Festive Lighting Tender

Knaresborough Town Council (KTC) procures and manages the Festive Lighting display in Knaresborough with the aim of enhancing the town at Christmas time to make it a more enjoyable environment for residents, shoppers and tourists. 

2020 sees the end of its current Festive lighting contract and with it, the end of the lease of the majority of its current Festive lights. Whilst KTC has been very happy with its Festive light design, this gives KTC the opportunity to consider a new display for the next three years, to suitably complement the lighting owned by the town and to reflect the market town heritage and atmosphere in the conservation area.

KTC is seeking suitably experienced companies to tender for design, supply, installation, maintenance, dismantling, storage, testing and operation of Christmas Lighting.

The focus of the illumination scheme is the annual ‘switch on’ event, the date for which is determined early in the year and is usually on a Friday in late November (Bright Friday) and the chosen Contractor would need to be present at this event to facilitate the lighting of the Christmas display in the market place.

In addition, from time to time, KTC has a requirement for spring/summer bunting to be erected/dismantled in the town and also for event banners to be erected/dismantled across the High Street. The chosen Contractor would be expected to provide this service upon request at a price as set out in its tender.
