Tomorrow, the Council will launch a 12-week consultation on the future of the Winter Festivals (Edinburgh’s Hogmanay and Edinburgh’s Christmas).
Delivered by Progressive Partnership on behalf of the Council, the consultation will seek the views of residents, communities and businesses on how the Winter Festivals should be delivered from 2022 onwards.
The consultation will be open for a period of 12 weeks from Wednesday 24 February 2021 to Wednesday 19 May 2021 and can be found here. (Please note, the link will not be live until tomorrow)
The All Party Oversight Group on Festivals and Events has been engaged during the design of the consultation and Members have been kept updated on progress throughout. An earlier Engagement Phase with community, business and interest groups helped to identify the key issues to be explored during this wider consultation.
Due to the Covid restrictions it is not possible to distribute hard copies of the consultation within communities. Respondents are encouraged to submit views via the Council’s Consultation Hub. However, if it is not possible to access the internet then a printed copy can be requested by phoning 0131 200 2000.
