Opportunity to develop and operate catering and leisure facilities
Castle Park, Colchester

Colchester Borough Council is seeking expressions of interest from catering and leisure operators to develop and deliver high quality and innovative facilities at Colchester’s award-winning Castle Park.

The current lease of the café, boating lake and inflatable play concession ends in October 2018. This presents an exciting opportunity to deliver new catering services and leisure attractions in the Park and at the Castle Museum to complement and enhance the current visitor offer.

The Council welcome applications from established operators and also new and innovative providers with proposals which are creative, unique and locally based. Expressions of interest can be for one or more of the facilities and services being offered.

In return for capital investment and the development of new and improved facilities, the Council are offering the opportunity for long-term lease agreements for periods up to 25 years.

Castle Park is uniquely situated adjacent to the town centre and includes two award-winning museums and the town’s visitor information centre. The Park welcomes over 1 million visitors each year and hosts many of the town’s major outdoor events, which attract an additional audience of 60,000 – 80,000 people. Colchester Castle receives 70,000 general visitors and over 20,000 children on school visits annually.

To apply for the above opportunity and for further details of the expression of interest requirements, contact:
