The various festival committees in Wimborne work together to share expertise, resources and equipment. We have gathered a collection of stock documents that organisers may find useful when planning an event.


Festival Consortium

We have created generic templates for many of the Policies and Procedures that are needed to run a safe and compliant festival or event. Please download and use as a starting point for your own documents.

Event organisers may need to submit their event details to the Safety Advisory Group.  For more information on the process for submission click here.
