KEYWORDS & NOTES DETAILS
Notes:
Dartford Borough Council is seeking bids for the sole catering concession at this year’s Dartford Festival. The Dartford Festival will take place on the weekend of Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of July 2012, incorporating a large programme of events, competitions, entertainment, fairground etc.
The event is one of the largest free events within the South East of England, attracting in the region of 60,000 people, with an estimate of approximately 20,000 being in the Festival site at any one time. The Festival will be open from 10am to 7pm on the Saturday, although the fairground will operate until 10pm on the Saturday night, and from 10am to 6pm on the Sunday. The setting up by contractors and stall holders etc will commence from the Wednesday (11th July 2012) prior to the event.
In a change to previous years, Dartford Borough Council will be inviting companies to submit a single bid for all the catering concessions, i.e. the individual catering concessions will not be awarded on a lot by lot basis.
There will be no restrictions on concessionaires sub-contracting parts of the service out – however, the contract will only be agreed with the single successful bidder.
The successful bid submission will allow the concessionaire the sole rights to supply their goods for the duration of the Dartford Festival. Concessionaires should be aware that the Café in the Park operates throughout the year including during the Dartford Festival.
The deadline for expression of interest and submission of a bid is:
12:00:00 Friday 3rd February 2012.
