Bournemouth on Screen

Introducing our new TV ad for 2013, which airs on ITV meridian from 29 Nov – 24 Dec.

In its charming manner and enchanting style, it shows off what Bournemouth has to offer this Christmas, including the Gardens of Light, Santa’s Grotto and our biggest outdoor ice rink yet.

Flowing on from last year’s campaign, Lauren Bannon’s stunning rendition of our own twist on the classic ‘Beside the Seaside’ ties it all together.

This Christmas, Make it Bournemouth.


Watch our charming TV ad from 2012. Featuring local artist Charlie Hole playing a modern twist on the classic ‘Beside the Seaside’, we set the relaxed, laid-back vibe of the town.

It celebrates what Bournemouth has to offer at Christmas – from the small boutiques to the grand department stores, the outdoor ice rink to the wealth of bars and restaurants, and positions Bournemouth as a place where you can really ‘make a day of it.’
