IF: Milton Keynes International Festival 2014 is seeking food outlets, independent food traders, mobile meal-makers or pop-up restaurants to have concessions at the Festival in July.
‘Festival Central’ - the main hub of the 10 day event - will this year be located at South Willen Lake Park (also called Willen Lakeside Park), a popular destination for families with good footfall all year round and home to the large-scale outdoor firework and pyrotechnic spectacle on the opening weekend.
Throughout the 10 days, the Festival attracts around 90,000 people. Festival Central will be home to the popular 500 capacity Spiegeltent (highly decorated travelling dance hall with mirrors, drapes and stained glass) and the Acoustic Stage in the exotic Arabian bar tent with a capacity of 100, with both spaces offering multiple events each day in addition to a number of family events and installations concentrated in the Festival after schools have broken up for holidays, from Wednesday 23 to Sunday 27 July.
Concessions for food, drink and associated merchandise are offered for Festival Central for both weekends (with optional extension days).
We are particularly keen to source a small number of high quality food, drink and merchandise outlets that reflect and complement the high quality international programme.
