Business opportunities in District parks

Published on Monday, 5th February 2018

The Council is looking for new and exciting events, family activities and concessions for ‘Summer in Maldon District 2018’.

Each year thousands of visitors and tourists choose to spend their time in the Maldon District which creates significant opportunities for new and existing businesses.

We are inviting expressions of interest from people and organisations who would like to bring new events, activities or food concessions to the Council owned District parks and public spaces.

Interested people should contact, 01621 854477 or find more information at

A Council spokesperson said “Do you run a mobile rock climbing wall, Segways, ice cream stalls or juice bar? Are you a comic, musician or family entertainer? Do you want to reach thousands of new customers? We would love to hear from you.”

Opportunities exist across various District parks and open spaces from just £15 per day. Including:
