Established in 2013, Orpington 1st is a not-for-profit company led by local businesses working to make Orpington a better place to live, work, and visit. As well as advocating on behalf of the Orpington business community we have organised and funded a full calendar of town centre events - such as Light Up Orpington, Orpington Santa Dash, and the town’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations - and invested significantly in improving the look and feel of the town through initiatives like our comprehensive summer planting programme, and the installation of Christmas lights. Orpington 1st has been involved in Priory Live since its creation in 2014 and is delighted to continue to support and celebrate this fantastic Orpington festival.
