How BayPromo began…
BayPromoteam are a collective of like-minded people from the town, aiming to help promote our wonderful seaside town. We help do this by promoting events and everything positive about Herne Bay, and by staging large events ourselves which have included Sci-Fi By The Sea and The Herne Bay Air Show, along with a number of smaller events.
What we get up to…
Herne Bay App
A FREE Herne Bay App for smartphones, including iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows and iPad. It provides a wealth of information regarding the town, events, tides, property for sale, photos, videos, digital baycard, restaurants and much much more. Download from the Android Play Store – Apple App Store our App page.
This has been a huge success, with over 1000 people receiving regular updates on events and promotions in the town. The page has a fantastic sense of community, that sees many people commenting, liking, contributing photos and details of their own events and businesses. It’s exactly what we were aiming for and are proud that it’s been so well received.
Our twitter following is growing rapidly. We understand the importance of social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook to get information around instantly (at zero cost) and we are happy to embrace it.
The events calendar can be found on our website, facebook page and in the Herne Bay app. We try to scoop up as many events in the town that we can find, get told about and share both ways with the very informative bayguide website.
Herne Bay Zombie Crawl
Now established as a yearly event and the largest night time Zombie Crawl in the UK, Zombies now number in their thousands, helping to raise money for Kent Air Ambulance, before dancing the night away at our fantastic Zombie Ball. Now in its fifth year.
Sci-Fi by the Sea
6,500 Sci-fi fans descended on Herne Bay to enjoy a thrill packed day at our massive Si-Fi Event. This year we’re all set to have another round of fun at Sci-fi by the Sea 3 on Sunday 21st June.
A Titanic themed ball at Herne Bay’s Kings Hall. Over 600 black-tie and Edwardian dressed guests enjoyed an evening of music, exhibitions and dance.
Marketing Herne Bay
Ultimately, we want to market Herne Bay outside of the area, to help boost tourism, bring investment to the town and improve the brand of ‘Herne Bay’. We have a lot to offer in the town and we need to show people what a great place Herne Bay is to visit, at any time of year.
