Lamppost banners - advertising

Does your advertising have a good feel?

Southampton city councils continuing work in dressing the city has recognised the benefits of lamp column banners for local businesses to increase the awareness of their brands.
The use of banners for advertising, by our business partners, creates a bright and positive image on our streets. For a number of years we have used this format to promote our own events with great success while giving a carnival feeling to the street scene.

Choose your customers.

We have identified nearly 200 excellent lamp column sites in Southampton which offer fantastic opportunities for high footfall marketing.

We have limited the number of sites so the city does not become cluttered and thus giving your advertising more impact.

You can choose from areas of around our city with different criteria’s to meet with your marketing strategy.

  • High traffic flow routes

  • Award winning city centre parks.

  • The South of England’s premier retail areas with a high footfall of shoppers

  • Social areas with bars and cafes where potential customers are relaxing.

Costs start at £1000 per lamp column for 12 months advertising plus the costs of the design and production of the banner.

There are opportunities for you to have a long term arrangement with sites outside of your business however the majority of arrangements will be sold by the street.
