A key part of our vision for Wimborne is as:
“A town where all events collaborate and share, for the benefit of events, of the town and of the local economy.”
The mission of the Wimborne Festivals initiative is:
“To create the infrastructure and relationships that facilitate collaboration and sharing amongst events and festivals; working together for the benefit of Wimborne’s community and economy.”
Wimborne Minster and the immediate area are host to a wide range of events and festivals. Such events bring a number of benefits to the town, its residents and businesses, such as:
- The town is seen widely for the beautiful and welcoming place that it is
- Tens of thousands of additional people are brought into town
- Many of those people return to visit and shop in the area
- They add value to the local economy
Each festival has its own identity but also share many of the same challenges – ranging from storage through creating and maintaining policies to securing volunteers.
This web page has been set up to provide a focal point for festivals and to allow the sharing of information (below).
Policies and Procedures
We have created generic templates for many of the Policies and Procedures that are needed to run a safe and compliant festival or event. Please download and use as a starting point for your own documents.
Event organisers may need to submit their event details to the Safety Advisory Group. For more information on the process for submission click here.
