Bridgnorth Town Council would like to invite you to once again be part of our Christmas Lighting Up Event.
The Town Council is looking at having both local producers and local organisations having stalls along the High Street and this will be mixed with a funfair, entertainment and a stage where local schools and groups can showcase their talent.
The Town Council regret that it is unable to provide any stalls or gazebos or electricity for use at the event. Should you require power, only silent generators may be used. Due to the time of year, you must ensure that you secure your stall in the event of inclement weather. Gazebos must also be in good working condition due to health and safety guidelines.
Commercial catering stalls will be asked for a minimum donation of 20% of takings from the event which is payable at the end of the event. Proof of takings will be required.
For alcohol sales, a Temporary Events Notice will be required from Shropshire Council who can be contacted on 0345 6789 000.
Please note that Whitburn Street and the High Street will be closed from 12 noon until 10pm. There will also be no vehicular access to the High Street from Church Street or St. Mary's Street from this time unless instruction has been given by Town Council staff.
Caterers will be asked to arrive at a holding area on Severn Park, Mill Street, Bridgnorth, WV15 5AE at 1.30pm and no later than 2.15pm and report to a steward. You will then be instructed to proceed to the High Street at a given time slot due to the nature of the event location. Should you not report to Severn Park first, you will not be permitted to enter the event.
The closing date for applications is Monday 7th November 2016. Bookings will be confirmed prior to the event.
Copies of relevant insurance and risk assessments must be completed and provided to the Town Council on application. These should be posted to the Town Council offices, College House, St. Leonard's Close, Bridgnorth, Shropshire, WV16 4EJ.
By submitting your application, you agree to the terms and conditions of attendance as outlined above.
Confirmation of your attendance will be sent in due course following receipt of required documentation. For more information, please contact the Town Council on 01746 762231 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
