A York Council statement says,
“The York council has been approached by an event and production company, Thesus, to seek its permission to locate the BBC CBeebies themed children’s rainbow adventure experience within part of Castle car park between 9th September and 6th October 2020.
It is intended that the facility will be provided in various locations across the UK through a road show and York has been chosen as one of the preferred destinations.
The facility will provide a hosted children’s experience providing a CBeebies branded soft play and learning adventure experience.
The council is charging an income which it will obtain up front and which is in line with anticipated income it would receive from the parking spaces that the facility will occupy.
The proposal follows similar events held on the Castle Car Park, such as the Rose Theatre. It also adheres to the aspirations of the Castle Gateway project which identifies the site as a future events space and for which the Council are trialling different uses upon”.
The Council is currently building a multi storey replacement for the Castle car park. It is unlikely to be finished before the end of the year,
