Marchday - Welcome to Marchday - National BCO Award Winners!

Hello, we're Marchday, a refreshingly different property company.

We're a team who dare to dream, who work in our own developments, who love design, architecture and art as much as we love doing deals and providing exceptional customer service. That may sound a little eccentric but that’s alright – we aim to be different, do things better and be more involved than most other property companies.

We take the time and trouble to be a little more thoughtful, interested and available to our customers and partners. We get a lot back by putting more in. Our schemes are successful and our customers are happy and that creates a landscape that’s a joy to work in.

Our developments tend to be large in scale and our vision for what’s possible, in regenerative terms, is equally bold. We keep on trying to do things better, greener and happier. It feels good and does good too. We hope you enjoy our site.

General - Best of Darlington Award goes to……

Best of Darlington

Marchday were delighted to have been nominated for a ‘Best of Darlington’ award for ‘Putting Darlington on the Map’ for our ‘Festival of Thrift’ held last summer at Lingfield Point.  So imagine our surprise and excitement when we actually won, a very proud moment indeed.

General - Back by popular demand – Futurescope’s ‘Sunflowers’

Sunflower

Lingfield Point has always believed that the power of art can challenge the perception of a place so when we had the opportunity of enjoying Futurescope’s first – and possibly – most-loved image of this gigantic, outdoor art installation, we couldn’t resist bringing it out with the sunshine!

Heralding the start of Spring – even Darlington’s sunshine came out especially for the occasion – we’re enjoying a walk down memory lane with this much-loved first image of Futurescope.   The two year-long sequential, outdoor exhibition of eight massive circular photographs and images were displayed on the landmark Power House at one of the major access routes into Darlington and set the pace for Lingfield Point’s art strategy – outlining our ambition to become a place where ‘art happens’.
