The Wimborne Business Improvement District (BID) is a business-led initiative
to invest money into the local economy of a town.
Wimborne Square Booking Arrangements
The centre of Wimborne has a large paved Square which is ideal for holding events and other types of activities. The BID actively encourages bookings for the Square and manages the bookings process. The nature of the activities that are acceptable have been agreed by working closely with the both the District and Town Councils and the Chamber of Trade.
It is possible to book just a small space on the square e.g. for a small stall or the whole square (for a larger event).
In the first, please direct any queries to the BID office. Please see below for additional guidance.
The Wimborne BID charge an administrative fee for managing the Square. Please see the pricing structure below. If you have any questions, please email the BID office: email@example.com.

Guidance on booking The Square
Wimborne Business Investment District (BID) manage the bookings for the Square on behalf of the town. No funding is provided by the local authorities for this function, therefore a small charge is made to cover the administration and where required; presence on the Square on the day of an event.
No bookings can be taken unless the completed forms are returned, these are;
- The Booking Form
- The Hire Agreement
You must also provide a copy of your scanned Public Liability Insurance document – that will be current at the time of the event. The minimum limit is £5 million. If your renewal is due before the event, you must provide the renewed documentation prior to the event.
ALL THREE ITEMS MUST BE WITH THE BID OFFICE IN ORDER FOR A BOOKING TO BE CONFIRMED.
If we have made a note of your required date but another booking is made by someone who is able to submit all of the relevant forms, their later booking will be taken in preference to the provisional one that has no forms yet submitted.
WE PREFER ELECTRONIC COPIES OF ALL DOCUMENTS – PLEASE AVOID SENDING HARD COPIES IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.
