People are being asked for their views on a major festive event in Bury St Edmunds that is undergoing a review.
The Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre, which was established in 2004, attracts more than 120,000 visitors to the town over a four-day period.
Fair organisers, St Edmundsbury Borough Council, felt as the event is now in its 12th year it was the “opportune” time for a formal review.
Members of the public can contribute their views by taking part in a survey by 5pm on September 25.
The council would also like to hear the views of businesses, and they are invited to attend a workshop at the Apex on September 22 at 6pm.

The review, which is being carried out ahead of next year’s fair, is to gain a greater understanding of the resources needed for an event of this size. It will also investigate running the Christmas Fayre as a commercial event, establishing an ‘arm’s length vehicle’ to run it and considering it in relation to the Ourburystedmunds Business Improvement District group and the emerging Destination Management Organisation.
