We have been running an event in a park in london for nearly 15 years. The council has decided to bid our event off to the highest bidder for more revenue. Does anyone know if there are any legal rights for event organisers in the UK.
I have tried to explain to the council that the event was started by us and we own the event and they own the land. They can increase the rent (although they have already increased by 156% in 4 years) and not sell our event to someone else as they don’t have the right to do that … or do they?
