REQUEST FOR EVENT PROPOSALS – 2024-2025

Hyndburn Borough Council are seeking to issue grants to event provider(s), to aid in the organisation and management of events through the period of April 1st 2024- March 31st 2025. These events must be held on Hyndburn’s high streets, must have additional funding other than that of the Council grant, and must be designed to benefit the businesses within the high street area.

The purpose of this commission is to run an event programme that allows the organiser(s) to promote Hyndburn’s high streets, and raise awareness to prospective visitors and increase footfall from the wider Hyndburn, East Lancashire and North West community.

We wish to advise all prospective event providers that Accrington Town Centre has been awarded Levelling Up Funding. This means there are some exciting upcoming transformative developments that you will need to consider when developing your plans for 2024-25 events.

One of the key projects entails the renovation of Accrington Market, a central hub within the town. Traders will be temporarily relocated to the town square by the end of 2023 to facilitate the refurbishment. While this means that the town square will be unavailable for events, we are excited to highlight the numerous opportunities and enhanced infrastructure that will arise from the developments.

We greatly appreciate your understanding during this transitional period and want to assure you that we are committed to ensuring that the impact on events are minimised and that suitable alternative venues are available.

If you wish to discuss alternative event spaces in Accrington Town Centre or if you require the linked documents in an alternative format, please contact Victoria Tindall by calling 01254 380 220, alternatively email victoria.tindall@hyndburnbc.gov.uk
