New dinner & show discount initiative from Ilkley BID

Ilkley is well known for its vibrant and eclectic culture scene and nightlife with something for everyone and now attendees of shows can save when dining with selected hospitality venues.

The Kings Hall Theatre and The Ilkley Playhouse have a packed schedule of theatre productions, touring musicians, tribute bands, pantos, comedy shows and more across the year, and in October the town welcomes an influx of visitors to its world famous Ilkley Literature Festival, the second oldest literature festival in the UK. All this is one of the reasons why the town was chosen as The Sunday Times Best Place to Live in the UK 2022.

To celebrate the festival and to support the town’s hospitality venues, the Ilkley Business Improvement District has launched a new Dinner & Show initiative where attendees of all town centre shows and events can receive 15% off the food bill for a pre-show dinner at participating local restaurants.

Diners can benefit from a discounted meal on all bookings before 7pm when showing their show or event ticket before enjoying the entertainment of a show, production or literary event afterwards.

The restaurants which are involved in the scheme include Banyan, Broadley’s Bistro, The Craiglands Hotel, The Ilkley Cow, La Casita, Sachi’s, Panache, The Yard and The Ticket Office.

Helen Rhodes, BID Manager said: “We are really well catered for in Ilkley with a constant variety of shows and theatre performances to choose from, whatever your interest, and there’s always a buzz when the Ilkley Literature Festival takes place. We’re keen to encourage visitors and residents to enjoy the great food and service in our participating restaurants which is why we’re launching this new initiative. Hopefully it’ll encourage more people to enjoy a pre show lunch or dinner and visit a restaurant in town they may never have visited before.”

The offer is valid now. Booking is essential, please mention the offer when booking and show your event tickets to claim the discount.
