End of Project Celebration Events; Invitation to Tender May 2018

Brief: End of Project Celebration Events; Invitation to Tender May 2018.


A fantastic opportunity to plan, manage & deliver an inclusive and spectacular multi-site event or series celebrating the completion of the ‘Revealing Oldknow’s Legacy Project’.

The events will be an opportunity to:

  • thank everyone involved.
  • make a memorable local impact.
  • attract first time and regular visitors to mark the project’s achievements.
  • identify how they could be involved in sustaining momentum and taking the legacy forward.

We seek experienced event managers or group to host outdoor events over three unique locations during August, to celebrate our project to Reveal Oldknow’s legacy.

The sites are: the intricate and beautiful ‘Grand’ Marple Aqueduct; Samuel Oldknow’s Mellor Mill now in dramatic ruins; and the surprising and lesser known Lime Kilns, all situated in Marple, nestled between Stockport and the Peak District.

Budget: £16,000.00 + VAT

Delivery:  June – August 2018

Deadline Instructions:

The contract will be awarded on behalf of this joint project by Canal & River Trust and will be managed by the Learning and Interpretation Officer, Natasha Lolljee.
