Park Development Framework

Return to homepage


Where are we now?

Events relate to a broad range of activities that bring people together at a set time and place for a common purpose. The Park offers a number of venues and sites that can accommodate a myriad of such events from sporting and community fixtures, to arts and exhibitions, private functions and even site hire for filming.

Each year we host a programme of over 70 events at a variety of locations across the Park. The Park is also frequently used for both film and television locations.

What do we want to achieve?

  • To offer high quality, attractive event venues and sites, together with a supporting infrastructure. This will include venues within our own estate and those accessible on other people‚Äôs land.
  • To use events to attract new visitors, and to encourage visitors to explore new areas and facilities.
  • To offer an expanded and enhanced event venue infrastructure for hire (both commercial and community based).
  • To develop a coordinated Park programme of public, private, community and commercial events.
  • To continue hosting an event programme on our estate that relates to our wider aims and objectives.

How will we deliver?

On our estate

We will

  • Prepare an Event Capacity Strategy that will identify the range of potential venues within the Park. This will provide a coordinated framework for the ongoing enhancement, development and marketing of the Park as a venue for events.
  • Ensure new build facilities provide appropriate event capacity (e.g. meeting rooms, outdoor space etc).
  • Enhance existing build facilities where possible to provide suitable event capacity.
  • Develop appropriate infrastructure at a range of outdoor sites to facilitate the hosting of outdoor events.

Working with others

We will

  • Encourage and facilitate partners to use the Park as a venue for a range of events.
  • Work with our partners to draw together a comprehensive and coordinated Park wide events programme.
