Pavilion Gardens - The Future

We are delighted to announce that Parkwood Leisure we be taking on a management contract to operate the Events, Retail, Catering and Hospitality services at  Pavilion Gardens in 2019.


The contract award comes after months of proposals, scrutiny and hard work to find the right provider for the future of Pavilion Gardens. The Council will maintain ownership of the venue and Parkwood have a five year contract to operate with a business plan to remove the subsidy the Council has previously paid to run the facility. 


The contract will start from the 1st February 2019 and there are exciting plans ahead for what Parkwood want to bring to the Pavilion Gardens.


The events dairy for the Pavilion Gardens and the newly refurbished Octagon Hall will be as planned for 2019.  


As in recent years the Pavilion Gardens will close on the 24th December 2018 and reopen on 1st February 2019 although the doors will open for the CADFAS, Harry Potter and Antique & Collectors events in late January.


Further details about Parkwood's exciting plans will be released in the near future.
