Do you want to hold an event on our land including Clacton's Town Square?

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 application form (see "How to apply", further down this page)

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.
