, Round The Island weekend, Powerboat Festival etc. There are over 60 major yachting events alone during the summer season attracting tens of thousands of 'yotties' and their families. Even 'out of season', there is a constant stream of tourist coaches and visitors to the Cowes, all keen to see 'the home of yachting'.

Locations such as Northwood House and the adjoining park, Cowes Parade on the seafront, and Cowes Yacht Haven, just to name a few, are all ideal locations for events such as concerts, car rallies, etc.

There is rarely a time throughout the year when something is not happening in Cowes.

Cowes Business Association has the sole planning permission to display flags and banners in the High Street area, and is happy to rent out these locations at a rate considerably less than a normal commercial rate for such high profile locations. There are approximately 30 banner sites and 60 flag poles available to rent.
