Opportunity: Help Bring Christmas to Hampstead

The Hampstead Village Business Improvement District (BID) is considering holding a Christmas Festival in Hampstead Village, London NW3 at the end of November. 

In previous years a group of volunteers has put together a large-scale Christmas Festival which grew year on year to attract upwards of 50,000 with stalls, fairground, attractions, music etc.  This year (2017) a smaller-scale event is envisaged, owing to Council and Police requirements, as well as our own revised capacity as the event will now be overseen and funded by the BID.  

We need an experienced event management professional to help us run a smaller event under the overall management of the BID. 

Expected attendance 10-20,000.  We have our own contacts and considerable local and practical experience but need a professional coordinator. There are high expectations of the event so it must run smoothly and with a keen regard to H&S considerations. It is essential that you have a track record of running similar-sized events in an urban environment and have associated references.  

For an initial discussion, please contact [email protected] or contact Caroline Goldsack, Chief Executive, Hampstead Village BID on 07970 939395
