WOULD you like to host a festival at South Park?

Oxford City Council is calling for event submissions from organisers who would like to host a large-scale event at the green space in 2019.

South Park, which is managed by the city council, can host up to four events of 500 or more people each year, as granted by the deed of covenant.

This year, it has already hosted Common People music festival, and will be hosting the Foodies Festival, Cancer Research UK’s Pretty Muddy and Oxford Round Table’s Fireworks display in November.

Now the authority wants locals to help fill the calendar for next year.

Council board member for culture Mary Clarkson said: "Each and every year, we welcome new visions for large-scale events at South Park.

"This is a wonderful venue for spectacular festivals and events in the city and we are looking forward to receiving applications for events which will help create long lasting personal and collective memories for Oxford’s diverse communities"

Applications should include:

• Detailed information about the planned event

• Proposed dates

• Predicted attendance

• Activities on offer

• 'How it can promote Oxford’s communities, while protecting the site’s archaeologically-significant ridges and furrows'.

Further, the council said it would specifically welcome events which were environmentally-friendly, which 'encourage healthy lifestyles and eating' or which 'promote equality and celebrate diversity, while developing understanding between Oxford's communities'.

Anyone interested in making a pitch is asked to email events@oxford.gov.uk to receive more information and an application form.

Completed applications must be submitted no later than 9am on Monday, September 10.
