Events on the Town Square (Clacton on Sea)
Since being completed in 2007 the Town Square has been host to all kinds of events from charity fundraisers and public awareness campaigns to food festivals and busking competitions. If you would like to book the Town Square for an event, you will need to complete an event application form.
The key objective of hiring space in the Town Square is to attract and retain shoppers in Clacton Town Centre, through creating a vibrant hub for shopping. We regret that bookings are not taken for either religious or political groups.
Events on Tendring District Council land
There are other areas of land owned by us that can be used for events and some of the more popular ones are Harwich Green, Bathhouse Meadow, The Naze and Martello Bay. As with the Town Square to hold an event on leisure land you will need to complete an event application form.
