Have yourself a merry Allerdale Christmas

Tuesday 15 November 2016

There will be festive cheer across a host of West Cumbrian towns this winter with support from Allerdale Borough Council.

The authority is giving financial and practical help to lots of Christmas events. They include the Victorian Fayre and Live Advent Calendar in Keswick, Taste Cumbria Christmas in Cockermouth, Workington’s ‘Christmas Under The Hub’ family entertainment days, plus Aspatria and Maryport’s Christmas festivals.

The Council’s economic development and sport and leisure teams have been assisting the Town Councils and business and community organisations who are staging events, offering and sourcing financial support, as well as helping with issues like licencing, road closures, advertising and marketing.

Councillor Mark Fryer, Allerdale Borough Council’s Executive Member for Economic Growth, said: “We think community events are hugely important, not only to provide great entertainment for people of all ages, but also to support our local businesses and boost the Allerdale economy. That’s why we commit money and time to them every year and will continue to do so.

“The wealth of events taking place here is brilliant - from food and music, to sport and the arts – and it is fantastic that our communities get so involved in organising them. I want to see our calendar of Allerdale events develop in the future – and, in the meantime, I’m looking forward to some great festive entertainment in our towns.”

The Council has an online ‘one stop shop’ for festival and event organisers who are planning new or existing events and festivals in Allerdale. The specially-created pages provide access to essential information for planning an event for the public and contain links to further organisations and areas of interest.
