Mobile Catering Pitches / Events

by Samantha

I am starting my business plan for a mobile catering business and need some help......

1. Who do I contact to get a roadside pitch?

2. How much is rent for a roadside pitch in the North-West of England approx?

3. Where can I get hold of a list of UK events that I could rent a pitch at?

If anyone can answer these questions I would be greatful.

Many thanks

Contact Your Local Council and Highway Agency
by: Anonymous

Hi Samantha,

The best people to ask would be your local council or the highways agency with regards to a road side pitch - see if they can point you in the right direction. As for rent this again is something that I can not give you a solid answer on as this is dependent on who ever owns the land. As far as I am aware most roadside pitches are rent free or they pay very little.

As far as U.K events are concerned the best resource that I’ve seen is a website called eventsbooks co uk - just Google it. They have a book that list events all year round which also includes numbers and addresses for you to contact.

Well I hope this info helps you out.
Best of luck
