During the visit of the Tall Ships fleet to Lerwick in July 2023 there will be a significant need for public and contracted catering services and Shetland Tall Ships are seeking expressions of interest from those who may be able to supply suitable services. All proposals should be submitted by 12noon on Friday 30th September.
Full application packs and details can be requested from email@example.com or 01595 502110. Applicants are welcome to apply for more than one contract.
Contracted Event Catering
There are a number of events which event organisers are contracted to provide which will need professional catering and serving staff. This inlcludes the formal Captain's Dinner, the more informal Crew Party and a number of private function deck hires aboard Tall Ships where remote catering, transport and serving will be required.
Public Event Catering
The public event sites are expected to welcome thousands of people every day from 26th to 29th July and there will be a number of opportunities for all kinds of public catering. This may include suppliers in catering tents provided on-site or those with their own vehicle or facility to provide hot or cold food. All providers must be registered with Shetland Islands Council Environmental Health department and be able to provide all relevant hygiene certificates.
In addition to a public bar service at the main Holmsgarth and Victoria Pier sites, there are expected to be a small number of pop up or smaller bar service areas. A bar service at the Captain's Dinner is also required.
