Bournemouth’s Wheels Fest to cost council £200k – but will create 150 jobs and bring £9m to economy

Bournemouth Echo: THRILLS’N’SPILLS: A racing car in Bournemouth Gardens THRILLS’N’SPILLS: A racing car in Bournemouth Gardens

PROMISING F1 championship cars, BMX stunt riders and monster truck parades, the world’s first International Wheels Festival is set to cost Bournemouth council at least £200,000.

But although this budget has been set aside for the family-orientated, motorsport event, it is hoped the festival will create 150 jobs and bring a £9million boost to the economy.

Marking the start of summer, the large-scale event will be held from Saturday, May 24 to May 26 and will boast displays from classic cars, skilled skateboarders and customised cars.

Hailed as Britain’s biggest free wheels themed festival, the word-class event is expected to attract around 360,000 people to the town and mirror the Air Festivals’ success. Cabinet Member for Tourism Cllr Lawrence Williams, said: “A budget of £200,000 has been set aside for the Wheels Festival and £50,000 has already been received in sponsorship.

“There could also be additional infrastructure costs. We are hoping to recover the costs through commercial trading, sponsorship, grants and revenue from the park and ride scheme in a similar way to the Air Festival.”

Michael Schumacher’s F1 championship car sped through the Lower Gardens and was joined by a Bigfoot Monster Truck and sleek yellow Lamborghini Murcialago as part of the taster showcase in October.

Director of Bournemouth Tourism, Mark Smith, said: “The announcement of this new event is already creating a buzz amongst local businesses because it will be based on a similar business model to the tremendously successful Bournemouth Air Festival. This major new festival will further cement Bournemouth’s reputation as a premier destination.”

It is hoped there will be wheel-themed films and performances at the event, with potential funding coming from an Arts Council bid.

Do they really think an Arts Council grant is a realistic proposition?
You need a carefully thought out and researched development plan. That means someone need to know what they are doing.

150 jobs created....students standing as marshals on £6 a hour more likely ? slightly different I think.....
Saying that, this has got to be better than the £300,000 wasted on the arts festival. Please dont waste our money on that rubbish again - remember not everyone is a day tripper spending money on ice cream for the council...

a car cannot be art because it is a functional item. £200k isn't a great deal of cash so I'm sure one of the Oil or energy companies would be happy to sponsor it for naming rights.

In the old days, before the square was pedestrianized and the Royal Exeter was the centre of the universe there used to be a 'Wheels Fest' every Friday night when the Exeter chucked out at 11. The circuit was up commercial road, round the Triangle, down the Avenue, up Old Christchurch road, round Beales then down Gervis place back to the Square. It was half a dozen circuits posing, then off home, or to a club if we still had money!
And we used to have a designated driver then too!

Another example of creative number crunching from the Council - 150 temporary jobs for 3 days, and who will benefit from the £9m ? the usual suspects S&D Leisure and a handful of hotels who will hike their prices. Another clue that these and many over hyped claims from the town hall are not based on fact is that they always contain the same caveat "it is hoped"....... fingers crossed in other words.
.
Its the businesses who will benefit financially from this event who should be paying for this event not the local council tax payer.
.
Beesley and his mates should be concentrating on improving local schools and other core services not on organising low end "family-oriented" events.

To really go up-market may be the route should take in the Westover if we've got to compete with Monaco.
All we need to do then is let the sea flood the lower gardens and turn them into a marina then rename the town Bournaco. All the council would need to do is control the weather!
