If no other organiser requests the same dates, special event status will be granted, subject to the event meeting the conditions outlined within our Street Trading Policy. Where two or more organisers wish to hold their events on the same day, and are unable to operate alongside each other, a bidding process will being introduced. This will ensure the best events for the city and district, with the best organisers are chosen.
During the bidding process, a number of factors will be considered, including: the organiser’s past performance in organising previous events, previous compliance, economic benefit of the event, previous complaints and compliments, and the organiser's ability to meet deadlines. This list is not exhaustive and other relevant factors will be considered.
Dates requested after the 23 October deadline will be judged on a first-come-first-served basis.
