Requested on

FOI 3734
Information provided


I wish to know how much your council has spent on hiring celebrities for local events over the last three years.

Please state the amount, who the celebrity was and which event they were hired for, for example, summer fair. Please also state their role at the event, for example switching on the Christmas lights.


Charnwood Borough Council have not paid for any celebrities to appear at events in the last 3 years.
The council has paid to hire a person to appear in a character costume at the Christmas Lights switch in each of the last 3 years.  If you would like further details of these costs, please let me know.
