Info: Bournemouth Borough Council has issued a tender as it seeks a programme director for Bournemouth Wheels Festival.

The Bournemouth Wheels Festival, organised by Bournemouth Tourism, was introduced in 2014 and takes place over three days – May 29-31, 2015. This event is free and in 2014 attracted approximately 500,000 visitors. It includes three days of high energy across the town and seafront from beautiful historic and classic cars to world class BMX stunts, monster truck parades, F1Cars, skateboard stunts and motorcycle displays. In addition there will be wheel themed entertainment such as live music as well as family entertainment throughout the seafront and gardens.  There will be trading, exhibition and promotional sites along the seafront, East Overcliff and Town Centre.

Bournemouth Borough Council is currently looking to purchase the services of a company or individual that has extensive experience in creating, managing, programming, marketing and commercialising festivals and events that attract in excess of 100,000 people, effectively managing budgets in excess of £750,000 for any one event.
